Neuros solves MPEG Recorder PSP playback problem

Patch improves encoding for iPod, phones too

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Neuros Technology has released a firmware update for its MPEG 4 Recorder 2 that allows the gadget to once again encode video that will play back on a PlayStation Portable with Firmware 2.7 installed. The new release also adds a set of phone-friendly recording formats.

Earlier this month, Neuros warned users that Sony's latest PSP system software update breaks compatibility with video recorded from TVs, DVDs, PVRs and other sources using the Recorder 2. The gadget's new firmware, version 2.0.12, fixes the problem and ups the volume of video soundtracks by 30 per cent.

Neuros also said the firmware now allows iPod-friendly video to be encoded at the Recorder 2's Fine (1Mbps) and Superfine (1.5Mbps) quality settings.

Finally, the update adds encoding resolutions of 176 x 120 and 320 x 240, both at 15fps, to create recordings better suited for playback on phones and PDAs. Neuros said it recommends using The Core Pocket Media Player (TCPMP) application with its AAC plug-in to play the .MP4 files, though it warned the quality of the playback is heavily dependent on how powerful a processor your mobile device sports.

MPEG 4 Recorder 2 owners can get the update here. ®
