VideoPRXmodule PSP

From GameBrew

Last Updated2011/05/01

VideoPrxModule is a plugin that is capable of performing video capture on PSP's screen using image sequences in GIF formats and take screenshots with a push of a button.

This plugin is a mod version of CoMeCoCoS's Capture.prx, which is based on ADePSP 's SV Capture Module (an adaption of the Video Recorder feature from the GTA Liberty City Stories CheatDevice originally made by Edison Carter).

It has been improved by TIM2001 to support PSP Go and newer firmwares.


There are 2 versions available (PSP and PSP Go).

For PSP version:

Place TIM-GIFplugin.ini to the root directory of your PSP, then place PSP-Rec.prx to the seplugins folder of the Memory Stick.

Open game.txt, vsh.txt in the same seplugins folder (create the files if they do not exist) and add this line

ms0:/seplugins/PSP-Rec.prx 1

For PSP Go version:

Place TIM-GIFplugin.ini to the root of your PSP Go internal memory, then place PSP-GO-Rec.prx to the seplugins folder of the internal memory.

Open game.txt, vsh.txt in the same seplugins folder (create the files if they do not exist) and add this line

ef0:/seplugins/PSP-GO-Rec.prx 1
