Thanks to PS Vita’s OLED wide screen, we can play movies on PS Vita in a pretty good visual experience. However, something went wrong when you try to play some AVI or MKV videos on PS Vita, these two formats aren’t compatible well with PS Vita. From the official website of PS Vita, we can clearly learn that PS Vita only supports h.264 or MPEG-4 videos, and no mention of mkv or avi supported.
So if you plan to watch mkv or avi videos on PS Vita, you should do something in advance, to be honest, you have to convert avi or mkv videos to PS Vita supported video formats. H.264 mp4 format is a good choice. which is really a good balance between quality and video size. Meanwhile, i know a pretty good video converter to help you realizing it. Which is named Pavtube video converter.
Fast conversion speed and convenient operation makes this program rather outstanding. Now, i will share you my own experience to show how it works.
In the first place, you should know this program works on your computer, it has two versions accroding to the mainstream operating system, windows and mac. Just download and install the AVI/MKV to PS Vita converter or Mac AVI/MKV to PS vita converter.
Then, import your avi or mkv files, apart from this, it supports input videos with format MOV, M2ts, MTS, Tivo, FLV, VOB, WMV, MPG and more. All these videos can be converted to you wanted video formats by it.
After importing your movie files, what you should do is selecting output video format for PS Vita. Click on ” Format -> PSP/PS3 -> PSP H.264 movie (*.mp4)”.
This profile works well for PS vita, but if you want to get full screen effect or higher video quality, you can click on “Settings” to make some adjustments, but you should know, higher video quality with a bigger video size, you’d better care more about your storage space.
At last, hit the “Convert” button to start the AVI/MKV to PS Vita h.264 mp4 conversion. After a short while, you will get the converted file, stream it to PS Vita.
