PiMPstreamer homebrew streams video
One of things I wanted in the next official firmware upgrade was the ability to stream video. A reader by the name of Joel stated that "the PSP doesn't have a Core 2 Duo, it has 237 Megahertz. Live streaming video needs mmuch more."
Well, looks like homebrew has proven you wrong. Very wrong. A homebrew application called PiMPstreamer has just been updated, and the responses have been overwhelmingly positive. The program lets you stream movies and music from your PC to your PSP. Movies can include traditional MPEG, AVI and even WMV files. It's only been tested on 1.5 firmware, so those of you that homebrew-compatible PSPs might want to check it out. For the rest of us, I think it's a clear indicator that the PSP is very capable of a video streaming function, and we should demand Sony implement it in the next firmware.

Actually, the PSP "has" of 333mhz. Sony underclocks it by default, but homebrew can overclock it.

I don't get it .. Im an owner of a LocationFree box (which granted is not cheap @ this moment, but will definatley be cheaper very soon) which streams my own TV over the wire to my PSP wherever.
What I think is really needed is a simple way to create a LF-based server and thats it. The "DRM" point is that the PSP must "register" w/ the LF box and so must any software. Its that registration protocol someone needs to figure out ...
