If you are much a movie fan like me, you can make it look so much like a portable media player to watch videos except playing games. Unfortunately, something went wrong when you try to transfer AVI files to PlayStation Vita for playing, below are two related questions:

Q1: The question is I would like to transfer and get some of my movies files onto it for playback on my trip. And most of my video files are in AVI (or Divx/Xvid) format. Does PS Vita play AVI files actually? I know PSP couldn’t but not sure the latest console from Sony can play the most popular video format around.

Q2: Has anyone with an imported Vita tried this? I’m wondering if you can copy .avi files from a USB stick onto the Vita like you can on the PS3.

From the PS Vita official website, you can find the supported file formats of PS Vita, and you can easily get the information that PS Vita cannot support AVI files at all. However, despite lack of offical support, you can watch AVI videos on PS Vita smoothly. I am sharing my experience to help those who are wondering how to get .avi files work normally on PS Vita.

Since AVI isn’t the compatible format of PS Vita, you need to convert AVI to PS Vita friendly format (e.g. H.264 mp4) in advance. In this case, we need a video converter app. Video transcoding tool varies, a recommended one here is Pavtube Video Converter. The program is easy to use yet transcodes and re-code the AVI to mp4 for PS Vita at a super fast speed ( based on NVIDIA CUDA TM & AMD App Acceleration ).
