Brief Outline of PMF File

What is a PMF file? In a nutshell, PMF stands for Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Movie File, a proprietary format that can be extracted from PSP disk images. Many people would like to save some classic and impressive cutscenes, movie intros and outros to local drive for playback or editing. To your disappointment, PMF is a tough file type that only a limited number of programs can handle it normally. Even if it plays, you'll find there is still no sound.

Based on the search results, Lande PMF Player is recommended to play PMF video files on Windows desktop, but unfortunately, this player seems to be discontinued as I didn't find any valid download link over the Internet. On the other hand, PPSSPP can run parts of PMF files, but some are locked and unplayable. Instead of some unconfirmed complicated guide, I will introduce two simple methods to convert PMF to MP4 with audio.

Method 2 - Convert PMF to MKV Using a Lightweight Utility

If there is still no sound after the conversion, you may give it a shot with a lightweight utility I found accidentally on a forum. I've tried it with several PMF files to see if the converted files have sound, and to my surprise, it worked like a charm. As it didn't seem to have an official download link, I've zipped the utility and uploaded to Google Drive.

Step 1

Download this PMF video converter via this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BBMu8qhe9t0OPipf7Pz-KMZHcFo7N07O/view. Then unzip this package file, and you'll see a folder named "PMF2MKV". Open this folder and run "PMF2MKV.exe" therein, then a blank window will pop up.

Step 2

Locate your PMF files, and drag them into this blank window. This neat program will automatically process and convert all PMF file to (H.264/AAC) MKV in the same folder. Just wait for the complete message. After done, the MKV video should play with sound. If you prefer another video file type, change the video format with the aforementioned free converter.

You're welcomed to upload and send some PMF files you failed to convert to me for further investigation. Meanwhile, it would be much appreciated if you share with me any better solution.
