Sharing to mobile phones and players

Share a movie to a mobile device

You can export movies for playback on cell phones, some PDAs, and portable media players, such as video iPods, and PlayStation Portable (PSP) devices. Premiere Elements has presets that automatically provide for a number of these devices. You can also customize presets to match the format requirements of a given device.


Export using an iPod or PSP preset to produce your own video podcasts (also called vodcasts).

  1. Consult the user guide for the device to determine the video file formats it supports.
  2. Click Publish And Share to display the Publish And Share panel. Then, click Mobile Phones And Players.
  3. Select your player from the list at the top of the panel.
  4. Select a preset from the Preset menu. The details, such as file type and frame rate, appear below the preset name.
  5. Type a name for your file, and then click Browse to specify a location to save the file.
  6. (Optional) Click Advanced and specify options as desired.
  7. You can save the changes you make to a preset as a new preset for future use.

    You may need to customize a 3GP preset to export video that will play on a specific 3GP phone. Check your phone’s user guide for its requirements. Also, not all phones support the 3GP format exported by Premiere Elements.

  8. Click Save. Premiere Elements renders your movie into a file that you can copy to the device.
