Converting Movies To Psp Fomat

Hey again, this is a real quick guide for anyone interested to get a movie onto there PSP without all the fluff i have seen elsewhere. I just watched africa the Serengeti on my PSP and heres is the lowdown.

Movie- approx 40 minutes - dvd Saved to hard drive - 2.6GIG - using DVD Decryptor (free program) try google
Transfered to avi format - 377MB-using Super
DVD Ripper (9 FREE trial uses) then you must buy
Traansfered to MP4 -37MB -using the (basically free) Image Convertor 2

Average movie breakdown - using above as a guide only.
so im guessing the average movie may be 4.5gig for example sved to 800MB
CONVERTED TO 70-80MB

Ok use DVD decryptor to save the movie to your hard drive eg. C:\africa (it wil save it for you as described) when completed find the folder c:\africa on your computer and find the vob file in that folder - generally the largest one and right click and play it with your dvd program to see what part it is. If its the correct movie part you now know thats the one you need.

Once you have located the vohb file you want to transfer open DVD Ripper and go to wizard icon. There you will see an icon of VOB to AVI button. Click it and then it wil ask to locate the file. Locate the file and click it. It will SCAN THE FILE (just wait till that finishes) a parameter box opens next and just click the arrow. It then askes for file compression - choose microsoft windows media and then click ok Then press the start button. It will now convert the vob into avi format. (there are also other opions ie;dvd to avi etc) I have only used the vob to avi for this test.

After DVD ripper has transferred the file it will save it to the same folder as the original movie was in eg: c:\africa\viteots. Open the file and you will now see an AVI icon containing the movie.

Make sure you PSP is on and in usb mode then open Image converter 2 and press on movie / add to list. For this example i click on c:drive the found the folder Africa and opened it and there was my converted AVI file. Click the file press ok and it will be transfered to your PSP for viewing pleasure.

*****Note***** i only converted one VOB file as thats all there was for this particular movie. If you have more then one vob file you may need toi try the dvd to avi when you rip. This is just smallest possible file so you can get value out of a 512 card.

Good luck!

Not able to copy movies on Sony 8GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for PSP


Before you go throwing any old video file onto your PSP, make sure you have the following items:
  • The PSP. This is self-explanatory.
  • The .MP4 video files.
  • Video conversion software to convert non-MP4 files to MP4, the format the PSP reads.

Converting Movies to Psp Format


DVD Decryptor is great, but sometimes it's not so user-friendly. Might because it's free, and we can not ask everything from a freeware. Anyhow, If anybody needs good dvd ripper, I suggest wondershare dvd ripper platinum as it is the best one that ive used untill now.I ain?t gonna paste large paragraphs of how powerful it acts, 'coz what's important is i just want to share a good tool for those who are indeed in needs of such a tool. http://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/dvd-ripper-platinum.html#205

Toshiba Gigabeat (60GB): How to put movies on?


Yes you can put movies on Gigabeat but it's time consuming and takes 3 programs to do it. We use DVDfab Platinum,3GP_Converter and Windows Media Player. If someone out there has a simpler way please post. 1st. Rip your movie to your hard drive and remember where you put it. (We've found using DVDFab Platinum it's easiest since we have PSP, Gigabeat & I-Pod and it offers a conversion program for all plus burning our home movies is a cinch.) 2nd. Open your 2nd conversion program (we use 3GP_Converter) and drop your burned movie files into it. We love the 3GP cause you just drag & drop. I don't know why the Gigabeat needs an extra conversion but it does, my PSP is easier to get movies onto. =( 3rd. Open your now fully converted movie with Windows Media Player. And you know the rest: just sync. While I love my Gigabeat it's pretty ridiculous to have to do all this to watch one little movie because it doesn't always work. However, unlike my PSP I can put a whole bunch of movies & pics & music on my gigabeat without running out of room! My husband is a computer geek and has tried several programs and this is the easiest way he's found to rip movie, yikes!
