PSP Video Max Res
I'm out and a bout for a very long Doctors apppointment tomorrow (a good few hours) and whilst I have a few UMD Videos to pass the time (maybe Transformers The Movie? As with the rest of my UMD I own them on DVD too) I'd like to watch my Rocky Horror Picture Show DVD.
There is a small problem here in that obviously a DVD physically won't fit onto the UMD drive :P I tried to DVD decrypt the image but as the audiotracks are not labelled as well as I'd like, I ended up ripping it with the DVD commentary and not the movie audio... not my fault I swear :P Anyhow I can rip it again that's NP as after all I bought and own the original DVD. The main problem I do have though is after an hour of waiting for a conversion @ max quality using pspvideo9 the image quality was still crap.
Can anyone reccomend a tried and tested means to do it in the PSP's alleged max resolution of 480 x 272? File size isn't much of an issue now I have 32Gb of storage thanks to my Photofast CR-5400 :)
I should point out I'm not interested in piracy, but I would like to watch material I own in a time and format under fair use policy which I find convenient for me.
If the topic is a little too risque and has to be locked or deleted then it would be a shame but so be it :(
EDIT: First pic is my original DVD to show I'm not scamming :P 2nd is UMD, DVD & DVD of Transformers the Movie, 3rd is UMD & DVD of Fight Club,4th is UMD & DVD of Be Cool. I have other exmaples but these do for now. Who is the thief, me or the industry? :P

Hmm, i use a program called Too3GP. It is made for converting video tk mobile devices. I use it to make perfect quality videos for the iPhone. And when I say perfect k mean perfect :nod: the odd thing is that the my 3GS will actually play videos way higher than the screen resolution sk maybe your PSP can as well. Normally I use the following settings
Video: 2500kbps MP4 (h264). VBR
Resolution : 640 x 480

Max resolution is 480x272 AFIK(which maintains the 16:9 ratio I think)
DVD decrypter >Rip DVD
Xvid4PSP>convert to Mp4 for PSP (Which is FAR better than PSPvideo9, I've been using it the last 3 or so years. And would never use anything else.)
Or you can use Xvid4PSP's built in DVD converter. But I hear it's rather slow, haven't tried it myself yet

First of all - whatever works. Just a minor nitpick, though, you're wasting bandwidth on a higher resolution and CPU time on the device downscaling it. Better to go with the correct res if you can.

Avidemux 2.5.4, gives best results if you know what you're doing, has a preset for PSP and is 100% free. The max res the PSP can handle is 480p, maybe up to 576p for PAL sources.

I tried Xvid4PSP with some porn (hehe) and it worked a treat on the PSP though on laptop playback was a little jumpy...
Just testing it now with Mongrels Season 1 Episode 1 (the series is AWESOME!) but I'll start the process all over again in the morning with Rocky Horror, this time giving the convrsion a fair chance on the PSP. I should have a couple of hours before I set off to get it done ;)
Cheers though guys I'll let you know how I got on :P

I have heard some people having audio Sync issues with different versions of it. I'm not sure which though, it's been a long time. I never had any issues.
Now another program MKV2Vob I would have constant out of sync issues with some video files, even ones that needed 0 transcoding.
I got too irritated so now I generally encode a test video with Mkv2Vob and see if it's out of sync or not for PS3 playback. If it is, I use Xvid4PSP because it also has presets for the PS3/360! And they work pretty well with SD content. I have not had a chance to test out HD encodes. (Mostly because at the time I hadn't upgraded my PC yet)
But it's no use now since my PS3 YLOD
