    Just received my new PSP Slim & Lite, can anyone tell me the best / safest place to download DVD Decryptor and PSP Video 9.

    I'm new to all this and don't want to get any viruses or spyware on my PC.

    Thanks

    Rich.

    A neat but more expensive alternative is to buy a Neuros MP4 recorder which will record from a DVD player, Video, TV, Sky or Freeview box straight onto a Memorystick without using a PC. The files appear to be a bit smaller than the default PSP9 settings but the quality is still excellent. The advantage is that it's really just a video recorder so there's no converting to do - you just record in real time.

    The only disadvantage I've found is that everytime you upgrade the PSP firmware, the PSP won't play the old MP4 files (I store them on my PC) and you have to upgrade the Neuros box. Easy to do, but a bit odd because the PSP9 files I have play with no problems on all firmware versions. I've still got mine set up for PSP v2.5 so I'll need to update the Neuros software before I start using the new PSP.

    Hope this helps

    I'm thinking of buying ImTOO DVD Ripper Platinum v4.0 as it looks like an easy way to rip DVD to MP4

    Has anyone had any experience with it ?

    TIA

    Why would you pay for anything when DVD Decrypter and PSP video9 do it for free?

    I know what your saying its just that I'm lazy :)

    I tried using DVD Shrink (already downloaded a while ago) with PSP Video 9 last night, but when trying to convert using PSP Video 9 it got to 100% but kept on converting and wouldn't stop.

    I'll try downloading DVD Decrypter tonight.

    PSP Video 9 does that. It can go to 100% very quickly but may infact only be 5% through the process. I dont know why it does it. The best way to calculate with PSP video 9 is to knwo roughly the lenghth of the film, say. 120 mins. Multiple by 60 and it gives you the total number of seconds. When you are converting using PSP Video 9 use the seconds counter (under conversion statistics) on the left hand side as a measure against the total seconds of the film.

    Or simply look at the file size when your converting it. A 2hr film will come in at roughly 550-700mb.

    does psp video 9 remove the copy protection.

    I put some cheap cartoons on my sons psp with sony's 'media manger for psp' no problem but trying other ones for him like, say pingu on dvd, would not copy (they didn't even show in the transfer list). I'm assuming it due to the copy protection.

    surely it's legal if i own the original?

    No, it doesn't remove copy protection, as far as I'm aware it only converts files to MP4.

    To remove the copy protection you need to use a programme like DVD Shrink or DVD Decrypter etc...

    PSP video 9 is only used to converter the DVD VOB files to MP4. You need DVD Decrypter to get the VOB files off your DVDs in the first place - hence the copy protection doesnt matter.

    I have AnyDVD that strips the copyright protection off. Then I use CloneDVD Mobile to convert to PSP format or MP4 (and other mobile formats like moble phones etc.) It allows you to strip out all the rubbish like adverts, subtitles and unwanted audio files. You can then select the quality (and size) of the converted file and select a still from the film for the thumbnail image :)

    Both AnyDVD and CloneDVD Mobile are available as free demos valid for 30 days.

    I said earlier that I'd had some problems with the Neuros MPEG4 recorder and PSP firmware compatibility. I was proabbly a bit unkind because there is a fix on the Neuros site that sorts it. I've updated my recorder and it works fine now with the new PSP. My gripe was that I'd got about 20 hours' worth of Neuros recodings on my H/D which wouldn't play on my PSP with versions 2.7 or later. Fortunately, I've discovered if you take the MP4 files out of the MP Root folder and drop them in the ordinary "Video" folder, they play no problem. You loose the thumbnail but you can rename the file for ease of reference.

    I use the free downloads and PSP9 is brilliant, but I wouldn't be without the Neuros. You can record straight on to a memorystick from almost any source and you don't need to use a PC. I admit it takes all the fun out of ripping DVDs - extracting and converting files, tying up your PC while you're doing it, crashing the H/D and having to reboot, etc, etc!

    I've also bought a PMR bluetooth 3.5mm dongle from (£20 from Maplins) which works a treat with my Motorola S9 and HT820 phones.

    Cheers!

    If you have an MP4 in the 'Video' folder just drop in a 160x120 .jpg file into the same 'Video' folder with the same name as the .MP4 file and you'll have a still thumbnail image for your video. :thumbsup: e.g. if you have a video called 123xyz.mp4 just grab an image from the net, or make your own and call it 123xyz.jpg. I'm not sure if the image has to be 160x120 but I stick to that resolution and the thumbnails always seem to work.

    If you are using custom firmware on your psp and you sync it using sony media manager it will mess up game folder so you wont be able to run your iso's.

    This is just a warning as i found out the hard way friday when i was converting some divx films using PSP video 9 .

    Anyone had any luck converting any DVDs to PSP H.264 format (480x272)?

    I've tried just about every tool I can find and they all give the same result: the dreaded "unsupported data". Latest tools tried include PSP video 9, Jesterware, Xilisoft, TMpg and a few others who's names I've forgotten as they didn't stay very long!

    The files are loaded onto the MP_ROOT\100MNV01 folder with M4V10001.MP4 and M4V10001.THM names as is the correct way afaik. This is on a SanDisk 4GB duo.

    The MP4 files play ok on the PC.

    Is this possible that it isn't possible on my firmware (3.7)? They didn't work on the earlier version I had either (3.3). :suicide: Is it a case of needing an even earlier firmware? Locating the files in a different folder?

    Thanks

    I am very new to this but I think that if you are running current firmware then all videos now go into the "video" file not the MP_ROOT file, thats where all my videos go into after converting to MP4.

    What is the difference between MP4 and H.264 ?

    Rich.
