Not sure if you have tried this once you have converted your movie and placed it On your PSP. If you get the black bars and you cant be bothered to mess around with the settings in PSP Video 9 or similar, Press triangle on your PSP with the movie playing, then navigate to the display section and you can zoom in. Of course it skews the image slightly and depending on the movie it may look fine. Try it. Please anyone correct me if I am wrong, But if you have the black bars on the screen the size of the movie is actually smaller??? So you can get more movies on your card.. What ratio have people been using in PSP video 9? Everyone wants best quality, Full screen and smallest size and not forgetting the sounds cranked up!!! Any suggestions or comments?
