    I need a free software that will convert DVD to PSP format. I would like to keep it as one contained program. But if I need 2 thats cool. But the only condition is that it must be free! Thanks!

    PSP Video 9. I can't 100 % verify this, but I remember going straight from VOB to MP4, but I never actually moved the movie to my PSP, I just tested it to see if it worked.

    When I go home tonight I'll check what that other software I have that definitely rips straight from DVD. It was free, and I'll send you the link.

    Are we talking virgin 1.5 firmware or something more recent? For recent firmwares, just use any 'dvd to ipod' software.

    Otherwise, go with a dvd ripper followed by PSP Video 9. It's been a part of the homebrew scene since before there WAS a homebrew scene.

    good call. I actually just came across video 9. I will definatly give it a shot.


    And I have the latest official firmware. In general when going from DVD to PSP is the video quality good?

    yes and you can select your quality with PSP Video 9. I just bought a Sony Walkman MP3 player and since the screen is smaller I go with the 320/240 setup, but I think Video 9 actually lets you go a lot higher now, for some DVD quality video. Also if you use the AVC codec (which is what UMDs use) you can get some excellent quality for the PSP screen.
