    I wonder if anybody can shed some light on getting movies onto my psp from my mac.

    I have tried to convert using ffmpegX and handbrake for ripping dvds directly to the psp format. When i load them onto my psp(2.6), they show up as unsupported data. I'm at a loss, i torrented some movies and they work fine, so i must be doing something wrong, any help would be appreciated.

    are they really identical formats? i just don't see why i am not having success where others have. i know it has to be user error, but for the life of me i can't figure out what is wrong.:mad:

    The makers of Handbrake have "Instant Handbrake" which converts straight to iPod/PSP formats, takes out the guesswork. Works nice and fast.

    the only thing that seems to work so far is to run it through handbrake and then through iPSP, pretty f'n kludge and time consuming. any other ideas? does any other mac owner have a psp?!?!

    I just used Instant Handbrake tonight, worked fine. Had to rename the file to M4V11111.MP4, but it worked fine. Super Troopers looked pretty good, hahah.

    Came out to about 400meg. I picked up a 2Gig card today.

    Oh, try PSPWare, it's pretty sweet.

    i have been renaming them, still no go. this is getting gay.

    i've used pspware, but didn't like the format and all the file folders it created on the card, i'll try instant handbrake, yet again.
