  • Interesting Discovery, iTunes video

    Made and interesting discovery today, while playing around with the newest version of iTunes. As we all know, video is supported, specifically mp4 format. I've found this to be incredibly useful, due to a few nice coincidences. I also own a PSP with a 1GB card, and regularly compress/transcode movies to mp4 for it, using windows freeware called PSPVideo9. I tried importing some of the PSP compressed files into iTunes on the Mac, and not only did they work, they actually look pretty good! Not quite stunning, since the program is set to compress to a lower resolution and 16:9 AR, but it looks fine on a PSP screen, and I'll bet it would look fine on any of the 7" screens most of us use. (I will confirm or deny this as soon as my lilliput comes in.) The best part is, I have already added three ~2h movies to my iTunes library, and they only take up 1.16GB disk space, total! Doing the math, I could fit many more movies than I own on my 80GB HD. Just thought I'd through out a plug for a convenient transcoding program to anyone who hasn't played around with the PSP yet.

    I did not know PSPVideo9. I saw others options. But never try it.

    HandBrake can convert a lot of video format but I do not know about PSP.
    HandBrake can convert large DVD video to smaller format with good quality. I have tried HandBrake to extract video from DVD and it worked fine.

    Now, I will go look at PSPVideo9.
    Help me keep my web site up to date.
