PSP Video 9
At a Glance
In the intervening months, PSP Video 9 went from an independently developed conversion tool to being acquired by Red Kawa, makers of the Videora video search and conversion tools. PSP Video 9 had always used some of Videora's conversion technology, but with the acquisition, PSP Video 9 went from a one-trick pony to a full-fledged conversion tool capable of rendering videos in various formats. Its current format lineup supports devices as diverse as the Xbox 360, the Nintendo Wii or DS, Apple's iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV, and Sony's other console, the PS3.
True to its word, though, PSP Video 9 is still the easiest tool to use to convert video files to your PSP. Not only does it automatically choose the best conversion method for your file (thanks to its Web-based VideoWizard feature), but it also creates a thumbnail screenshot, renames the file to the PSP's oddball naming conventions, and puts it right onto your Memory Stick for you. It also keeps a database of video files you've converted, so you can easily choose one or more of your previously-converted files and move them to the Memory Stick for repeat viewing. Viva la portable video!
