How to Rip Dvd, Convert Video and Convert Youtube Video to Psp

It is no doubt that PSP is an excellent game player. However, it is not playing games all the time; you can use it to do a ton of other cool and (highly useful) things when you’re not in the game mode. Thanks to its pretty big screen compared to other portable video players, PSP is a nice gadget for watching videos as well. So the following tutorial focuses on how to rip DVD movies and TV shows, convert video files and convert online YouTube/Google videos to MP4 format for playback on Sony PSP.

The only tool you need is Clone2Go DVD to PSP Converter. Unlike other DVD to PSP converter programs, this DVD to PSP converter combines the following main features into one program:

DVD to PSP

Convert video to PSP

Download online YouTube/Google video

Convert downloaded YouTube/Google videos or local FLV videos to PSP

Note: Clone2Go DVD to PSP Converter is not free. It does cost USD29.95 to register the full version. And there are numerous DVD ripper and video converter programs that can convert DVD’s and videos to PSP compatible video formats. However, if you want to avoid the trouble of finding so many free programs and don’t mind paying a small sum of money, the all-in-one Clone2Go DVD to PSP Converter would be the best choice for you.

First, let’s take a look at the main interface of Clone2Go DVD to PSP Converter.

And below are the highlights of how to use Clone2Go DVD to PSP Converter.

1. Add DVD movies or TV shows

Insert the DVD disc into the disc drive, click the Open DVD button to import it if you are going to enjoy the DVD movie on your PSP. Or if the DVD movie is saved as a folder on your computer, you need to click the Add Video button to locate that folder, which is composed of two separate folders: VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS. From the VIDEO_TS folder, select the .vob file to import and then click OK.

2. Import video files

You can also import videos stored on your PC by clicking the Add Video button and then click OK. The supporting formats are shown as follows:

3. Download YouTube or Google videos

If you want to enjoy online YouTube or Google videos on your PSP, click the YouTube button on the main interface. In the pop-up window, copy and paste the URLs of the YouTube/Google videos one by one.

There will be a list of the added YouTube/Google videos, which will be downloaded automatically one by one. And the downloading status is clearly shown on the list. After the status of all of them indicates Completed, you can tick whichever videos you want to watch on your PSP.

After the DVD’s, videos or YouTube/Google videos are imported, you can preview it on the main interface. If you only want a clip of the DVD/video, you can drag the Start to trim and Stop to trim button to get the certain segment.

4. Choose a proper profile

From the drop-down list of Profile, you can select the most appropriate profile:

Now you can click the Start Encode button to starting ripping DVD movies or TV shows, converting videos or converting YouTube/Google videos for your PSP.

5. Transfer videos to PSP

Since it is very complicated to transfer videos from PC to PSP. Here, I’d like to introduce a totally freeware called PSP Video Manager. You can download it to help you directly transfer videos to PSP or export PSP MPEG-4 videos located in your PSP to your PC without manually renaming PSP MPEG-4 files.

5 Ways To Convert Powerpoint Presentations To Video

Benefits of PowerPoint
PowerPoint is a powerful presentation application which is very commonly used by lectures, businessmen, students, trainers, etc. It is easy to use and featured with a lot of functions to create interesting and dynamic slide presentations. This has made it widely accepted and utilized.

Benefits of Video
Video is powerful because it’s demonstrative, clearly depicting procedures, techniques or visual information such as charts and graphs. Most of all, video showcases charisma of live images and animations, allows for transparency and communication skills, which can lead to trust. It is also a good idea to make videos for special occasions as a way of watching them and reminiscing the good times.

 Benefits of converting PowerPoint presentations to video

-> Display your presentations in a more vivid way
-> With PowerPoint in video format, it is easy for uploading to blog and websites
-> Even there is no computer, you can also view your presentations
-> Videos can be uploaded to portable devices such as iPhone, iPod and Pocket PC

 5 Ways to Convert PowerPoint Presentations to Video (free ways and cost-effective ways)
Method 1: Upload your presentations to http://www.slideshare.net which is one of the world’s largest communities for sharing presentations. It can generate video for your presentations.
After uploading your presentations onto it, you can directly download the generated video onto your own computer, or embed the video to your blog.

But there are limitations to the presentations uploaded to it. Max size of the presentation is limited to 100MB; animations, video clips and other complex elements couldn’t be added; PowerPoint 2007 is not supported. Sometimes, objects inserted into the presentation may be modified after the uploading.

Some other similar online PowerPoint sharing sites such as auhtorstream and slideboom also support generate video for the presentations uploaded. The advantage is that you don’t need to download any programs onto your computer and they are all free. If your presentation’s size is not too big, and there are only texts and pictures in your presentation, you can have a try at these sites.

Method 2: Use Camtasia which costs $299 to record your presentation and then generate a video
Step1: In the Task List, select Record PowerPoint.
Step2: Open a PowerPoint presentation to record.
Step3: Select the recording options from the PowerPoint Add-in Toolbar. Click the Record button.
Step4: The presentation opens in presentation mode. A Camtasia Studio dialog opens in the lower right corner of the screen. Click the Click to begin recording button.

Step5: Progress through the PowerPoint presentation slides. To stop the recording before the last slide, press <ESC>. To stop the recording at the end of the presentation, click Stop recording.
Step6: Enter a file name and location and click Save. The presentation recording saves as a Camtasia Studio recording file.

Advantages with this method: The program can capture slide timing, animations, sound effects, webcam video and any applications displayed on screen during the presentation. You can also record your own narration while the screen-capture process is being carried out.

Disadvantages: This program eats huge system resources. If the configuration of your computer is not so good, animations may become laggy or even lost.

Method 3: Convert PowerPoint presentation to video with Acoolsoft PPT2Video Converter
When searching free PowerPoint to video in Google, this product came into my sight. After testing, I think it may be the easiest way in all these 5 ways to achieve what we want to do and with a good quality.
Step1: Download this PPT2Video Converter and install it on your computer.
Step2: Launch the program. Click Import button to choose the presentation you want to convert, choose an output format for the video you want to generate. And then click Start button to start the conversion process. (This program can convert presentations to video in MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, 3GP, FLV and MOV.)

Step3: Upload the video to blogs or websites such as YouTube.

Method 4: Use Windows Movie Maker to create a video for your presentations
Windows Movie Maker comes with all Windows XP and Vista installed computers. With this method, it may time consuming and animations in your presentation would be lost after the conversion.
Step1: Save your PowerPoint slide show as “PNG” images.

Step2: Import the images to your Windows Movie Maker.
Step3: Select all the imported images and then add them to Storyboard.

Step4: Add video effects to the slides (Optional)
Step5: Save the slide show as Movie File.

Method 5: Make a QuickTime movie on Mac
Export your presentation as a QuickTime movie “PowerPoint Movie”. Then you can save your presentations to MOV video file. Way to do this: click File -> Make Movie
But in this way, sounds and animations couldn’t be retained. If you are using keynote, just export your presentation to QuickTime file directly.

Take the advantages of PowerPoint and video. Convert your presentations to video. Share your presentation with more people and create a more convenient way to view your presentations.

Blackberry video conversion, how to make best settings and convert step by step

 

I have got a Blackberry Storm as my birthday present and I was deeply in love with the gorgeous screen. I can’t wait to fill the 8gb card with videos to show off to all my friends. Before that I have tried watching a movie on my blackberry that I had already ripped with iPhone/iPod touch settings, The video works but the file size is unnecessarily large and the audio didn’t match up with the video well when playing on the Blackberry. I collect information here and there and at last get the problem solves. So below is the details shared here.

Output video format: mp4
Output audio format: mp3

Video:
Video Size/resolution: 480×320
Video Bitrate: 1200kbps

Audio:
Audio Bitrate: 64kbps
Channels: 2 channels

Now if you have no idea what to do with that, then here are some simple instructions for you.

First you need a third-part software. I use Nidesoft program, probably the best Blackberry converter available. I download from its official website: Nidesoft.
Note: the program you downloaded on nidesoft is free trial version, you are limited to creating video files that are a maximum of 2 minutes long.
In order to convert videos longer than that, you will need to purchase the software with 25 dollars, or download the full version somewhere on google.com

Then if you convert videos from DVD, you should use Nidesoft DVD to Blackberry Converter and follow the step-by-step ways.
Step 1: Launch the program; Insert the DVD disc into the DVD Drive. Click the “Open DVD” button, browse your computer, find the DVD folder of the movie, open it, select some titles and chapters you want or you may select the whole video to convert.

Step 2: make settings: click “profile” drop-down list to select “BlackBerry MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)” format, click “Settings” to set video size and bitrate. If you want to combine two or several titles into one, you may select titles and click blank box before “Merge into one file” to merge them together.

Step 3: click “convert” button to convert videos. Then it will be completed in few minutes.

However, if you convert from other videos, you should use Nidesoft Blackberry video converter with the following ways.
Step 1: Launch the program and Click “Add” button to load source video files to be converted:

Step 2: make settings: click “format” drop list to select “Blackberry MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)” as output video format. Set your video size and quality under the preview window.

Step 3:  Click “Convert” button to start to convert video format.
After the file is converted, just transfer the file to the videos folder on your BlackBerry through the Desktop Manager and enjoy your newly created video. By the way, the file converted can not only used on Blackberry Storm, but also other Blackberry phones such as Blackberry Pearl, Bold, curve.

Ok, until now you have got the whole idea of how to do with it. But you may encounter some other problems when doing it. Below are my problems and solutions I have collected after long time practice, list here to share with you.

I think there’s a virus in this Program!!??
There’s no virus in Nidesoft. One person reported being infected by Backdoor.Graybird, but if you got it from the site I linked to in my post it did not come with the download. If you downloaded it from somewhere else on the web then I am not sure. Probably malware/spamers have uploaded it to phishing sites to snag people. Always make sure you download things from their original website, or from a trusted location like download.com, and always run antivirus and scan stuff you are installing.

The higher the resolution, the better the video quality?
Not necessarily at all. If you’re converting a video that is 640×480 and convert it to the same 640×480 resolution then all you’re leaving is more work for your phone. I understand the login behind it, the pixels get compressed and shop up more clear and sharper. But if you compress these pixels in the conversion process wouldn’t the same thing happen? So why not just convert straight to a 480×320 and save your Storm the trouble?

The higher the bitrate, the better the quality?
Yes, that is true. However, the higher the bitrate, the larger your video files. So it is not necessary to raise your bitrate very high when you feel your video quality is fine. I have spent hours working different settings and the best results have hovered around 1200 kbps.

Where do I find the files?                                                                                            You may change the output directory by press “browse” button, or the destination will be set automatically at C:temp, you may press “open” to find the files.

Can I get ringtones into my Blackberry with the above idea?
Yes, you can. You may get ringtones in that way both from DVD and video. But you need to make a little different settings. As Blackberry audio support .mp3 format, you need to select “Blackberry MP3 Music (*.mp3)” as the output file format. Then drag the converted file into ringtones folder in your memory card.

I’m trying to convert a movie purchased from itunes but the Nidesoft software gives me an error. When I view the details of the error it tells me not enough space on my drive. I have plenty of space. Now when I tried it with a movie (same extension .m4v) that was ripped in the past, it works. Any suggestions??
Meet DRM.
Itunes store video files are encoded with fairplay digital rights management that means they will only play on Itunes, Ipod, or AppleTV. I have found another thread to solve this problem, go to: http://forums.crackberry.com/f135/howto-put-drm-protected-files-your-storm-pics-118585/

Why are there black bars on my video?
Even though it looks “widescreen” the storm is native 4:3 not 16:9. So unless you want to stretch everybody and make them tall and skinny you will still have the black bars.

Is there a way to make it fullscreen without the black bars?
Yes, you can crop the file when you do the transcode, but I haven’t done it with Nidesoft Blackberry video converter yet. I’ll post it when I figure it out.

Ok, that is my details and I would keep updating my thread when got more solutions.

Three ways to convert popular video to Flash video (FLV)

Which kind of website is the hottest nowadays in Web 2.0? Of course it is the video sharing website, such as Youtube, Google Video, Yahoo! video…The content of this kind of websites is of all kinds of things, but the same thing of these websites is that they all use Flash as their video media format, or rather flash video (FLV).

FLV is a brand new streaming video format. It makes use of the widely used platform on the Internet – Adobe Flash Player, and incorporate video into the Flash animation. FLV enables your videos can be viewable to 98% of all Internet users and bring great convenience to the broadcasting of Internet video.

To add FLV to web pages, you need to convert your video to FLV, and make a flash video player on your website to control the playback of the FLV files. Now I introduce three ways to convert video to FLV.

1. Moyea Video4Web Converter
This Video4Web Converter is a Freeware and professional tool to convert all popular video to flv, video to mov, mp4, 3gp and 3g2. It can change the values of the video for brightness, contrast, and volume. You may also trim and crop the video to fit your particular requirement.

2. Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder
Starting with Macromedia Flash MX 2004, it had already supported FLV decoding, but I suggest you use the latest version Flash 8. This version has an independent FLV conversion tool: Flash 8 Video Encoder. This encoder also provides a lot of video settings to meet your need.

3. Online converter
This method is famous to a lot of Internet users. You can convert your videos from your computer hard disk, or from online videos using different protocols (http, ftp, rtmp…) to FLV with the online converter.
But this method is not recommended to convert video, especially for some important video files. For there are several reasons:
Reason 1: It will take more time to convert videos compared with some desktop converters.
Reason 2: It requires that you are in a good internet connection. If the connection speed is slow, the convertion will be very slow or just stop.
Reason 3: The quality of the resulting video is not ensured, various problem is possible, such as audio and video is not synchronized, or only the audio is converted by not does the video…

Video Software Conversion – Simple and Affordable Solution to Convert All Your Videos

Video software conversion is not just for the professionals in the arena. Any person can actually do video software conversion, so as long as you know the basics. Do not be intimidated by all the jargon that comes with converting videos. These technical terms may sound scary – codecs, extractions, bitrates, inputs, outputs, and containers, to begin with – but these are just terms. There really is no reason to be scared of them at all. To make things easier and less intimidating for you, here are some of the basics on video software conversion.

* Choose a program that converts videos according to your needs.

There is actually a fast way for you to do this. First off, you have to choose the file formats that you might be working with. AVI, WMV, and MP4 are some of the popular file formats to consider here. To acquaint you, here are some of the popular players in the market and the file formats they play respectively.

- A computer with Windows for its operating system: WMV or Windows Media Video
- A computer with Macintosh for its operating system: MOV and QT or QuickTime
- iPod: MP4 and MPEG-4
- PSP or PlayStationPortable: MP4 and MPEG4
- Creative Zen Media Player: AVI and WMV
- Microsoft Zune: WMV
- Archos Media Player: AVI and WMV
- DVD Burner: MPEG-2 and VOB
- Other Media Players or MP3 Players: AVI and WMV

If you have a media player, such as the iPod or Creative Zen, it is important to look at the player’s specifications section. You can also check out your guidebook for the video formats that your player supports.

* Understand the configurations.

The configuration of your settings is very important in video software conversion. Furthermore, it is important to know the basic terminologies here.

- CODEC: For the most part, file types are converted and compressed by using a coder-decoder algorithm, also known as a codec. Go for the codec that your portable device supports.

- VIDEO DIMENSIONS: When delving into video software conversion, it is important for your software to know the video dimensions of both the input and output videos. The standard 2.5-inch media player plays 320×240 videos. Your computer screen can fit a 640×480 video, while your TV set fits 720×480, if you are in the US.

- VIDEO BITRATE: Most programs carry a video bitrate of roughly 500 to 1500 kilobits per second or kbps. Video bitrate actually determines the quality of the video. 500 kbps is quite low already, but the video would consume less space. 1500 kbps, on the other hand, consumes more space but it gives you pictures of better quality.

- VIDEO FRAME RATE: Frame rate pertains to how many frames your movie goes through in a second. When conducting video software conversion, you should not touch this unless you know just what you are doing. If the video frame rate is improperly adjusted, your audio and video would not be synced properly as well.

* Enjoy the videos you have converted.

This should indeed be the last step to successful video software conversion. Once all of the conversions are completed, you can then move your files to your media device and start enjoying it!

This great software will help you get started whit video conversion, this tool will help you get started and make the process simple and easy even if you are not a professional video producer.

How to Convert DVD Video Youtube Itunes to Zune

Below is the step by step tutorial about how to transfer DVD movies and TV shows, videos, YouTube and Google videos, iTunes DRM protected music to Microsoft Zune.

Before getting started, let’s take a look at the audio and video formats Microsoft Zune recognizes:

Audio Support
Windows Media Audio Standard (WMA) (.wma); WMA Lossless; Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) (.mp4, .m4a, .m4b, .mov); MP3 (.mp3).

Video Support
Windows Media Video (WMV) (.wmv); MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) (.mp4) Part 2 video; H.264 video; DVR-MS.

So, you see, in order to put DVD movies and TV shows, video files and YouTube and Google video onto Zune, you will need a converter that will go from DVD and video to Zune WMV or MP4 (Video) or Zune WMA or MP3 (Audio). This kind of program can only rip the DVD’s or convert the video files to your PC, however, Microsoft offers Zune users the free program called “Zune Software” to sync the media from PC to Zune. You just need to download it from its official website http://www.zune.net , where you can get the most detailed information about Zune as well.

In this tutorial, I’d like to demonstrate how to rip DVD’s and convert videos to Zune using Clone2Go DVD to Zune Converter. The reason I choose it lies in that, unlike other DVD to Zune converters that can rip only DVD movies for Zune, this DVD to Zune converter can also be used to convert regular video files to Zune. Plus, it allows you to download videos from YouTube and Google and then convert YouTube FLV videos to some format accepted by Zune. Let’s take a look at how it performs:

1. Add DVD movies or TV shows

Insert the DVD disc into the disc drive, click the Open DVD button to import it if you are going to enjoy the DVD movie on your Zune. Or if the DVD movie is saved as a folder on your computer, you need to click the Add Video button to locate that folder, which is composed of two separate folders: VIDEO_TS and AUIDO_TS. From the VIDEO_TS folder, select the .vob file to import and then click OK.

2. Import video files

You can also import videos stored on your PC by clicking the Add Video button and then click OK. The supporting formats are shown as follows:

3. Download YouTube or Google videos

If you want to enjoy online YouTube or Google videos on your Zune, click the YouTube button on the main interface. In the pop-up window, copy and paste the URLs of the YouTube videos one by one.

[img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3021/298286**31_317b356fdf_o.jpg[/img]

There will be a list of the added YouTube videos, which will be downloaded automatically one by one. And the downloading status is clearly shown on the list. After the status of all of them indicates Completed, you can tick whichever videos you want to watch on your Zune.

After the DVD’s, videos or YouTube/Google videos are imported, you can preview it on the main interface. If you only want a clip of the DVD/video, you can drag the Start to trim and Stop to trim button to get the certain segment.

After making sure you have chosen the right profile from the Profile drop-down list, now you can click the Start Encode button to starting ripping DVD movies or TV shows, converting videos or downloading and converting online YouTube/Google videos for your Zune.

4. Convert iTunes M4P music to Zune

The music downloaded from iTunes Store is under DRM protection. In order to play it on your Zune, you need to strip the DRM off and have the iTunes protected AAC (M4P) music converted to Zune WMA or MP3 format. The easiest way is to burn the iTunes M4P playlist to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make an audio CD and then use some CD ripper software to convert the audio CD track back to MP3. And iTunes allows you to burn the protected music files to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make a standard audio CD:

A. Insert a CD-R or CD-RW disc into your CD-ROM drive. You’d better use CD-RW disc as it can be used for more than once.
B. Create a new playlist in iTunes. Add the protected songs to your playlist until you have 72 minutes of music. Click the Burn Disc button, in the pop-up window of Burn Settings, tick Audio CD from the Disc Format checkboxes. Note: You cannot select the MP3 CD option since it requires the protected music files be converted to unprotected MP3 or WMA files.
C. After the audio CD is successfully burned, insert the disc into your CD-ROM drive again. Then you can use iTunes or Windows Media Player to import the music tracks on the burned disc to MP3 or WMA files.

Just share my experience!
