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:
- Rip DVD to PSP

From the VIDEO_TS folder, select the .vob file to import and then click OK.

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.
