Hello all,

I am starting to work on the first Israeli video podcast, and we are now trying to figure out what format to publish it under. While pondering about this, I wrote a graphical program that will let you convert Video files for PSP format. And it should also run on iPods (however the screen resolution is specifically for PSP).

The program uses a command I found somewhere (you can see it in the code). The GUI is written in wxpython, which I just started learning not long ago. It is really useful for these small apps.

The requirements to get this working are:

  • python
  • ffmpeg
  • python-wxgtk2.6

To run it just type:
python pspenc.py

You can download the program here

If you’re using OS X, I recommend encoding videos for PSP using a program called HandBrake, you can read more about the encoding options for PSP here:

HandBrake also works on Linux.. So won’t recommend as classifying it as “OS X only”.

Still, I can imagine any collaborated project would produce something more capable than PSP Enc. But the thing about Enc is its simplicity..
