.divx to.. well anything else

Is there a video converter that can convert .divx files to any other type of video (preferably .mp4) which has a pretty easy to use UI?

I really want to get some divx videos onto my PSP and since i keep my PSP legal I need a converter. Any help please?

You should be able to just mux it into an MP4 file using YAMB. There shouldn't be a need for re-encoding, but well, I don't own a PSP so I wouldn't know the specifics...

ok ty for helping.. im testing PSP video9 now to see if it works..

another question - why cant i take screenshots of .divx videos? i can prtscrn and save a jpg of any other video type. but when i try .divx it wont let me and does all sorts of weird stuff such as continuing to show the video playing in the paint window.. just like a gap in paint that goes through to the video player.

Is there any way around this?

PSP Video 9 should be able to convert pretty much any AVI file to PSP-compatible MP4 format. Be sure to upgrade your PSP firmware to the latest version though, as only from firmware version 3.30 onwards you can play MP4 files in the native resolution of the PSP (480x272), plus it makes it easier to copy files (just put them in the \VIDEO\ folder).

If you want to convert MKV files with PSP Video 9, see this guide (second post).

As for taking screenshots: I use MPC with the output setting "VRM9 windowed". Maybe some other setting is better, as long as it's not "Overlay mixer" (which won't work). You can find the setting I'm talking about by going to View -> Options, then expand the Playback group and you'll find it under Output. You can then take screenshots with MPC by pausing the video and going to File -> Save image...

@martino:
Sorry, but muxing DivX in MP4 isn't likely going to work on the PSP. The PSP is very picky about which codecs and resolutions it'll play.

PSPvideo9 worked a treat for the .divx files... ty for the help. I dont really care about the screenshots now that i intend to convert most of the videos that i will want to take shots from.. but i am still confused as to why it refuses to let me prtscrn and paste pictures of videos into paint.. Could anybody tell me why it doesnt let me do this?

I'm not entirely sure about this (so somebody is bound to correct me), but as far as I know Print Screen only captures what is drawn by Windows API calls, that is the normal windows interface etc.

The video screen is drawn on the screen an entirely different way: it uses hardware acceleration and/or DirectX (=the same thing used for Windows games) to draw the video, because doing it using Windows API calls is slow. This alternative way of drawing the video is called an "overlay".

The only way I know how to still use Print Screen with a video player is with WMP (Windows Media Player). To do this open WMP and go to Tools -> Options, then select the Performance tab and set "Video Acceleration" to "None" (it's set to "Full" by default). Note that this will obviously negatively impact normal video playback in WMP.
