480x270 video with Firmware 2.6

Engadget just posted this tidbit about the new firmware that I had missed: it now allows for playing of video at 480x270. This largely has to do with an announcement by Sony yesterday that they would be launching a new version of PortableTV, a PSP-centric video distribution service in Japan, which is compatible with the PSP's browser.

What's more the videos are H.264 at 480x270 (Yay!) and shrouded in a dark net of DRM coding (Boo!).

i've tried recoding some videos in ffmpegX that are the full screen res, but they won't play.

Seems there's still something to stop you and i from making them ourselves. Probably to encourage you to buy overpriced UMDs and DRMed files of content you already own...

I concur - Booooo!
