Well, this update is only worthwhile if you have a ps3, which I don't*sigh*, so...yay for ps3 owners.

Has anyone been able to encode full screen videos from Firmware 3.30?? I know PSP video9 works on a PC, but what about a mac? That update would be more useful than this new one.

The update has been posted on the PSP site (surprisingly fast!) - North American link:
The same page lists the updates. Note that there's nothing new in 3.40 for non-PS3 users that isn't already there in 3.30. You might as well wait until something useful happens, like Sony gives us all $600 coupons to buy a PS3.

LOL @ Michael
This is exactly what everyone wanted when the PS1 was out. And now it's here! 2 generations later!

@4: Yes I have, and it looks gorgeous.
Unfortunately, though, I've been creating these video files with ffmpeg via custom command line switches. (I also built ffmpeg from scratch from the latest source code, but that isn't necessary to get the video modes to work.)
I'm not near that computer, but I can post a sample command line later tonight, if people are interested.
As for the user-friendly front end programs for ffmpeg, I did create a profile for 3GP Converter. I would assume other programs will update their profiles shortly, if not already. The video format is just another h.264 variation, like the specific iPod and PSP formats.
