    went into effect on January 1st 2006. For this reason, this guide

    2. DVD subtitle (sub picture), language:
    It is recommended to use the native DVD menu in the preview panel to
    set subtitle (sub picture) and language. You may also change the
    subtitle (sub picture), language in the program's Options menu, but
    there are some DVDs that require the change must be made in the native
    DVD menu instead of the program's menu.

    3. Ghosting Effect on PSP screen:
    Ghosting visual effect is subjective. Some people are more sensitive to
    this visual effect, especially when the picture displayed is in dark
    scenes. This is because the refresh rate of a PSP LCD screen is lower
    than the rate of a normal PC monitor. When the PSP video is also in the
    low fps (15 frames per second), some people may see ghosting effect. In
    this case, try to convert PSP video using 29.97 fps settings (in the
    Option menu) to reduce this effect.

    4. Video Frame Rate
    Known as Frame per Second (FPS). It refers to the number of pictures
    displayed in 1 second in order to form continuous motions. The default
    frame rate is 15 fps (14.985 actually). You may choose 30fps (29.97
    actually) get more continuums motions. According to Sony PSP's
    specification, the hardware only supports the above two settings
    (14.985 and 29.97).
    When selecting 30fps, increase the movie quality and size a little bit.
    This is because more frames need some amount of additional motion data
    to be stored.

    of the file object in the source list. You'll be prompt with the
    following panel, you can drag the slider to set the start and end point
    freely, or type in the time manually, and then only the desired section
    of the DVDs will be converted.

    This software provides two encoder---- xVID & H.264. You can select any
    one according to your need. The same source video, xVid need less time
    to convert, but H.264 has better quality. You can check different
    conversion effect of this two formats by referring here.

    7. Audio Bit rate (in Kbits per second)
    Audio bit rate refers to how many data storage is allocated to store
    audio signals. The higher audio bit rate, the better audio quality.
    There are 4 audio quality modes to choose: 56kbps, 64kbps, 96Kbps,

    8.Audio Volume
    You can set a proper volumes of the export from the drop down list, the
    available ratio range is from 0% to 200%. Once 0% is selected, the
