About a year ago I went looking for a complete list of UMDs. I found one which had, I think, all releases worldwide. For the life of me I can't find the list now. I think there was somewhere between 1,200-2,000 UMD Videos.

This guy has 970 English language releases.


I personally have around 100. I know you can get a composite or component output for the 2000 and 3000 series PSPs as that is what I use to watch mine. My friend has several docks as well as one that you would install in a car with a screen that mounts on the headrest. All aftermarket I believe.

Now correct me if I'm wrong as I've never done this before, but I think you can also wirelessly connect a PSP to a PS3 kind of like screen sharing.

Spending ~$100 for a player set up plus $5+ per movie for a format with less than desirable resolution in this day and age doesn't seem so far fetched for this forum or its members.

I only own 19 UMD videos. I could see why some people in the comments of that video are expressing jealousy.

Made a video about UMD a while ego. I like the format and from time to time get new titles.

Here is the proper way to watch it on a big screen:

Still considering buying a PSP to mod, but I love the idea that it also has UMD Movies/Shows that I can buy for it, so of course it'd make a great addition to LDDB

I think you should add it. I collect them and have quite a few titles because I find them kinda neat...only wish Sony had produced a dedicated UMD home player or deck... :(

I think it's pretty crazy that they actually released TV shows on this format. You can even get the original Aeon Flux on UMD, shorts and all!

I use to own the UMD Aeon Flux series release. They packed the whole of it onto two UMDs.

I say yes to UMDs being added. I have quite a few. Of course I'd also like to see added:

Blu-ray (after all, HD-DVD is in the database)
DVD
UHD (4K)
VCD

The DB would grow to 100 times it’s current size. You know this is a one man operation, right?

No problem!

I'm sending you my bank account information for the $1M deposit so I can rent an office and hire people to help me with that ;-)
