I have just purchased a YP-P3 from Australia, for use here in New Zealand (can't find them for sale here !!)
I use Linux almost exclusively, and found these two links very helpful:

I have used these commands to convert any video file that plays on the P3.

First, install lsdvd:
sudo apt-get install lsdvd

To get information about titles on the DVD:
lsdvd /dev/dvd

Use lsdvd again to gather additional information about video properties of this specific title, in this case title 1:
lsdvd -v -t 1 /dev/dvd

Use mplayer to play this title, in this case title 1, and verify it’s the one you want.
mplayer dvd://1

Then rip your title straight from the DVD:
mencoder -oac mp3lame -lameopts mode=3reset=24 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vbitrate=384:keyint=250 -vf expand="400:272" -o outputfile.avi dvd://'your title number'

Of course, instead of ripping straight from a dvd, substitute your file name for 'dvd://'your title number'
