FormatFactory Editor's Review

Media file format conversion can be a rather complicated task but there are software products in the market that can make the execution of such a task a whole lot easier. Many of those tools are either paid or do not provide enough functionality. Generally, users require software programs which can perform all required tasks without paying a lot of money, and of course, with ease. Format Factory is an ‘all in one’ media file format converter that is a little more than just a converter. Let’s take a deep look into its offerings.

‘Format Factory’ software application can be used in the Windows operating systems starting from XP to the newest Windows 8. Although, this product is supported by ads, installing it really isn’t troublesome. It gets installed quite quickly and does not require much of user intervention.

Almost all media formats including picture formats, audio formats and video formats can be converted into other different formats when one has this software product in his or her computer. The time that is taken for the conversion to be carried out depends largely on the type of file which is being converted and to the kind of file it is being converted to. For instance the MP3 to MPG file conversions do not take long and can transpire within ten minutes at the most. The conversion from DVD to video files however is one that is rather time consuming and can take several hours. However, when compared the time taken with some of the major players in the market, it does take slightly higher time, but it is justified by its freeware tag.

This software features a pretty basic yet easy to use interface. It comes preinstalled with four themes and user can decide and apply the theme which suits him or her best. All the major features of the product are just a click or two away from being utilized. Even lesser required features are also easily accessible.

The ‘Format Factory’ supports many devices including well known iPad and iPhone. All media formats supported by them are also well supported by it. Lower quality video resolutions, used in older phones including .3GP are also supported.Along with Photo format conversion, it also supports some nice editing options such as Flip, Rotate and the Zoom tags. ‘Format Factory’ is also one that is characterized by what is known as a DVD ripper. This software product is available in as many as sixty two different languages. In addition to that, support for more languages is being added on regular basis.

You can engage in the task of repairing damaged video and audio files as well with the help of this product. The sizes of multimedia files are also those that can be reduced with the help of the format factory software product. Indeed the format factory software product is one that cannot operate in an efficient manner if a computer speed is too slow. Ensuring ahigh computer speed is therefore quite necessary when using this product. It requires just around 25 MBs of memory while idle, but it considerably jumps up while conversion is in process. However, resource usage is not something to be considered alarming.

Positive Points:
 -    Quick to get installed and it is portable.
 -    Easy to use interface with many visual options.
 -    Supports many media formats and devices.
 -    Good support for many languages.

Negative Points:
 -     A little slow in converting files as compared to some paid ones.
 -    Takes some amount of resources while conversion is in process.

Format Factory is a free media conversion tool that is more than just a converter, it is able to convert and edit both. User is able to convert with ease, with a little extra time though. It supports many languages so most probably users can use it in their native language. It does take up some resources while conversion, but that is expected of every conversion tool. Overall, it is quite a useful software application that users can go ahead and utilize in order to engage in the conversion of media files of various kinds.
