FormatFactory: probably the best free media conversion software


https://i2.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/16/FormatFactory.png

A few months ago, while scanning through downloads at CNET Download.com, I found a program called FormatFactory. Not only can it convert all major video and audio formats (plus a few I had never heard of), but it can also rip video off of DVDs and convert it into any format of video, including iPod-ready MP4. (The DVDs I used were ones of TV shows and movies that I had recorded myself. I haven’t tried using it on encrypted DVDs).

One of the main features I like about FormatFactory is that you can take 3GP video, which is the output format of video taken on cheap camera phones like the discontinued Motorola Razr (ugh–worst phone ever made), and converting the corrupt and OS-biased WMV files from Windows Movie Maker into more universally accepted AVI files that will actually play without your media player crashing (LOL).

FormatFactory is available at Formatoz.com. Don’t worry about the red McAfee SiteAdvisor rating; that’s just there because the site links to tamindir.com, which distributes trojans. The software is 100% safe.
