Format Factory Review

Felix Cheng

Multi-format media conversion application


A review of Format Factory by

Format Factory is a freeware and fully-featured media converter which can convert between a slew of different audio and video formats with a speciality on converting between formats for mobile devices. Such mobile devices currently supported by Format Factory include Android phones, the PSP PlayStation Portable, the PlayStation Vita and the line of Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

With regards to the interface of Format Factory, usage is as simple as can be. You're able to get the conversion job done quickly and easily without the need for much technical knowledge. The interface could be better, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty simple.

Some of the file formats Format Factory can handle are WMV, AVI, WMA, AAC, JPG and PNG among some others which you can find in the interface.

While the market for media converters on the Internet is saturated, this particular one is a bit more unique being that it can handle audio, video *and* image formats and that it is also geared towards the mobile user.

Format Factory can also take two separate audio files produced by your phone and join them into one file.

Overall, the program does a lot for a freeware application and you can't always have it all. Seeing that this is geared towards mobile users, we weren't really expecting it to be able to convert high definition formats.

Format Factory can convert video formats and edit subtitle files.

Format Factory features and highlights:
  • Converts between many video, audio, picture formats
