Format Factory – Free Video and Audio Convertor

Format Factory

Converting video formats is one of the banes of the digital home.  Transcoding video files to .mp4 format (H.264) to work on the unmolested Apple TV for example can be a royal pain.  Mac users have long had the solution in VisualHub (although sadly no longer in development).  In a recent  episode of the Windows Weekly podcast there was a recommendation for “FormatFactory” and after some playing with this free app, it does indeed appear to be the windows tool I’ve been looking for.

“FormatFactory is a multifunctional media converter. Provides functions below:

  1. see GeekBrief TV 464 mentioned AH in connection with this ..

  2. It seems something happened to the Format Factory’s website. Was it too good to be true? Did their domain expire? It was up a few days ago but is not today. Do you know what happened? Do you have another video conversion recommendation?
