NEW VERSION 1.2.2

Visual MP4/MOV Time Stamp (vMTS) is a tool to add date and/or time stamp to the captured MP4/MOV/video files. The MP4/MOV video files have the time codes embedded in the files, such time codes are stored in the video files when they are recorded. But the time codes are not visible when you view the MP4/MOV files. When you use video edit tools to convert the MP4/MOV files to other files, the time codes get lost. By using vMTS, the time codes are extracted from the MP4/MOV files and superimposed onto the videos. This way the date/time will be visible when you view the stamped file, consequently other files made out of the stamped files will have date/time displayed. MP4/MOV format is used by iPhone, GoPro camcorders, and digital cameras made by Canon, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic, etc. Such video files have 'mp4' or 'MOV' file extension. Full description.

This used to be an excellent tool.

I recently downloaded a copy for a new computer and the Iminent toolbar was an install option.
I definitely chose to NOT install this option.
It did it anyway AND it installed an Iminent add-on to my browser (Fire Fox).

I followed several suggested methods to remove it but they all failed.
I can find no program that claims to block it's installation or even claim to remove it.
I tried several of the most popular malware removers and some tried but failed.
Iminent even blocks you from starting some of these programs.

It made such a mess of my computer that I finally formatted the HD and re-installed Win7.

Except for that it's a great program.

Do not use 2.95 this version has a bug that wants to not use your preferred codec in favor of DirectVobSub stick with 2.9 or lower if you haven't upgraded.

Good Morning, First I would like to commend the great tool that is Format Factory, I am more than a frequent user, I am a big fan and promoter of the tool. But I think some things could make the tool even more excellent. The first would be for Format Factory to convert batch files, you can recreate the original folder structure, for example, if I select a root folder with 5 subpatas and other subfolders within these subfolders, when requesting the conversion of the entire contents of this root folder, Format Factory would recreate the folders on the target and asked to play the converted files within those folders, and this would be a user option, he can choose whether or not to recreate the folders. Another suggestion would be for Format Factory to convert files of type Dual Audio, keeping the two audios, and finally, it is possible to extract the subtitles when ripping DVD's and has the option to rip DVD's into a single file, while maintaining the option to rip a video file into multiple files, one per track. Thank you.

Well, I did make a conversion with AC3 & when it finished there was still no sound, but when I checked it with Media Info it did indicate that there was indeed AC3 audio. I then made a direct copy with Avidemux & there was the missing sound. The problem is that the sound is NOT centered. It is skued to the left. Very annoying. I know it's not my system because I have other AVI's with AC3 6 channel audio tracks that sound perfectly fine.

Love this converter...BUT... when I try to convert to AVI with AC3 6 channel sound I get no sound when I monitor the sound while converting, so I don't know if it is actually converting any sound at all. Has anyone else experienced this problem?. By the way I'm converting an MKV. If I select MP3 sound I can hear it while converting, but not AC3.

FF installed its own codecs in its own subfolders, stomping all over my existing codecs without any warning. Uninstall removed the program, but did not restore my previous codec settings.
Took me hours to get my codecs back to a functional state.

It looks like it is a simply a GUI for a lot of freeware tools, which is fine, but the brutal codec hijack is completely unacceptable.

This is a good tool. I am using version 2.00. I've used it to convert a collection of .mkv videos to dvd format vob files. I later imported them to tmpgenc dvd author 2 with no compatiblity issues. I am now converting some avi files for dvd creation with it as well. It is quick and more importantly streamlined with relatively straightforward descriptions of the tools it uses. I definitely recommend adding this to your video encoding arsenal and the price is right!

Had been looking EVERYWHERE for something that could take subbed MKV files and turn them into iPhone friendly MP4 files on a Win 7 x64 platform. Many tools would die on my setup having more than 4GB of RAM. Others had to have the subs extracted first, and even then had "strangeness" when running.

This is the one tool that so far has allowed me to convert files without any extra legwork up front, and does a half-hour video in less than 5 minutes. I certainly agree that it is missing some advanced functions that you might need for certain video sources. But for what I have to work with, it has so far (knock on wood) been the ideal tool.

Format Factory has an user friendly GUI and you change skins, you can make custom templates and batch encode.
As an audio converter v2.15 is very customizable and fast, you can convert just about any format and for that I give it a 10.
As a video converter it's fast but not very customizable, you cannot select CBR or field order. It does however keep the proper AR when converting odd resolutions(eg 704x360 -> 720x480).
As freeware it's worth a try and I hope the author(s) keep improving it.

Very pretty interface that should sit well with the WinAVI type crowd. It covers a lot of formats, from video to still image to audio, and has a lot of presets. It is also reasonably fast, even with H264 encoding. However the proof is in the pudding, as they say, and in this case, the pudding turned out rather poorly. Conversion of a ripped Video_TS folder to a H.264 encoded MP4 took only 30 minutes on a Quad Core 6600, however the deinterlacing option did not produce a properly deinterlaced video, but a field stacked output file. Absolutely useless.

I am sure this program does some thing very well, and the interface is reasonably beginner friendly (more advanced users will probably find it frustrating and restrictive), but having failed something so basic, I cannot recommend this version.

off to uninstall . . . . .

This little program is quite multi-functional. It is especially useful for conversions into portable device formats: mobile phones and PMPs. What makes this also valuable is the fact, that it seems to be pretty safe unlike some other converters (eg. Super). It can also take care of multi-audio and external subs encoding. This is one of the most effective freeware converters.

- Although it support .avs files cannot read the length of the file referred in the script like XMedia Recode does.
- The slider to move/navigate through the video in the preview/edit windows doesn't work if the video is loaded via an avs file.
- Still miss all the basic features that I mentioned above.

Although it's free/adware (that's how softpedia classify it) there are better alternatives. Xmedia Recode or Automen are quite superior for video conversion and foobar can do whatever this program claim to do with audio and can do it better.

Regarding to the author, yep, is a "little reluctant" to listen the users. Really a pity because a couple of versions ago this program seemed promising.

If not for one problem -- inability to enforce non-stretched aspect ratio when working with random wide-format video sources -- I would give a triple-10 to version 1.85.

If not for the fact that they REMOVED the WMV1 encoding NEEDED by the Zune 30, I'd give a triple-9 to version 1.90 -- and higher, if the aspect ratio issue had been resolved, which I do not know.

If not for the fact that in addition to NOT restoring the senselessly removed WMV1 encoding -- and then compounded matters by including a broken edition of FFmpeg that causes CONSTANT "COM Surrogate has stopped working" errors (when running programs, and even when simply trying to drag/drop files from one dir to another via the Windows shell), I would NOT have UNINSTALLED this beast.

And, if they'd bothered to respond to any of my POLITE emails to the support addresses they post on their site, I'd be a little less disgusted than I am tonight, after spending a LONG time downloading (in a region that ONLY has dialup modem access) the large update, and then figuring out HOW it managed to break my OS.

Argh...

I hope they stop "improving" this program just long enough to FIX what they BROKE. I would like to be able to start using it again. I'll probably re-install 1.85, and try to find some other program to deal with the aspect ratio stuff, but really, this is too sad -- to take a perfectly good app, and then break it -- and then, instead of fixing it, to break the OS too?

To avoid the ebay etc plugin garbage being installed, Just unzip the installer into a directory and run from there.
Apart from that its great freeware.

And you paid how much for it?... I started using it for several conversions, mainly MP4 to AVI with great success. It's like any conversion tool. Learn what it does & doesn't do & use it's best features. Up till this my favorite was SUPER@, but now this one is. I think it's super, and the one feature that has SUPER@ beat is it will shut down the computer after a conversion. Any conversion I've done so far has looked as good as the original, and it's fairly fast. That's good enough for me.

Still very basic,

- No crop & deinterlace
- No filtering
- Lack of profiles for Xvid and h264 conversion (like in Automen)
- No access to all codec settings
- Cannot detect the length of a video imported through avisynth
- No direct stream copy for audio & video compatible with output containers
- No preset for mp3 vbr, neither allow to input parameters (like in foobar)

The mov convertion works fine, you just need to install the proper codecs or use KMplayer.

Converted mpg to mov and no video-just sound. Not too good. Similar problems with other conversions.
