Format Factory is great. It is easy to use and light on your computer system.

The automatic options are alright for people who don't know the program yet or want something quick. Once the program becomes familiar it is recommended that the options and details are used to get the most out of this product.

Sometimes different codecs don't work or there can be problems with various things such as interlaced and progressive video or different types of audio files. So try different codecs, options and file types.

This program is one of the ones used as back-up when an actual audio or video editor cannot do the job or a different file type is needed.

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.
