Huge Variety of Formats

Format Factory supports a wide variety of formats including audio, video and images.

Video and Audio Settings

Format Factory lets you configure encoding settings. Output settings are mainly divided into three categories; low, medium and high-quality output. You can further customize the output settings. These are advanced settings and you should play with care.

These are divided into video and audio settings separately. Video stream settings include parameters such as video encode type, video size (in pixels), bitrate (in KBs), frames per second, aspect ratio and encode to pass. Audio stream settings consist of audio encode type, audio output sample rate, bitrate (in KBs), audio channel, enable/disable audio, volume control and stream index.

Custom Subtitles

Subtitles can be added by importing subtitles files, type, font size (according to video size) and stream index.

Image Watermark

You can add image watermarks to video files by defining an image, watermark position and margins. It is a nice feature if you want to add copyright marks or company logo to those videos that you recorded yourself. Watermark helps you protect your effort from unauthorized use of somebody else with their name.

Advanced Options

There are further advanced settings that you can use to rotate, mirror and de-interlace the video files. These options allow you to adjust the output video in a more personalized form.

Command-Line Supported

Format Factory also supports command-line. You can use command-line to convert files if you find it suitable.

Multilanguage Support

At the moment, Format Factory supports about 60 different languages.

Format Factory Extra Components (New update)

The Format factory is no more just a standalone media converter application, but a pack of media solution covering record, convert and play your media.

A new media player

Surprisingly, I installed Format Factory after a long time and it was pleasant to see the new interface. The latest version has some extra components which I discovered when I found Format Player in open with the menu of a video file.

At first, I thought that this is due to the new update of Windows 10, Microsoft has also introduced a new media player. But then I realized that Microsoft didn’t say anything about this player at all.

The name of the media player was “format player”، surprisingly. However, its visual style was very similar to the original media player of Windows 10. I thought there must be something confusing.

I started to find out where this unique video player came from. As soon as I typed the “format player” in the Windows search bar, it appeared in the group of format factory. For a moment I found myself stunned and amazed.

I have been taking this format factory program so lightly. I think it was just a great but free software for video converting, and nothing more. But my amazement was still growing because a new discovery was on the way.

An exciting screen recorder

When I find out the program location in the Start menu to confirm that the format player is really offered by the format factory, I see that there is another program besides these two which is a desktop video capture and Made for recording.

I quickly opened this screen recording program and it was a very professional level screen recording software. It contained everything that is available in a state-of-the-art screen recording software, such as Camtasia screen recorder.

Format Factory is no longer just a video converter but also provides everything from desktop video recording to video converting and ultimately a video player.

You do not have to work hard to get these new components and you do not have to download anything separately. You just need to download the format factory installer, all these components will install on your computer automatically.
