HD Video Converter Factory is a tool that you can use to encode video clips to several formats in HD, including AVI, VOB, FLV, MOV, MKV and 3GP.
The interface of the program is clean and pretty intuitive. Video clips can be imported into the list by using the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is allowed.
In the queue you can check out the name, duration, size, output profile, estimated size and status of each video.
So, all you have to do is specify the output profile and destination, in order to initiate the encoding process.
In addition, you can change audio and video parameters when it comes to the resolution, encoder, aspect ratio, bit rate, frame rate, norm, channels, volume and sample frequency rate. Settings can be restored to their initial values or saved as default.
Furthermore, you can preview clips and take snapshots, view file information, set post-task actions (e.g. exit program, shut down computer) and the thread priority, specify the snapshot format and directory, as well as enable HD Video Converter Factory to play sound when the job is done and to automatically check for program updates online.
During the conversion task, you can preview the currnet clip and check out a current and total progress bar, along with elapsed and remaining time. But you can also make HD Video Converter Factory run in the background.
The video conversion tool requires a pretty high amount of system resources, includes a help file with snapshots and can take a while to complete a task (sometimes longer than the length of the video). It preserves a pretty good image and sound quality. No errors have occurred during our tests and HD Video Converter Factory did not freeze or crash. We strongly recommend this tool to all users.
