HD Video Converter Factory Pro 17.1reviewed by Tony Hill on 4/5
If you need a tool to perform quick conversion and editing of video and audio files, then look no further because HD Video Converter Factory Pro can cover all your needs. The tool allows converting and merging of video and audio files, downloading of videos from online sources, and more.
This tool is otherwise not free, as it costs around $35 with a discount for a lifetime license on a single PC. The good thing is that discounts are being offered frequently on the developers website. The unregistered version comes with conversion and downloading limitations, and does not include upgrades and technical support.
The interface is otherwise quite transparent, with buttons like Add Files and Download Videos located at the top bar where there is also button to Upload files via FTP. The software supports batch conversion, as well as multi-core CPU processing with option to set CPU priority and also to enable GPU acceleration from the Options window.
The process of video and audio conversion is otherwise quite straightforward. The first thing you need to do is select the media files from local disk or online source, which adds them to the queue. Added files can be merged or processed in batches. Next you must choose the output format and you can also set some other settings for the output files like Encoder, Bit Rate and Aspect Ratio.
One thing HD Video Converter Factory Pro can brag about is the sheer number of Output formats it supports. The selection includes various video, audio, web and 4K/HD formats, and also formats that are specific for devices like Apple's iPhone, Samsung devices or Google devices.
Before you finally hit the Run button to process the queue, you can also set the compression ratio, Add subtitles or Rename the output files, as well as Clip both video and audio files, and Crop or Apply various effects to videos files. Every file in the queue also shows various details like format, duration, and similar.
