Many of you will be aware that there are a lot of video converters available, both Free and Premium. I’ve worked with video a lot over the years and during that time have tried most video converters. I can attest from firsthand experience that WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is a top-notch video converter and unmatched in terms of versatility. The “Factory” in the title is very apt because WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is not just a quality video converter but more of a suite of video tools. Check out the following list of tools included in the one package:
- Video Conversion (of course): supporting 500 formats including mobile devices and all common formats
- Video Downloader: download videos, audio, and subtitles from more than 1000+ websites including YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Dailymotion, Itemfix, Vevo, SoundCloud, Yahoo, and Break. Save all videos from an entire channel or playlist from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, and more at once
- Video Editor: apply effects and filters (dozens to choose from). Merge, trim, crop, and rotate. Add watermark. Add hard-coded or soft-coded subtitles. Apply side-by-side effect (play two different videos side by side)
- Screen Recorder: record anything on the screen, including gameplay, video meeting, streaming video, video tutorial, etc. Custom Mode (record any part of the screen) and Full-Screen Mode. Including recording system audio or from a microphone, or both
- GIF Maker: Video to GIF (convert video files to animated GIF). Photo to GIF (combine a series of image files to create a dynamic GIF image)
- Ringtone Studio: Create custom ringtones for both iPhone and Android-based smartphones
And if that’s not enough to whet the appetite, the excellent video converter provides the following additional features:
- Upscale SD video to HD video
- Supports all resolutions up to and including 8K
- Batch Conversion
- Lightening Mode: super fast conversion mode
- Support Dolby Surround Sound
- Lossless Compression: create smaller files sizes while retaining original high quality
- Smart Fit: automatically sets the optimum output parameters based on the original file and output format
Pretty much all video conversion software claim to be the fastest so I put WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro through its paces to see just how fast it is. Because of its nature, video conversion (or re-encoding) can strain system resources and is often an inherently slow process. Now, let’s see how WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro performs in that department. For the purpose of this exercise I took a medium-quality AVI video with a runtime of 31 minutes and converted to high-quality H264 at default settings:
If you enlarge the above screenshot you’ll see that the conversion took a mere 32 seconds to complete. Truly remarkable speed and by far the fastest I’ve come across. NOTE: Conversion speeds can vary depending on the host machine’s hardware specs.
Unfortunately, because of file size limitations, I am unable to properly demonstrate the output quality. However, the output quality is superb, you’ll just have to take my word for it. I did take screenshots, before and after, and I think you’ll see a discernable improvement in quality after the conversion:
Smart Fit Explained
Wonderfox HD Video Converter Factory Pro’s “Smart Fit” feature takes all the guesswork out of achieving the best possible results. “Smart Fit” will automatically choose optimum settings based on the original file and chosen output format, making the conversion process a breeze for less experienced users. However, at the same time, there are plenty of options for more advanced users to select their own output parameters via a series of dropdown menus:
If you’re into video – whether it be converting, downloading, editing, or screen recording – WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is the software you shouldn’t be without. Highly recommended.
