  • I was happy that I had decided to test it before I went on the trip, at first I thought I got sold a bad player, but while looking threw the instructions I noticed it said that the player only plays movies that were MPEG, but all of my movies were encoded using DIVX, so now I had about a week before the trip to figure out how to re-encode my movies to mpeg's

      Some friends of mine had invited me to come to San Diego to stay with them for the weekend, I was excited to go cause I have not seen them in a while, so I wanted to get down there quick, but I didn’t want the hassle of flying and I surely didn’t want to take a long cramped bus ride from Illinois to California, so I guess it would have to be the train, but even that would take at lease a few days, but I was willing to do it, but I knew I would need lots of entertainment along the way.

      My friends don’t have Internet access believe it or not, and I know they don’t offer it on the train, so I decided taking my laptop would be a waste of time. But I still needed something to occupy my time on this long trip. I remembered some time ago I bought something called a portable media player off of ebay,It was used and kind of out-dated and It was one


      of those things that I thought I really needed at the time, but I never used it, so I figured I would get it out from under the bed and fire it up, seemed like this was just what the doctor ordered.

      I have quite a few movies on my computer so I decided to transfer all of them to this media player, it was pretty easy to do, but as soon as I got it all transferred, the files would not play. I was happy that I had decided to test it before I went on the trip, at first I thought I got sold a bad player, but while looking threw the instructions I noticed it said that the player only plays movies that were MPEG, but all of my movies were encoded using DIVX, so now I had about a week before the trip to figure out how to re-encode my movies to mpeg’s.

      I went online and found a software program that could do this, it was called The AVS Video converter, according to the website, seemed like this program is all I needed to convert my movies, but this program cost about 50 bucks, so I had to think, do I want to spend 50 bucks for something I will probably never use again? And after a couple days of thinking about it, I decided not to do it, but I still had to convert my files, so this time I typed into the search engine that I wanted a FREE video converter, and that’s when I found the format factory website.http://www.formatoz.com/

      Format Factory is a 100 percent free video converter, that will convert videos, music even pictures of any size and format to whatever you want, according to the website anyway, so I decided to download it and give it a try. The first thing I noticed is that the program is very light weight, it was only 40.7 MB So it downloaded in no time. Installation was also super fast and very smooth, I had no problems what so ever downloading and installing this ...

      program.

      But it was still hard for me to believe that this program was going to be able to do all that it claimed, remember I almost bought a similar program for 50 bucks, how could this one even come close for free. But it did, this little program is amazing, it does what it says it does and it does it very well. I really like how the interface is set up, very simple, in fact, if you never did any type of converting, you would have no problems figuring this out. The program is even available in 60 different languages so everybody all over the world can use this simple program.

      One thing I really like about Format Factory is that it does something called batch conversion, meaning I was able to put all of my movies into it and it converted all of them one at a time, automatically, this is a really cool feature, because while it was converting, I was able to work on other things on the same computer. Format

      factory runs quietly in the background, and takes up very few resources, so your computer never slows down while using it.

      Format factory converted all of my files perfectly, and all of my movies still looked very good, now there are advanced controls in this program too, for tweaking video resolution, size and other things, so if you are really into quality, you can get even better results with Format factory. For me, using the default settings was just fine. I also re-encoded some music and pictures, just for the heck of it, and everything came out looking and sounding great. I did however put a corrupted file into format factory to see if it would fix it, but it didn’t, but then again that is not what it’s for, it simply does one thing, converts files, and it does this easily and efficiently.

      I really could not find anything to complain about with this software, it is simply the best free video converter in the world and I highly recommend it for all of your conversion needs
