The variety of formats for pictures, music, audio and video is large. Besides the well-known formats like MP3, MPEG and Flash there are many more. This is why it can quickly happen that you record or download something on one device or with software, which then cannot be played on another. Remedy creates a converter such as Format Factory from Free Time for Microsoft Windows.
Especially with mobile devices, support for certain formats is poor. This includes, for example, the Flash format, which is not supported by Apple devices such as the iPhone and iPad. Also under Android the support is hardly given anymore. The Adobe Flash Player for Android was last updated in 2013 and is no longer recommended.
Therefore, it is necessary to convert Flash videos with a Video Converter, which Format Factory does. Besides the Flash formats FLV and SWF, the freeware supports videos in MP4, 3GP, MPG, AVI and WMV format as well as music and audio files in MP3, WMA, AMR, OGG, AAC and WAV format. This is supplemented by the image formats JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF, ICO, GIF as well as TGA and the format support for the mobile devices of Blackberry and Apple as well as the game console PSP of Sony.
Working with media and files
Format Factory can handle not only files, but also DVDs and CDs, and offers an integrated DVD and Audio CD ripper for non-copy-protected DVDs and music CDs. The software also supports RealMediaVB, watermarks and Video-Mux.
Small tasks in image processing can be done directly with Format Factory. This includes zooming, mirroring and rotating images. The converter also compresses audio files and repairs damaged files.
