  1. I love the collection. I’ll need some time to find the best tool among these but they are great if you want to convert from one format to another.

  2. Format factory is really cool , using it from more than a year. I think You missed Audials as it is also one of the best video converter.

  3. Thanks!Always on the lookout for audio visual converters – I used to use TMPGenc for encoding video. I expect lots of flvs will need recoding as HTML5 and CSS3 becomes more popular
