If it’s a video convertor you’re looking for, this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review can probably help. Being a Videophile, we do know the importance of converting videos from one format to another and the hardships associated with the same.
While converting videos lets us play the same video on multiple devices, it often results in lower quality outputs. At times our systems just hang up and freeze during the conversion process. And most commonly, the convertors need ages for the output.
Also, most convertors are limited to “converting videos”. Well, we may need a video-editor or a video downloader as well, right?
These are just some of the problems we aim to address and hopefully solve by the end of this HD Video Convertor Factory Pro review.
Now we’ve been with quite a few video convertors and editors so far, so when we get our hands on a new convertor we unconsciously and automatically get a “comparative” stance to it. Is it better than the other convertor we reviewed? If so, how?

HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review
Well here are the primary factors which interested us the most about this convertor:
- Hyper threading and Hardware Acceleration Supported.
- Upsizing and Downsizing videos.
- 5x Compression rates! (As much as 80%).
- Inbuilt Video Editor.
- InBuilt all-in-one Video Downloader.
- 300+ Conversion Formats.

Although do note that we aren’t going to say if this is the ultimate best video convertor out there, or not. That’s a decision you educated folks have to make. We’d be covering all the features that the tool provides in utmost details and transparency and then leave you to the decision.
HD Video Converter Factory Pro User Interface
By User Interface, we mean the “ease of using the tool”. It’s important because we’ve been with extremely feature-rich tools which were hard to work around and hence resulted in an overall unpleasant experience.
Well, HD Video Converter Factory Pro markets itself as a tool which is “easy to navigate for all levels”. Let’s see how true that is?
The primary dashboard is colourful. But more importantly neatly organized. For e.g. the primary features of the tool are divided into:
- And Toolbox.
And then there are the respective tools, namely Convertor, Downloader, Recorder, and Gif Maker. Even a first-timer can pretty easily spot the exact tool he/she is looking for, and then go for it.
There also is the Top-bar which can be used to access all the important functions and sections of the program (apart from the primary features).
So far, I guess you’d agree it’s pretty newbie-friendly. No rocket-science required to understand what’s displayed or how to use it.
Hyper Threading and Hardware Acceleration Supported
Almost everything that the program does is effected by this feature. Hence it’s being discussed here in this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review.
What’s the primary problem with most other video convertors? Slower Speeds and a laggy system which at times even results in complete freezing of the computer. That’s what this feature solves.
This convertor supports Hyper-threading, which means it’s capable of utilizing a single microprocessor, as two separate processors. This results in two separate yet simultaneous instruction-threads for the CPU.
In laymen’s terms, the CPU can get more tasks done, in a relatively shorter period of time.
Then there’s the Hardware Acceleration. While most other convertors simply use the CPU (software) to get the job done. HD Video Converter Factory Pro makes use of the GPU (hardware) as well.
The GPU is the “Graphics Processing Unit” of a system. Using the GPU ensures that there’s lesser load on the CPU which results in a smooth, no-lag conversion process.
Hardware acceleration also decreases the overall conversion time multiple folds. Here’s an image which should explain the difference between a CPU-only video conversion, and a Hardware-accelerated video conversion process.
The GPU-god keeps giving, with hardware acceleration even low-end computers can convert videos at faster speeds, without lags (or lesser lags).
Let’s discuss some direct features in this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review then?
300+ Formats and In-Built Profiles
Obviously the primary job a video-convertor does is, convert videos. Hence the number of formats it supports is of prime importance, isn’t it?
This in my personal experience is one of the most format-rich convertors quantitatively.
The platform not only supports over 300+ formats, but has neatly categorized pre-built profiles as well. Here’s what the format-selection screen looks like:
Users can first choose if they wish to convert their media into a standard video, 4K/HD video, a web-supported format, and/or an audio format. This eliminates common web-media errors such as “file-size not supported”, “video can’t be uploaded” etc.
Then there’s also the choice of multiple brands, including Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Amazon, Honor, OnePlus, Mi, Asus, Motorola and so on. Furthermore, each brand has a number of devices and models specified as well.
This makes format-selection extremely easy. Even the most basic user, without any prior knowledge of formats or video-conversions can find an appropriate format.
Just some of the available formats are:
- XVID etc.
The tool supports not just Mobile phones, but also TVs, Projectors, PlayStation(s), and home-theatres.
Formats best and most suitable for the Web as well as for social media (Facebook, Vimeo, Youtube etc).too are pre-profiled.
Also note that the convertor supports the most recent H265 (HEVC) encoders. This in the simplest language means, converting videos to and from 4K/HD qualities is possible, without compromising on the video quality.
This in turn makes uploading, streaming, sharing and transferring such high-quality videos comparatively faster.
Downsize Videos without Losing Quality
This is another one of the platform’s features which warrants a mention in this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review.
While with most other programs even when the resolution is lowered ,the file-size doesn’t come down much. This tool is capable of lowering video-file “sizes”, without actually lowering the quality.
There’s this Smart-Fit feature which auto-defines the best format for each video output. The resulting output hence is of a lower file-size, but of the same quality as the original video.
Upgrading Video Quality
This is arguably the most exclusive and unique feature I’ve ever encountered with a Video convertor. How many convertors do you know which let us not just change the format, but “increase” the quality of a video?
Well, HD Video Converter Factory Pro features these two unique options in its Settings panel:
Enabling them makes sure the lower-quality videos when converted to higher-quality formats (4K/HD) aren’t blurry and blown up. So unlike other convertors which only change the “format”, this tool actually makes the videos better in quality.
That’s because the converter is capable of filling in lost pixels with similar pixels around it. Hence the blurry videos are now actually sharper videos because there are no blown up pixels.
So 420p videos can be converted to 720p (or higher), the same holds true for 1080p videos being converted to 2K/4K and so on.
An added cherry on the top is, while higher-resolution is generally associated with higher file-sizes, that’s not the case here.
Instead, the obtained file-sizes are actually lower than the source file in most cases. In the following screenshot, I’m converting a MP4 (mobile-recorded) video into HD MKV, with a much higher resolution. Yet the file size is nearly 25% less than the source!
Titbit: The company was actually invited by Intel because of their breakthrough research into Standard-to-High quality video conversions.
Batch Conversions (MultiTasking)
Most computers today support multitasking, most converters may not. Fortunately, HD Video Converter does.
It allows users to add multiple videos at once. This can either be done using its Drag&Drop interface; or using the in-built “Add Video Folder” option.
Anyway, this lets us convert as many as 10 videos at once!
As mentioned earlier in this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review, the program also features an in-built downloader. It lets users download 1080p Youtube Videos.
And not just Youtube, videos from almost any and all video-sharing sites out there can be downloaded, absolutely free. Just some of the supported platforms are:
- Dailymotion etc.
While there are individual video-downloader tools out there, most of them aren’t free. And some even cost a fortune. Well with this video converter, the feature is absolutely free of charge.
Downloading videos is as easy as can be. Simply copy the video-URL from the screen where it’s being played, and paste it onto the downloader.
It takes a couple seconds for the video to be analyzed, and then users get to customize the video-properties. The Format, resolution as well as the desired size can be selected before downloading the file.
That’s not all, the tool can also be used as a “audio extractor” directly from online videos! Meaning, videos can be downloaded as “audio-only” files as well. This would eliminate the need of converting them to audio formats later, best for downloading songs.
As you may have guessed throughout this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review, the tool leaves no stones unturned. Hence, it also embedded a “subtitle downloader” with its video downloader, so no you aren’t missing the captions.
In-Built Gif Maker
In addition to the Video converter, and the video-downloader; the tool also features an in-built Gif maker.
And not just the format, but actual animated Gif(s) can be created. Gif images are basically moving photos, or photos with multiple frames in them as you may already know.
It lets users convert any video into a Gif, hence users can easily convert WebM to Gif among many other supported formats.
These Gif images can be created either from a video, or by joining multiple static photos. The quality, as well as the time-delay for each gif can be manually selected.
The company made sure that along with a converter, many other video-needs of a user get solved. The “ToolBox” feature is what we’ll discuss in this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review section.
Clicking on the “Toolbox” takes users to the following screen:
As is evident, it offers a number of tools which are:
- Photo to Video Maker.
- Split Screen Video Maker.
- Ringtone Studio
- And Subtitle Extractor.
“Photo to Video Maker” lets users join multiple photos and create a video. The “Split Screen Video Maker” is a kind of collage-video-make. Just like collage photos, collage videos split into multiple screens can be created.
Then there’s the “Ringtone Studio” which can be used to create Ringtones for Android, as well as iOS devices.
And finally the Subtitle Extractor can be used to extract subtitles from a video. Although note the tool also offers a feature which lets users create and add subtitles to a video.
The features are overwhelming, but is it pocket-friendly? Well it has three primary pricing-plans:
- 1 Year Plan-1PC: USD $29.95
- Lifetime- 1PC: USD $34.95.
- Lifetime- 3 PCs: USD $59.95
It also offers 30-day moneyback guarantee, and accepts a plethora of payment options!

Final Verdict- HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review
So let’s wrap this HD Video Converter Factory Pro Review up? If you ask me for a final verdict, I’d say I’m impressed.
I mean is there a reason “not” to be? It ticks all the boxes. Hardware Acceleration, Hyper Threading, Multiple formats, easy to use interface, downloader, gif-maker and what not!
Comparatively speaking, I don’t suppose there exists a feature with other similar tools which Factory pro lacks.
