There’s a piece of software I am very happy with, no excited about. After trying to have some .FLV files converted into .AVI that I could watch on my home theater system, I was beginning to lose hope about it’s possibility.

Tried the very popular Any Video Converter and a host of others both paid and free but was hitting a road block with errors and every imaginable excuse was given to me by these less than stellar programs until I stumbled upon Format Factory.

Oh, what a well crafted piece of software! And the amazing thing is that is a Freeware – yes, you pay not a dime to use it amazing powers to fulfill your media fantasies.
