What’s the best software for converting movies to a mobile format?

navin March 13, 2012

I want to convert movies to watch on mobile while computing. I want to be able to use MP4 format without much loss in quality. Can anyone recommend software for this?

I’ve tried Format Factory but it doesn’t seem to work.

    I love DVDfab, while it isn't free it is reasonable prices and works great. It is simple to use and their support is excellent.

    I still prefer Format Factory, although there are many nice programs: XMedia Recode, Handbrake, Freemake Video Converter, VidCoder (version of Handbrake with "target size" function ;) )

        I'm using FormatFactory right now; it does his job very well.
        Did you follow help file directions? What does "it doesn't work properly" mean?

          hi manide
          it repeatedly shows task failed for no reason
          i don't know what is wrong but the conversion is not completed every time..

          Ops! I've never met this issue...
          If I were you, I would unistall, clean registry, reinstall FormatFactory and give it one more try. If fails again, you may consider another option; 'Handbrake' maybe...

    Hello, you could also try the following software, it already comes with profiles for mobile:

    Any video converter:

    Media coder:

    Of course if you do not mind spending some money you could use DVDFab:
