On launching the program, you would want to head to the Video tab toward your left and select All to WMV.
Done with that, you would want to tweak the output settings by clicking on Output Settings. The default setting is 320 x 240. This setting is pretty standard which you could use for other mobile devices as well.
However, if you’ve other ideas like using Zune to play back video over your TV set, you can choose a higher setting. You can choose the High Quality option and pump up the resolution. Zune will allow you could go up to 720 x 480 at 30fps.
Once you’ve finalized your output video setting, you’re ready to import your source video to Format Factory.
You do this by using the Add File button. If you have a collection of video files in a folder to convert, you can use the Add Folder button. Once you’re done hit the OK button.
The next part is pretty straightforward if you’ve used any video converter program before.
You set your output directory. The default is My Documents – FF Output. If you have many videos in your My Documents directory, you can create a Zune folder and have all your converted videos gathered there. Click Apply and you’re all set for the conversion process.
Finally, you hit the Start button. You can monitor conversion progress from the middle of the program interface. When conversion is done, you’re ready to transfer your converted videos to Zune.
