Default settings: More or less, there would be one or few more of your preferred formats which you would like to convert your videos to. And of course, it can become a little irritating when you have to set up the formats again and again for each video you want to convert. DVDFab video converter takes minute details about the needs of its users and accordingly has provided you with a Default Setting feature with which the system will remember you preferred conversion settings thereby saving your precious time.
Even if you do not set a preferred format in Default option, Fab 9 converter still remembers the recent formats you have converted your videos to and you can easily select the format from there.
Preview Many time your videos would be long and might take hours for conversion specially when converting to 3D videos. In such case it is obvious that we would like to see how the conversion is happening to make sure that the resources of your system are being used to do something productive only. With preview option you are shown the frames of the video files so that you can get an idea of the video quality being rendered and decide if you really want to continue with the conversion.
Formats supported for conversion: The file formats supported for conversion are- 3GP File ( *.3gp; *3g2 ), ASF File ( *.asf ), AVI File ( *.avi; *.divx ), FLV File ( *.flv ), M2TS File ( *.m2ts ), MOV File ( *.mov ), MP4 File ( *.mp4; *.m4v ), MPEG File ( *.mpeg; *.mpg; *.dat ), MKV File ( *.mkv ), RMVB File ( *.rmvb; *.rm ), TS File ( *.ts ), VOB File ( *.vob ), WMV File ( *.wmv ).
Speed: We found the speed of conversion to be very fast. It took our movie of 2.30 hours on VOB format to be converted into .avi format just 20 minutes at a speed of 19.90 fps. DVDFab does this due to their support for batch conversion, ability to work with multi-core CPU and latest NVIDIA CUDA.

Review of DVDFab Video Converter
We spent a fair amount of time with this DVD converter and here is my overall review of this tool.
Pros: Support for NTSC and PAL, HD support up to 1080 pixels, 3D video conversion capability for new 3D screen devices, 5.1 multichannel audio support and an active R&D team which constantly updates the supported formats and devices in the software are some of the interesting features of DVDFab.
Cons: There are few limitations we found. They are, we cannot convert videos to VOB formats, take a lot of resources while 3D video conversion so can heat up the system. Price seems to be a bit expensive for a video converter, even though it is reasonable for the kind of features you get.
