Change the format of videos by choosing from a number of options available with Prism Free Video Converter for Mac.

With the number of available formats and the speed of conversion as its main advantages, Prism Free Video Converter for Mac offers a useful and easy-to-use solution for those who need to easily change saved video files from one format to another.

During the installation this software tries to install a toolbar, which the user can easily prevent by unchecking the option. Prism Free Video Converter for Mac lacks advanced graphics but its main menu buttons are designed well enough to be useful. Users can manually add individual files or entire folders for batch processing via large top menu icons. In the same area, DVDs can be added and the conversion process, itself, can be initiated. The large main window shows a list of the files ready to be converted, and a bottom bar allows the user to select from a number of options. These include the output location and the type of format for conversion. The number of options for this are extensive, which is an advantage, and all of the major types are covered. Additionally, compression, quality, and size can be adjusted depending on the user's needs. An icon, which has an informative graphic, starts the conversion process, which completes as quickly as with other, competing programs.

For those looking to convert batches of video files to another format, Prism Free Video Converter for Mac's basic, but intuitive interface, and available formats make it a good choice.
