Prism Video File Converter Free is a capable, easy-to-use tool that can convert videos between most formats, including some uncommon ones, one by one or in batches. A clean, efficient user interface avoids the garish backgrounds and "styling" common to freeware video converters. Recent updates include FLV encoding and preview conversion output.
Device-specific: Prism's long Output format menu supports many specific devices as well as more than 30 file types, including less-common but increasingly popular formats like MKV and OGG, and even WAV and MP3 audio files.
Pop-up settings: Instead of burying important options in a nest of menus, specific options for each file format open directly from the compact, uncluttered interface.
DVD rips: Prism can extract and convert files directly from DVDs.
Fast: Conversion speed will depend on factors like file type and length and available system resources, of course. But Prism powered through videos, converting them at the highest quality settings at a rate that shamed many similar tools.
Marketing on the toolbar: Upgrade, Share, and Suite buttons on the toolbar take up a lot of space yet do nothing for the tool's performance or the toolbar's appearance.
Prism Video File Converter Free is a step up from YouTube-only converters and their derivatives, yet it's just as easy to use -- even easier in some cases.
