Prism Free Video File Converter

Editors' Review

by   / December 07, 2014

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Bottom Line

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.
