Video Performer is a simple video converter application for Windows.
If you have different devices that accept different kinds of video formats, it can be a hassle to get your video files to work on all of them. There are plenty of video converters for Windows but many are confusing and offer too many options for the average user. Video Performer simplifies the process with a minimalistic interface and only a few customization options.
You can choose a single file or an entire directory to convert. Choose where to output your videos or Video Performer will default to the folder where the files are currently. Choose a format to convert to and Video Performer will begin the conversion.
Performance of Video Performer is very good. Videos encoded quickly and played back smoothly, though some formats showed some artifacts. Video Performer can also extract audio from video if you select one of its many audio formats. This makes getting audio extremely simple.
While there are a few options in Video Performer for the more advanced user, they are still pretty basic compared to apps like Handbrake that offer control over every aspect of the video conversion. Also, users shouldn't expect any help if any conversions fail as there are no warning messages or helpful popups.
Video Performer should be at the top of your download list if all you want is a simple video converter.
