Handbrake is easy to use and works on most videos I have tried. This is my first video conversion program so I was able to learn to use it from the instructions that came with the download. The program takes awhile to do the conversion so it is best to set it up and go do something else.

Pros
  • easy to use
Cons
  • slow
