High-speed HD video conversion is what Xilisoft HEVC/H.265 Converter does best, though that is not its only asset. While many media converters claim to be the most flexible batch converter on the market, this tool is one of the very few that offer true multi-output batch conversion. Its built-in video player and its wide variety of output profiles complete its main features.

Undoubtedly, being able to convert a large number of video files into the specific format and with the specific settings that your favorite device requires is the minimum we all expect from a competitive media converter. The problem is when we don’t have one favorite device, but a few of them. Here is where Xilisoft HEVC/H.265 Converter stands out from the great majority of video conversion tools out there. While these will ask you to set up as many conversion tasks as output formats your require, this truly flexible and versatile tool will allow you to combine into one single conversion process all possible combinations you may require. You can convert one video on the list into a format that fits your iPad requirements, another one to comply with your PC’s media player, shrink another so that it fits on your smartphone’s memory card, and extract the audio of a bunch of other videos so that you can listen to them in your car. To complicate things further, the program lets you assign to any of those videos on the list as many output formats as you wish, and perform all those re-encoding and audio extraction operations in just one go.

Other than this impressive level of versatility, Xilisoft HEVC/H.265 Converter behaves pretty much like most of its competitors. It comes with a wide range of device- and codec-based output profiles that support customization, including the possibility of adding basic metadata to your video files. It comes with a small preview window and a full-screen media player for you to enjoy your video files in all their glory. Speed is probably the program’s second main asset – it can make use of all your system’s cores to convert your files at maximum speed. It also has drawbacks though, such as the total absence of the most basic editing features.

Other than that, I find this tool to be a flawless converter with the highest level of flexibility you can think of – use it wisely, and you won’t need to open it again until you decide to add new video titles to your collection.
