Zamzar: The Only Tool You Need for File Conversion
Saying Zamzar is amazing is an understatement. The service has been around since 2006. I’ve been using it as needed since 2008 or 2009 (life is all a blur). They make video conversions dead-simple. All you need to do is:
- Upload the file you’re looking to convert
- Choose the file type you want you file to be
- Enter your email address
Within a matter of moments, you’ll get a download link sent directly to your inbox. It’s free, it’s simple and everyone should know about it. If you want a faster service and to remove advertisements from the web interface, they have very affordable plans available under their “Sign Up” link on their home page.
Note, if you’re coming to this post from my “How To Make Video Backgrounds Using HTML5” post, converting .mp4 files to .ogg files on Zamzar sometimes does not work (but I still love them). Check out this alternative when converting to .ogg files, although I would recommend trying Zamzar first.
As a total side note, Zamzar is an interesting example of a great service with a great UX, but not a great UI.
