Thought I'd give 2.1 a go: #24 - Zamzar

Well, I've decided to play around a bit with 2.1 - have been checking out Zamzar, a file conversion programme. This site offers 'on-the-fly' conversion of text, image, audio and video file formats without installing a download.

Unfortunately if you're using the free version, there's no timespan guaranteed for the conversion - a link gets emailed to you and then you need to retrieve the converted file, and it only gets stored for 1 day from the time of the email!!!!

I just converted a powerpoint presentation to html but yes, I'm still waiting for my email!!!!! so I don't know if it's worked yet.


Well, I received the converted files this morning... a powerpoint presentation converted to HTML and a word document converted to a .pdf file... seems to work ok... but don't know how useful it would be because you have to wait for conversion... and if you don't pick up within 24 hours you lose it... but could come in handy I guess... don't know that it's a tool that I would use much of...

I found this amazing website it is a WEB 2.0 that supports all media files conversion it is called http://youconvertit.com, they can do the following:
1- Convert document, images, audio, video and Archived files.
2- Convert any Youtube and other Online Video to popular formats or download the video
3- Send file(s) up to 300 MB to friends or post it on any forum for 7 days
4- Convert any type of units (Acceleration, Area, Torque and others)

what makes them amazing is you can add up to 5 different file formats, i used them to convert a document and couple of audio files.

Try them and give me your feedback http://www.youconvertit.com
