Zamzar is a file conversion service which allows you to convert from almost any format to any other valid format and works fast, and basic version is free to use which should almost server your basic needs. All you need is a file and email address where the converted files are sent to Inbox.
As shown below it’s a simple 4 step process, which consists of
- Choose file – simply locate the file, either the URL, or from any other storage device.
- Choose the format – specify which format you want as output.
- Give your e-mail address – the link for the file download is sent on this e-mail address.
- Finally – hit the convert button.
Apart from this, videos from YouTube like sites can also be downloaded in any format (here the list of available formats is big enough like 3gp, 3g2, avi, flv, gvi iphone, ipod, m4v etc.). Steps required here are same as above, i.e. provide URL, choose file format, give the e-mail address, and convert.
As soon as conversion is done the link to download the new file will be delivered in your inbox, this link is valid for one day, starting from the time when it was delivered to your inbox.
