Cool Tool – Zamzar

October 19, 2008

I ran across this outstanding online file conversion utility called Zamzar.  It will take document, image, video, music, and compressed files and convert them to other formats of the same type. You can upload a file in your browser or give a URL to the file to convert. The results come as a link sent to your email once the conversion completes, which could take 5 minutes or 5 hours.  I was quite pleased with the results of a conversion from PDF to Microsoft Word format.

Users who need more immediate results can pay for one of several tiers of premium services which include online file storage in addition to priority service.

Ever wanted to put a youtube video into a PowerPoint presentation or an interactive white board file?  Paste the web address of the youtube video into Zamzar and tell it to send you a link of the video in AVI format.
