Converting files can be one of the most challenging tasks I have as a web designer. Today, I had to post a video to a client site. The video came to me on a DVD in a format not suited for the web. I don’t have high end video editing software so I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. A little time on Google and some discussion boards and I discovered http://media-convert.com/. This great FREE site guides you through a conversion process for just about any need you may have: movie, sound, images, vector files, compressed formats, presentation. Well, you get the idea. On top of that, you can convert files from your computer or from a URL; grab a screenshot of any URL you need and convert a file to send to your mobile device.
You may not need it today, but keep this site in mind for the future. I am sure I will be using it alot.
