Coming in at the bottom of the list for 2007, but still list-worthy is Zamzar. Here are just a few of the things you can do with this free service:
- Download any flash-based video such as from YouTube, Google Video, Blip.tv, and many others. Here's how. Of course, you'll only do that when it is legal to do so.
- Convert a Word .doc into html, pdf, or any of 5 other file types.
- Convert a .pdf document into a Word (.doc), html, text (.txt), rtf, or several other formats.
- Convert a .jpg into a .gif, .png, .bmp, tiff, etc. etc.
- Convert .wma audio into mp3, ogg, .wav, or several others.
- This list would go on forever if I tried to list all the possible conversions, but they've done it for you.
They have a blog that they post to once in a while. Overall, I find Zamzar to be incredibly useful. I've even used it a few times when I already had a program on my computer to convert a file (such as a .wav audio file into an .pm3) because it was just faster and easier than opening my own program and all that jazz.
