We’re excited to announce that we just launched three new applications which allow you to convert files right on your desktop !
- Dropbox Converter – Convert files to various formats directly within your Dropbox account.
- Hot Folders – Monitor folders on your desktop & automatically convert files to other formats.
- Zamzar Bash – Convert files directly from the command line.
Using the Zamzar API
These apps all build on top of our powerful file conversion API which allows you to bake file conversion into your application using a tiny amount of code and a simple REST API. Our API supports the conversion of 100’s of formats and is cloud-based to scale with your needs, whether you’re converting 1 file or 100,000.
We have made the source code for all these applications publicly available, so you can grab it, and build your own apps and tools on top of it (for both commercial and personal use).
Thanks to Michael Walsh and Joe Anderson for their efforts in developing the code for the Dropbox Converter and Hot Folders respectively, building on their initial efforts at our York University Hack Day.
Happy (desktop) converting,
The Zamzar Team.
