We’ve been listening to your feedback … thanks to everyone who has been writing in with requests for new conversion types – we’re working on implementing them as fast as we can.
Today we’re pleased to announce support for conversions of the increasingly popular music format FLAC (free lossless audio codec). As of today Zamzar supports conversion from FLAC to the following formats:
- aac – Advanced Audio Coding File
- ac3 – AC3 Audio File
- au – AU Audio File
- mp3 – Compressed audio file
- m4a – Compressed video file
- ogg – Ogg Vorbis Compressed Audio File
- wav – Windows audio file
Did you know that you can use Zamzar to convert your video files to a format playable on IPod video players ? The following formats are currently supported, with plans in the pipeline to add more soon:
- avi (Windows video file)
- flv (Flash video)
- gvi (Google video file)
- mov (Apple QuickTime Movie)
- mp4 (MPEG-4 video file)
- mpg (Moving Picture Experts Group file)
Why not give it a go and tell us what you think ?
Just a short post to let you know that Zamzar’s co-founders recently spoke to Michael Zhang from Folksonomy. If you want to learn more about what motivated them to start Zamzar check out the interview.
A big thanks to German site ehrensenf.de who featured Zamzar on their daily video podcast today with regular presenter Katrin – To view the show just click below:
We’re intrigued to know what was said (despite the fact that a member of the Zamzar team claims to have a “working knowledge of German”), so we’re opening this post up to comments:
- Can anyone give us a rough translation of the show’s Zamzar content ?
Update: A big thanks to those of you who commented with translations – the full original and translated text is now available in the comments for this post. 🙂
Bis später !
The Zamzar Team.
We’re into day 5 of the Zamzar odyssey, and here at Zamzar HQ we’ve been working hard to make your file conversion experience as smooth as possible.
As well as fixing the bugs you’ve reported, we’ve been listening to all your requests for new conversion types. Please do keep sending them in – they help us to know what matters to you ! We’ve also enjoyed reading your feedback … one of our favourites so far is shown here (from Lifehacker):
Finally, it was nice to get a hat-tip from the folks over at Wired, who road-tested the Zamzar site this week – thanks guys.
Zamzar continues to be well received – We’ve had comments from bloggers as far afield as France, Russia and Japan. We run all the posts through translation software and enjoy hearing the feedback you’re giving – thanks guys 🙂
We were also pleased to be the top dog on del.icio.us today as well:
As you know we are in Beta at the moment, and we’re experiencing the odd buglet here and there, particularly with some of the video conversions. Please do contact our support team if you find something amiss, and we’ll try and put it right as quickly as possible.
FYI – We’ve had to temporarily pull support for swf conversions. As soon as they’re back we’ll let you know.
The Zamzar Team
One day into the launch of the site and Zamzar is already starting to pick up some good feedback – We hit the front page of thebeststuffintheworld.com today, along with Nike, Flickr and a pair of old trainers …
Thanks to everyone who converted files on day one – we hope you enjoyed the experience !
