Mike and his brother Chris Whyley created Zamzar in England. Without downloading a software tool, users are allowed to convert files to make it usable in a new format by Zamzar. Zamzar.com was established in 2006. “Zamzar” name is taken from the book “The Metamorphosis” of Bohemian author Franz Kafka. Zamzar converts file formats, such as documents (xls, doc, csv, pdf etc), images (gif, jpg, png, etc), music (mp3, ram, wav etc), video (mov, mp4 etc) and compressed formats (zip, rar, lzh, tar etc).
At present, Zamzar is in the public beta stage of development. Through the Zamzar website, files can be converted by uploading or specifying a URL to retrieve the file from. Users can get a link to the converted file in their desired format by e-Mail. Youtube videos can also be downloaded with the use of Zamzar. Generally, files will be converted in minutes but on the basis of their size (up to 100 MB), the time duration will increase. Users can convert up to five files at the same time.Zamzar is free to use service but a monthly payment can be made by users, in order to access preferential features, such as online file management, shorter response and queuing times and other benefits. Users can pay for faster service, file storage, and higher size limits. The free service is sufficient for the individual users but it is a good idea for businesses. When users visit Zamzar.com, they will see navigation such as “Home”, “Manage files”, “Conversion types”, “tools”, “Blog”, “FAQ”, and “Signup”. They will also see the options like “About us”, “Tell a friend”, “Terms of service”, “Privacy”, and “Donate”. Convert files, download video, and manage files at the home page. Users will also see the “want a Zamzar inbox?” option, by which they can convert 1 GB files, no Ads, 1oo GB inbox, and convert faster. They will also see the “Login” option at the top of the home page. By entering email address and password, users can easily login at Zamzar.com.
