I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!Tillie

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.Jiunn-Ru Lai

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.Aron Boyette

MOV Video Format MOV Converter
The MOV file format is also known as the Apple QuickTime Movie file format. The file itself is a container format that stores audio and video data, and metadata. The types of metadata it contains are text, which allows for things like menus in a DVD, and timestamps.
MOV files typically use the MPEG-4 codec for compression. The main advantage of the MOV format and why it is widely used is because it is smaller in size and more efficient compared with most other video formats.
MOV files are Apple’s proprietary video file format and as such are not universally supported. They can, however, be opened using QuickTime, the VLC media player and Windows Media Player.
GIF Image Format GIF Converter
The GIF gets its name from the fact it is an image file saved in the Graphical Interchange Format. The GIF has been around for 30 years and its history is legendary - it has gone from the brink of obsolescence to widespread use thanks largely to the advent of social media and Internet meme culture. The original intended use of the format was quite different to its use today. Created in 1987 by CompuServe and developer Steve Wilhite it was designed to save precious memory whilst providing a convenient container to display images. In the early '90s GIF's were replace by the new JPG and PNG formats, which offered sharper image resolution and more efficient image encoding. However in recent years the GIF has enjoyed something of a renaissance as it offered a widely supported and easy to use method for creating short animated clip (or "memes"). Websites such as Giphy and Tenor built on the back of this trend, and Twitter and Facebook also offered native support for the format.
