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!

I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.

David Shelton

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.

Ana Suárez

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

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.

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.

MP4 Video Format

MP4 Converter

An MP4, sometimes known as an MPEG4, is a multimedia file that is used to store video or audio data. MP4 files are typically smaller in size than other audio or video file types because MP4 files use a mix of compression technologies. Video and audio compression are usually handled by different codecs (audiovisual encoders). The video part is compressed with MPEG-4, a standard that was developed by Moving Picture Expert Group (MPEG), while the audio is typically compressed using AAC compression.

The explosion in popularity of the MP4 format is largely down to Apple and the iTunes Store, as it is the standard format for almost all of the media downloaded from the store. MP4 files are also typically seen when a video is downloaded from the internet.

MP4 files can normally be opened on your computer using Windows Media Player or QuickTime, and can be opened on mobile devices without the need to download any applications.
