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.


Used it for over a year to convert my bank statements to csv files. Great quick app, increased my productivity a lot. Also, amazing support - always helped me quickly!

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.


I have been so thankful for Zamzar’s support from the beginning of the Pandemic to the present day. Their service is first rate & their helpfulness is always the best it could be.


A very useful and professional site. The service is easy to use and the administrators are helpful and courteous.

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.

I use Zamar whenever I need to convert audio and video files from multiple submitters to 1 uniform file format for Audio and Video Editing. I can do multiple large files in a short amount of time.

Christopher Bee

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.

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.

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.

3GP Video Format

3GP Converter

The 3GP file format was developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project, hence the name. It is a video container format that's typically used on mobile devices. It was originally developed to save on disk space and reduce the amount of mobile data required to send video files from device to device. It is the de-facto file format for media within text messages, also known as MMS. 3GP files can be opened on almost any 3G mobile phones without the need to download any additional software. To view a 3GP file away from your phone it's possible to use software such as QuickTime, MediaPlayer or VLC. In recent times, with the advent of smartphones and increased bandwith, a new format known as 3G2 has gained popularity, as it is able to store higher quality AAC+ audio.
