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.

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.

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

I feel like Zamzar is an active team member, especially for projects that I work on where I am the workhorse and it saves so much time and frustration. I am spoiled with Zamzar, because they have set the bar for file conversion and customer service very high.

Deborah Herman

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.

MPG Video Format

MPG Converter

An MPG file has a full name of MPEG video file, and was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group. The MPG format is a video format that has been embedded with MPEG compression, specifically MPEG-1 or -2 formatting.

MPG files are widely used, which is perhaps surprising given that the type of compression that’s used – lossy – means there’s some degradation to the file. However, perhaps the reason they are so popular is because, typically, they’re one of the smallest video file formats around, which makes sharing and storage so easy; plus, almost all video applications can open them.

MPG files are made up of audio, video and metadata, all moulded seamlessly into one file. Almost all video applications can open an MPG file, including Windows Media Player and the VLC media player.
