The other day a client sent me a video in MOV format. Now you can use this on the web, but MP4 is much more flexible because programs like WordPress will automatically generate a player for MP4s. So I needed to convert my client’s file.
Luckily there are numerous free online converters for video files, but the one I like best is CloudConvert. The reason is, it does virtually any kind of file conversion, not just video. Plus it’s easy to access files whether you have them on your device or in the cloud:
And when I say it does more than video conversion, I mean it can convert over 200 types of files across many different uses:
The service is free, unless you need to do a whole lot of files regularly. But for the average small business owner, the need to convert only comes up every so often, whether for your business in general or for your website.
