A bit of discussion has been going on around the traps about Internet based file conversion apps. Zamzar-LogoZamzar and Media Convert allow you to convert files up to 100mb and 150mb respectively. To convert files one simply uploads a file from their hard drive or from a URL. There seems to be more of these tools coming online all the time. My concern is, if teachers are going to use them in the classroom where are these files being stored before and after conversion? With Terms of Service on the Media Convert site that contain grammatical flaws such as……

Lezard “Your are the only responsible for the data which it sends to Media-Convert servers. One is reminded that the illicit exchanges of recordings and protected works as well as the hacking harm artistic creation………Media-Convert is a free service, which does not offer any guarantee of any kind as for its use. You can use Media-Convert for any activity, personal or profesionnal. “

…. one doesn’t gain confidence in the service providers. So for me the jury is out on whether the usefulness of these tools is for you or for the convertor.

Has anyone used them with success?
