But Wait .. There is More You Can Do!

In the same way we described here, you can also convert your own home-videos, documents or music by uploading them to Zamzar.


Zamzar has also a web browser button available. Drag this into your toolbar, and you are no more than a click away from converting your favorite video while you are surfing. There is also a possibility to send a file as an attachment in a mail, and Zamzar will send you the converted file back!

Free Versus Paid

This service is completely free to use. And for normal use, with files that don’t exceed 100 Mb, the free option is all you need. But if you want to convert bigger files or you want to manage your converted files online up to an amazing total of 100 Gb, you can use the paid services of Zamzar.

Is Zamzar Safe?

Some people think that Zamzar is not safe because you have to upload your personal files to get them converted. But there are already so many satisfied users, they can’t be wrong. And if you use the free service, the uploaded and converted files will be deleted automatically after 24 hours.

Now you can Convert YouTube Videos to Audio Songs for free!
