We’ve worked on a lot of computers and we’ve noticed many of you have installed software for converting one file format to another. Frankly, many of the file conversion programs you can download free also install malware or come bundled with malware. Whenever possible we try not to install some things like file converters for example. We’re always keeping up on useful Web services (or discovering them) and today we discovered a new one called FileMinx which allows you to convert many types of DOC, Image, Music and Video file from one format to another.
If you’re looking for a quick way to convert files from one format to another, for whatever reason, you might want to take a look at File Minx at http://www.fileminx.com . It’s free and works very well. Keep in mind there’s a limit to the size of file you can convert. Currently the maximum file size you can convert is 50 MB, which covers about all DOC, Image, and Music formats – but some video files, may easily go over that limit. You can convert files from your computer or from the Internet.
Here’s a list of file formats you can convert to/from:
DOC, DOCX, LWP, MediaWiki, ODT, PDF, RTF, TXT, Word 6, Word 97-03, WPS
BMP, GIF, ICO, JPEG, JPG, PCX, PIC, PICT, PNG, PSD, SUN, TGA, TIF, TIFF, WMF
AAC, AIF, AIFF, AU, FLAC, iPhone, iPod, MKA, MP2, MP3, OGG, RA, SND, VOC, WAV, WMA
3G2, 3GP, ASF, AVI, DIVX, DVD, Flash, GIF, iPod, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG, MPG, PSP, RM, WMV, XVID
If you have files you want to convert and they are 50 MB or less in size, you might want to give FileMinx a try. It’s free. BE ADVISED – This site is supported by advertising. Beware the ads at the top and right-side offering to convert files.
NOTE: FileMinx has announced they will be shutting down on 12/31/2018.
