The Benefits of Converting to MP3

You may have heard about MP3 converters before and you may have heard about how easy they are to use as well, but if you haven’t heard about the benefits of MP3 then you are certainly missing out. Take a look below to find out more.

Minimal Size

When you take a look at MP3 and you compare it to the other types of audio formats that are out there, you will notice that MP3 takes up hardly any space when compared. You can store full albums of your favourite music and this is just one of the many benefits you get when you use a converter.

Fast and Easy

MP3 tracks are very easy to transfer and they are one of the most versatile music formats out there. You could have a full album transferred in a matter of seconds and it is a great way for you to transport huge volumes of music at any one time. On top of this, you won’t have to worry about the whole thing taking hours either. It’s fast and it’s efficient.

What About An MP3 Converter?

So now you know a bit more about MP3, it’s time to move on to how a converter could help you. A converter can help you to turn all of your WMV, MP4 and other music files within minutes and in some instances you can upload more than one track as well so you know you won’t have any problems there.

It has never been easier for you to start converting and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to get started as well. All you need to do is start using a converter and you could have all of your music tracks converted into one of the most versatile file formats around.

How to Convert a PDF to PNG

I have thought long and hard about this subject, and, quite frankly, all of the software solutions out there suck. These solutions have a long list of problems:

As someone that works in an office environment the three P's are extremely important: Price, Performance, and Privacy. So I came up with my own solution: Geekstreak No More PDF. It has three features that are absolutely important to me:

How to Make a ZIP File for E-Mail

As an office worker I find myself creating zip files to send via e-mail all the time because of various stupid corporate firewall and e-mail attachment restrictions (did you know Adobe strips PDF attachments from all e-mails? I didn't until I had to work with their corporate office!)

Considering I have a ton of other things to do, I forget how to easily make a ZIP file in Windows, so this is really more of a reminder for myself than anything else.

Right click on the file you want to turn into a ZIP and click "Send To" then "Compressed Folder"

It really is that simple to make a zip file for e-mail. If you're not on Windows or want an even easier way to make a ZIP file for e-mail, check out InstaZip. Because I find myself using my phone and tablet to write e-mails more and more I wrote this tool to make ZIP files for me so I can attach them to e-mails from any device without having to worry about downloading an paying for an app.

How To Convert Video Files to MP4 For Free

Converting video files for free is extremely easy, especially in the world of open source software. While there are a lot of options out there, almost all of them are plagued with ads, downloads, and are generally very ... uncomfortable ... to use.

I use, and recommend others use, ffmpeg to accomplish this task (there are loads of other options out there, but ffmpeg is what I'm used to).

ffmpeg is very simple to use if you're just converting files from one format to another. Simply open a command console and use the following command:

ffmpeg -i yourfile.input youfile.output

Of course replacing "yourfile.input" for the file you want to convert, and "yourfile.output" for the file you want to convert to.

If you're not interested in learning a command line tool, try using our tool, Geekstreak TransFormat? It's a simple cloud-based tool that will let you transcode files on any platform.
