With so many different software applications available over so many different computer operating systems it's no surprise that we'd end up with so many different file types for essentially the same type of media. Occasionally you will find yourself in a situation where you have to use media created in one application that uses a certain file format — i.e. .mov .pages .m4a — in a completely different application that requires completely different file formats for essentially the same type of file — i.e. .wmv .docx .mp3.
In cases like this a good file converter can really save the day. We've included some of our favorite free web-based file conversion sites below.
