Media-Convert is a free Web service that converts audio, video, and text files for you, from and to virtually any kind of format. No software is needed to covert files with Media-Convert. You only need your favorite Web browser. Furthermore, you don’t have to register. I think this is one of the best media conversion tools for teachers and students.
Converting a file is quite easy with Media-Convert since it allows input files to be locally stored or from a URL. The maximum file size conversion is adequate for 150 MB.
