Freemake Converters

by Jeremy Hanson Hanson.Jeremy@MacPhail.org

With the multitudes of devices in use today (such as laptops, iPads, iPods, smart phones, digital audio recorders, video recorders, etc.), it can be difficult to get them to all work well together.  Each device creates files in different formats.  Typical audio file types include MP3, WAV, WMA, M4A, FLAC, AAC, and OGG.  Typical video file types include AVI, MPEG, MP4, and WMV. 

Two very reliable and handy free conversion tools available are the Freemake Video Converter and the Freemake Audio Converter.

These allow you to convert any audio or video file to another type easily and quickly.  For example, let’s say that your digital audio recorder saves files in a WAV format, but you want to put them on an iPod or other mp3 player.  Simply install and open the Audio Converter, drag the WAV file into the window, and click the button at the bottom of the screen to convert it to an mp3 file.  There are storage benefits as well – WAV files tend to be very large and take up a lot of space on a hard drive, whereas mp3 files are usually very small.
