Indeed, there are too many options now and from what i see most of them are doing the same thing. Is getting harder and harder to choose from.
Albert Smith
So basically you can just add your URL, select the type of file to be converted and that\'s it? Man, that\'s neat!

I find it very useful because there are some formats that require conversion to run smoother and to reduce the size. I know that when you download videos from YouTube they come in .flv format which is very nice and runs very smooth with most of the players.
