Default Convert files without downloading software

Just found this website that lets you upload a video file and convert it to another format and they'll email you when it's done and you can download it from their site......free......just tried it and it works good.

It didn't take very long, took about 10 mins to upload the file and for them to convert it and email me. Took about 2 or 3 mins for me to download it again.

It was a 12 mb .flv video file.

Edit: It was an 8mb .flv file, it's now a 12.5 mb .mp4 file.
