New servers

Today we added 4 top notch Dell PowerEdge R610 machines to our existing configuration of servers. These monster servers will help us to meet a growing demand of CPU power needed for all video conversions.

All 4 servers are exact the same and here are their main details…

CPUs: 2 x Intel® Xeon® X5690 3.46GHz, 12M Cache, 6.40 GT/s QPI
Memory: 24GB Memory (6x4GB), 1333MHz Dual Ranked LV RDIMMs
RAID Controller: PERC H700 Integrated RAID Controller, 512MB NV Cache
Hard Drives: 4 x 146GB 15K RPM Serial-Attach SCSI 6Gbps 2.5in Hotplug Hard Drive


New eBook format – PRC

We are now able to convert PRC (Mobipocket) to EPUB, FB2, MOBI, PDF, TXT, LIT. Unfortunately at this we do not offer PRC (Mobipocket) as output file type.


New video formats

We added several AVCHD video formats to the list of supported file types. As of today you can convert .m2t, .m2ts and .mts to all common video types


Increased file size limits

To celebrate the new 2011 we’ve decided to raise the limit of all input files to 200MB


New feature on YouTube conversions

We have implemented a new feature when downloading videos from YouTube. If a video is available in more than one video resolution then you can select between the default resolution and the highest available. This makes possible the download of HD videos from YouTube.

Here is an example:

Let’s say you are converting a movie trailer from the url above. If you select Highest available as YouTube video resolution then we will download the 1080p version of this trailer and convert it to a video with the same resolution. Otherwise we will download the video played by default when opening this page.


eBook conversions

We are now supporting some of the most used eBook file types. From now on you can convert EPUB, FB2, MOBI and LIT files.


ConvertFiles.com was down for 30 minutes today

We had a short outage today because one 4GB memory chip on our front-end server just died. Everything must be back to normal now.


ConvertFiles – Server maintenance

Due to a server maintenance today we were unable convert all files in the past few hours.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


Download and convert videos from Empflix

As of today you can download and convert videos from Empflix.com


Bugs fixed – video sharing websites

There were some problems with downloading flash videos from YouKu and KeezMovies. It seems like the site owners made some changes on the layouts and ConvertFiles was unable to detect the exact location of the flash videos. Our developers made the necessary updates and everything is working fine now.


New feature – extracting thumbnails from a video file

ConvertFiles.com is now able to extract screenshots from your videos. By selecting “Extracted thumbnails (.jpg)” as output format you will get a ZIP file containing JPGs extracted from the video. We are currently making one JPG on every 10 seconds.


Convert CAD files – ConvertFiles is now supporting DWG and DXF

I am happy to let you know that from now on you can convert also DWG and DXF files.

DWG (“drawing”) is a file format used for storing two and three dimensional design data and metadata. It is the native format for several CAD packages including AutoCAD, IntelliCAD (and its variants) and Caddie. In addition, DWG is supported non-natively by many other CAD applications.

DXF (Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format) is a CAD data file format developed by Autodesk for enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other programs.


100 000 converted files

Today we celebrate our 100 000th file conversion. Such numbers make us really happy because they prove we have made a great site helping you to convert all your files in a format you like.


PDF to DOC – Beta tests

As you can see we now convert PDF to DOC. We are still testing so don’t expect too much at the beginning. Also it is possible that we shut down temporary this conversion possibility.


Download and convert videos from KeezMovies

Another very fast growing video sharing website was added today. You can now download and convert videos from KeezMovies.com


Download and convert xHamster videos

You can now use ConvertFiles to download and convert videos from xHamster.com


Download and convert YouJizz videos

Another sites was added today to the list of our supported video sharing websites. You can now download and convert YouJizz.com videos.


Bug fixed – PDF to image

During the move to our new servers we’ve blocked somehow all conversions from PDF to PNG and JPG. Problem is fixed now and you can continue converting PDF files.

I have also some very good news regarding PDF conversions. Soon you will be able to convert PDF to DOC :)


Problems with YouTube

We just found a little bug making some of the converted YouTube files with much lower quality than the ones played on the site. We are trying to solve this problem ASAP
