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:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N2YWRJ-ppo

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.

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.
