Convert files and store them online with Zamzar and MyDataBus

MyDataBus convert with ZamzarZamzar is an online service for converting images, videos, and documents from one format to another. MyDataBus is a service that lets you store up to 5GB of files online for sharing via MySpace, Facebook, or other social networking sites.

The two sites have announced a new partnership that lets you easily perform file conversions of media uploaded to MyDataBus. The collaboration makes a lot of sense. If you've uploaded a bunch of PNG, GIF, and BMP files that you'd rather store as JPEGs, you can click the options tab and use Zamzar to convert the files without uploading them to Zamzar first.

The integration's not quite complete. When you're converted file is ready for download, Zamzar shoots you an email with a link to a page where you can download the file. There's no way to automatically save the file to MyDataBus. But there is a note on the page suggesting that you could store your files online if you sign up for a MyDataBus account.

It would be nice if you could upload your files to one site, convert them, and save them to the same site all without having to open a new web page. But we doubt we'll see that any time soon unless MyDataBus buys Zamzar or vice versa.
