Movavi today announced that it had added new tools to Movavi Online, a web-based service that lets users download and convert video from one format to another for use with iPods, mobile phones and other devices.

Where the first version of Movavi Online gave users the ability to upload video stored on a PC, the service upgrade now you download video from YouTube, Google, MySpace, MetaCafe and other video-sharing sites. You can also download and watch Flash videos, convert video from the Internet to AVI, MP4, MPG, 3GP and other formats for use with iPod, iPhone, PSP, cellphone and other devices, and merge several videos into one large movie.

In addition, at a companion site, Movavi now offers new free widgets for Facebook, iGoogle, MacOS, and the Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera browsers.¬†Movavi’s widgets let¬†you offer video conversion services from their own Web sites, blogs, social networking pages and browsers. Here’s an example:


As an online service, there is no software for users to install at the desktop. Instead, as webware, the service works with any Windows, Mac or Linux-based PC with access to the Internet via a Web browser. After identifying a video from YouTube, for example, or uploading a file from the hard disk of a notebook or desktop PC, users simply choose the desired output format, and provide an email address. When the conversion is complete, Movavi uses the email address to notify users when and where they can download their converted files. The process usually takes less than a day, and users may convert up to five 10-minute, 100MB clips during one session.

The service supports a broad range of popular video formats, including the advanced H.264 format used by Apple’s new iPhone, AVI, MP4, MPEG 2 (PAL and NTSC), MPEG 4, iPod at 320×240, iPod 5G at 640×480, PSP, 3gp and 3gp2 for cellphones, MOV for podcasting, and FLV Flash video.
