This article will cover the usual file conversion speed inquiries. If you perform an OCR, please read an article about our OCR processing speed.
A lot of file conversions are performed instantly, i.e. it took several seconds to complete. These include an image, archive, audio conversions.
Among file conversions that are not instant and may take some time to complete, currently, only video conversions report its progress in percentages, so you can track it goes from 0 to 100% and roughly calculate an ETA for this file conversions. All other non-instant file conversions don't display conversion progress and it makes looks like file conversion stuck on the Converting stage, when it is not.
The document conversion speed highly depends on a document page count, for example, single-page PDF can be converted into DOC almost instantly, but DOC, weighting 1 MB and having 1000 pages may take minutes to convert.
The video conversion speed highly depends on a wide variety of factors, which include the frame size (width and height), video duration and desired output video format. For example, the time needed to convert a Full HD video from one video format into another may be as long as half of the real video duration. This is because we don't simply change the video container, but do a full re-encode of video and audio streams. Unfortunately, at this moment you can't set conversion options that may reduce file conversion speed, but this option will be available in the future.
