Conveniently reduce the size of the videos you are planning to upload to various streaming services online using this simple utility
Even though we all prefer to watch videos in Full HD or 4K resolutions, unfortunately, these clips can be troublesome for online usage. Since the principle is the higher the resolution, the bigger the size, some of the videos you take with the smartphone or camera can be too large. Therefore, they are either not accepted for the website you want to upload them or can take a lot of time to be loaded on various video file hosting services.
As the name suggests, Video Compressor is a tool designed to address the issue and compress the clip to a more acceptable size.
Add the video and press compress
The installation is a quick and uneventful process that does not require any special attention on your part. Upon launch, you are welcomed by a clean and intuitive interface that can be suitable even for those who did not similar programs before.
Functionality-wise, the application is as simple to use as it looks. Therefore, you can get started by adding the video you want to process and then hit the compress button. While the file is compressed, you can preview the status and estimated time in the lower right area of the interface.
The new video can be stored in the same location as the original, but you need to change the name. The tool works with videos in various formats, including MOV, FLV and AVI, for instance and you can save the new video in a MP4 or M4V format.
A simple and straightforward tool for compressing videos
It is worth mentioning that the program works with solely one clip at a time, so it may cause some inconvenience if you want to compress multiple files at the same time. Nevertheless, unless you need to process dozens of files at the same time, it should not be a serious issue for the casual user.
All in all, Video Compressor is a user-friendly and minimalistic application that can come in handy for anyone who wants to quickly compress a video before using it online.
