A picture says more than a thousand words. The video format has become fashionable and YouTube and Instagram use Facebook to increase their engagement by focusing on video content. I’m pretty sure most Windows users have been using video content for some time, but unlike images, videos are larger. If you want to send videos by email or share them on a social media platform, it is important to reduce the size of the video or, in other words, compress the video. In this article, let’s take a closer look at some of the best free online video reduction tools and video compressor and reduction software.
Reduce the size of video online and offline
Unlike other video conversion programs, Video Smaller is offered with a clear intent. Smaller videos focus primarily on reducing the size of the video. Before I begin, I would like to mention that VideoSmaller is an online video compression service and you do not need to install any additional software. But it also means that a broadband Internet connection is essential. VideoSmaller is completely free, and the compression algorithm is just right.
All you have to do is browse the video file and download it in the download menu. You can then specify whether you want to use a low compression level (lowest possible compression without compromising quality). Note that the tool lacks a custom option for scaling the video width. VideoSmaller also offers a feature that removes audio from the video.
Unlike the other services mentioned here, Clipchamp places a watermark on your videos. This online video conversion tool is best known for processing multiple videos (batch processing) and offers a good set of features for an online conversion tool. In summary, this tool offers a video compression tool, conversion tool, instant video recording in the browser and a video editing tool. It was nice to see that Clipchamp could handle 4K video conversion without any problems. To remove watermarks, you must pay – you must know that.
Free Video Converter
Free Video Converter is an offline video converter best known for its ability to handle batch video conversion. This tool supports a variety of video formats, including MP4, AVI, MPEG, MP3 and a preset optimized for iOS devices. The only drawback, I see, is that users have to pay to remove the watermarks. Otherwise, a superlative option when it comes to converting and merging videos into a single file. Get it on the home page.
Any video conversion software
AnyVideo Converter is a complete video converter that meets your online and offline needs. It allows users to convert videos to YouTube and other popular online platforms with relative ease. AnyVideo Converter supports video conversion from Facebook, Vimeo, Metacafe and others. It also comes with an option to extract audio from CDs and DVDs, just in case.
Best of all, Any Video Converter supports all major video formats. In addition, the tool also offers custom profiles for each device. I also noticed that the conversion process is quite fast, but does not consume too much processing power.
Handbrake Video Converter Freeware
HandBrake Video Converter is my favorite. Handbrake has earned respect for the support of most video platforms and the open source nature has made it only an impressive choice. The program is intuitive, while offering the best features. Video editing options include cropping, advanced filtering, frame rate adjustment, and presets. This means that the hand brake is relatively new for Windows (first only for the Mac.) The only problem I faced was the steep learning curve, but here too the effort is worth it.
