Reasons for Compressing Videos

Failed to send through Email

It is time-consuming to send a video file with a large size through email (Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Web-based service, etc.). What's more, there is a video size limit and you may totally fail to do that. Thus, it is necessary to reduce the video size to make the process faster as well as convenient. Learn more >>

Better enjoy videos on mobile phone

It is not true that higher resolution of videos can always provide with better watching experience on your mobile phone. Then you need to find a video resolution reducer to compress the file so that it fits perfectly over your phone screen. For example, you can compress 4K videos to 720P. Learn more >>

Solutions to Video Compression

One Click to Compress Video by Changing Video Formats (Lossless & Lossy)

Simply select a proper output format to reduce the video size such as MP4, FLV, 3GP, etc. because they are usually smaller than other files due to high compression rate. You can preview the video size on the main window before conversion. But make sure your recipient can play the video in the selected output format. By the way, if you compress videos that are encoded in H.264, iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate will always keep the original video & audio quality unless you change the encode settings. But you should know that this method has limited effect on reducing video size.

Edit Parameter Settings to Compress Videos to the Smallest Size

Changing Bit Rate

Normally, the smaller video you want, the lower bit rate. The bit rate also controls the image quality. Please mind that the image will totally be destroyed if the bit rate is too low.

Changing the Resolution of the Video

The resolution of any file determines its size as well as quality. If you are aiming to reduce file size, reducing the resolution with a video resolution reducer will do the trick.

Changing Frame Rate

Changing frame rate is another aspect which can be considered while reducing video file size. The frame rate is directly related to file size and thus reducing one will directly affect the other.

Reduce Video Size by Cutting Unwanted Parts

Aside from the above solutions, you can also reduce video file size by removing unwanted parts from your video. To achieve that, you can use the in-built video editor feature in iSkysoft Video Converter Ultimate.
