|With the popularity of HD cameras and the preference for 4K UHD/1080P high definition, a very short video can easily run several gigabytes in size. This enforces users to reduce and compress video size to make the video smaller for different reasons. For example, to allow the videos to be uploaded to web like YouTube or sent via email to family or friends, you have to make video size smaller than 2GB for YouTube and 25MB for most email system. Another simple example, you will need to pay extra $100 to get an iPhone 6S with larger storage. So, in the final analysis, is there any video size compressor or way to compress and reduce video file size from HD/UHD MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV etc?
Windows Movie Maker is a professional compressor claiming that they can reduce video file size. However, with the release of Windows 10, Windows Movie Maker is no longer available. Here is an alternative that works equally well to make large files smaller, Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate. This file compressor can significantly shrink the file size without losing any quality by converting the video to smaller formats like FLV, WMV, AVI, RMVB etc, adjusting various video audio settings, cutting unwanted parts etc. I have used it to compress a MP4 video which is 108MB. After compression the size is 30.1MB only while I can’t identify any quality loss. It can reduce up to 70% of the file size from 4K UHD/HD 1080P. Mac users please turn to Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac.

How to Compress 4K/1080P HD Video Size without Losing Quality
Step 1: Load the Video File
Launch this video reducer and click “Add File” to load the video files you want to resize.
Step 2: Choose Output Format
To make the video file size smaller, choose one of the formats with smaller size. To upload to web like YouTube, you’re suggested to convert the video to FLV; to send the video via email, select WMV as the output format; to playback on Android iOS devices, choose MP4 (or the specific device profile like iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6/6 Plus/5S and more).
Step 3: Tweak the Video Settings
In the settings window, you are allowed to adjust various parameters like Resolution, Frame Rate, Bit Rate, etc. Note that the lower parameters value will reduce video size, but it will also degrade the video quality. So make a balance between the quality and size.
Tips: you can also edit the video to further reduce the video file size, like trim the unwanted parts or cut the necessary length etc.
Step 4: Start to Compress Video Size
After finish the above steps, click the “Convert” button to start shrink video file size now.
