Tips on Reducing Video Size

Some common problems: the Video Pixel is too large that it can’t be full-screen played on your Player; the video file takes up too much space; the video size is too large that you can’t watch it on your Mobile/Digital Device; or it can’t be uploaded onto video sharing web sites. To deal with these problems, the easiest way is to reduce the video file size. Here we mainly talk about several simple ways to reduce the file size of video and you just need a 3rd party program that has some simple functions: Edit video to lower the file space; adjust video parameters to change the video/audio quality and video dimension; Convert video to different formats.

1. Edit video

No matter the video from streaming video sharing web sites, or from DVD ripped. Almost all the source video has the black edges. Whatever, your tiny screen player won’t like that, not to mention it takes up the file space. So just cut it off.

2. Adjust parameters

Then to adjust some video parameters, we can change the aspect ratio: 220×176, 640×480, 1280×1024, etc. to adjust the screen size. Also Audio Quality can affect the file size, adjust it if needed.

3. Convert video

The most direct and the easiest way to decrease video file size. Some asked, “What is the best format for video files with high quality and low file size?” This is also the key point. Make an example: Similar to select a best audio format for music player (like WMA & MP3), the HD video with general video, H.264 and WMV, Flash, SWF. We just need to convert the HD format to general formats to reduce the video size. Besides, you can also convert the video to the same format, e.g., convert HD AVI to General AVI format.

Above Tips will help you lower the video file size. You can upload lower size video to YouTube, put full-screen video to your Mobile Phone, iPod, iPhone, LG, Nokia, etc. You may need to download video converter software to deal with your video collection. We summarize four criteria when evaluating video converter software:

Input Files – It should accept a wide variety of input files especially your source video formats.

Output Files – You may only need to output to a handful of formats, whereas the number and breadth of output files typically determines the strength of the converter’s overall performance.

Features – The features includes the ability to adjust multiple options including video size, codecs, bitrates and frame rates, to ensure high quality. You may think those features are reserved for advanced users, not to a video rookie, but as we introduce below, a broad feature set which is readily available and easy to find is also important to your conversion success.

Ease of Use – The software interface should be intuitive and non-threatening to the novice user. Most video conversion tasks should be done in several clicks.

With a good video converter, you are close to success.
