How to Compress Video File in Smartphone & PC/Computer

Have you ever thought of sending a video or putting it as video status buy couldn’t do it due to the large video size? Well, video compression comes handy in those situations.

Most of the time we capture video using a smartphone and due to continuous improvement in the camera quality, the video size increases drastically. Even a short video clip can reach the video size of 500MB or even 1GB.

If you consider my word truly, we don’t need video quality more than 720p on the smartphone. As you will not notice any difference in video quality more than 720p and sometimes it can be detrimental when your smartphone hangs to play 2K & 4K videos.
