How to Compress Mp4 Video

1. Create a zip file.

The most common way to compress a video is to convert it into a zip file. The file will be reduced in size, and the quality won’t be affected. Although this is a fast and easy way to compress a video, you won’t notice a huge change in file size. This feature is available for both Windows and Mac users:

  • Right-click on the video file:
    • Windows users, choose “Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder”

  • The file will automatically be compressed.

2. Make a video shorter and smaller with iMovie on Mac.

Most Mac devices now come with iMovie, the free movie editing tool from Apple. With iMovie, you can shorten your video and only send a part of it, obviously decreasing the size of the file. Additionally, iMovie contains a feature that prepares your file for e-mail which helps compress it for sending:

  • Open iMovie and click on the arrow in the top left of the menu bar.

3. Download a video in a lower quality.

To download a video from the internet in a lower quality, and therefore a smaller file size, follow this easy procedure for Windows and Mac:

4. Use a cloud service.

Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, and others are cloud services that enable you to share big video files easily. They all work more or less the same way, by first registering an account then downloading the desktop client, or accessing the service online. Then you can upload the video file and share the generated link by e-mail with your colleague or friend.

 5. Share a video link without uploading.

Parallels Access has a feature, “Share a file” which allows you to share large video files in just a few clicks, without needing a cloud service or uploading the file to your Mac or PC.  You simply generate a link to your video and send it to your contacts, with the option of adding a password and expiration date:

  • Download Parallels Access and activate.
  • Right-click on the video file that you want to share and select “Share > Parallels Access”

  • A link has been generated that you can share with your contacts via e-mail. They simply click on the link and download the video before the link expires.

6. Make a GIF.

GIFs are playing an increasingly important role, especially on social media. A GIF is basically a mini video, with no sound, that can be watched in just a few seconds. Making a short, animated GIF out of your video will definitely decrease the size, and it can be fun to create:

  • Open the tool “Make GIF” from Parallels Toolbox.
  • Drop or copy your video to the tool.
  • Select the part of the video you want to make a GIF from, add text, and choose the auto-looping direction.
