Compressing Videos with the Movavi Video Converter Review


Videos take up a ton of space – and as a rule of thumb the higher the quality of the video, the larger its corresponding file size. While it may be fine to store movies that are several gigabytes each on your hard drive where you have terabytes worth of space, when it comes to mobile devices it is an entirely different story. On top of that, most mobile devices probably don’t have the capacity to fully display top quality videos, so a lot of it ends up just being wasted space.


Whether you want to save space on your hard drive or mobile device however, the key is to compress video so that its file size becomes smaller. With the Movavi Video Converter you’ll find that the process of doing so is really quite straightforward, and all you need to do is:

  1. Add the video that you want to compress by clicking on the ‘Add video’ button and selecting the video.
  2. Choose the format of video that you want to convert it to or select a preset that will automatically optimize it for a specific device or platform of your choosing.
  3. If you want to adjust the compression further, click on the value that appears as the ‘size’ in the output column. When you do you’ll see a slider that will let you manually adjust the final estimated video size.
  4. Click ‘Convert’ to start the conversion process.

In a nutshell, you’ll have the option of either optimizing your video with the best possible settings for any device or platform, or to manually adjust the file size until it fits your needs.

If you like you could also take advantage of some of the other features in the Movavi Video Converter to enhance the video quality, cut or join video segments, add text as captions, extract audio, create animated GIFs, rotate or crop the video, and much more.

Be sure to try out as many features as you can when you first use the Movavi Video Converter so that you get a feel for what it is capable of. At the same time you’ll also be able to experience firsthand just how intuitive and user-friendly it is. In a matter of minutes you should be able to convert and compress your videos until they fit whatever application you intend for them.
