The modern video resizer for teams and creators alike

A faster, easier way to resize a video

Say goodbye to clunky, outdated video software. Kapwing was designed to help you create more content faster. With nearly a dozen preset video resolution and dimension ratios, you’re able to get in and out in just a few clicks. From TikTok to Instagram to YouTube to Twitter, our free online video resizer lets you create as many versions as you need for as many social media platforms as you want. Resize videos for Instagram Reels, TikToks, and YouTube videos. Creators can also define the specific pixels dimensions and change the resolution they want to get the perfect video size. You won’t need to sacrifice video quality while you resize.

Drag and drop on the canvas

When making a video, you have full control over the visual layout. Define the canvas size, then drag the video layer to scale and expand or shrink and reduce the size of the image. You can align multiple videos to be the same size using Kapwing's inline alignment tools and crop part of the video. Time the videos out relative to each other on the timeline, and position them to be the perfect size with outlines, borders, frames, overlays, and subtitles superimposed. If you need more padding, use the Add and Remove padding buttons to change the aspect ratio of the background.

More than just a video resizer

You can choose to resize a video and be done. Kapwing supports MP4, MOV, MPEG, GIF, HEVC, and all other popular video file formats plus imports from LinkedIn, TikTok, Google Drive, and YouTube URLs. You can use Kapwing’s robust all-in-one video editor to enhance your videos or make new ones from scratch. Kapwing's Resize Video tool allows you to convert videos from one size to another, like a landscape to vertical video, with several background options. In the export menu, users can choose to compress or optimize their video while the new size is processed. Take advantage of other features like keyframing, video trimming with transcript, subtitle generation, and silence removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do I resize an MP4 video?

Resizing MP4 video clips is a process that involves using a tool to alter its original dimensions and aspect ratio—hopefully without diminishing the video resolution or quality. To resize an MP4 video, you can manually adjust the width and height in pixels, depending on the recommended measurements of the platform or channel you’re looking to post on. Enter the pixel values of the output you want to get an exact size, like 1080x1080. Or, if you’re using a tool with presets, you can choose the ones you need without having to do the extra research.

How do I resize a video in Windows?

There are several video resizer tools that you can download onto your Windows PC, like HandBrake, VLC, and Shotcut, as well as online video resizers like Kapwing. An online resizer is an ideal option if you’re looking to free up your computer’s memory and storage, as they operate fully on the cloud instead of on your device. The video resizing process will be generally similar across various platforms: upload your video file, select a preset dimension or manually input your own, and export your new resized video.

Which app is the best to resize a video?

Finding the best app will depend on your unique needs, like the video format you’re resizing, the size of the video file, and the dimensions you’re trying to resize to. If you're using a Windows or Mac computer, Kapwing is an excellent video resizer website, and you won't ned to install an app to use the video editor. If you're on an iPhone or Android, Facetune, Capcut, and Videoleap may also work well.

How do you post a YouTube video on Instagram?

Repost from YT to IG? There's no quick way to post a YouTube video on Instagram Stories. To make a story, copy the URL of the YouTube video and import it into a video editing website like Kapwing. Then, click the 9:16 story option to resize your video for IG. You can fill the vertical canvas and crop the content, center the vertical video layer in the middle, or make the background blurred to expand the video layer. The best ratio for Instagram Stories and Reels is 1080 x 1920.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
