Compressing videos is vital when sharing content online. You can get around file size limits on social media, email, and messaging platforms by reducing the video size using a video compressor. When videos are compressed, they become compatible with more online platforms for people to see and experience.
Having large video files gets difficult to manage for everyone involved. With Kapwing’s video compressor, you have full control over compressing videos while still maintaining the best video quality possible. Use the compression slider to reduce video file size and make your video more shareable.
Upload a video to Kapwing directly from your computer. You can also paste a video link from an external source like YouTube or TikTok.
Compress your video by using the slider to reduce your video file to the desired size and resolution.
Select Export, and your video will be processed to download and share. No payments or software installations needed!
Oftentimes when we’re trying to share our content with others online, we’re hit with a pop-up window notifying us that we’ve exceeded our file size limit— sometimes as small as 8MB.
With Kapwing’s video compressor, you can compress videos while still controlling the quality of your video. Once you’ve selected how compressed you want your video, you can choose to convert your video to a different file type or select the resolution of your video to ensure the best quality possible. Kapwing’s all-in-one video editor supports all of these workflows while also allowing you to make edits such as trimming clips, adding text and image overlays, combining videos with audio, and much more.
To get started, upload your video file or paste a video URL link in Kapwing. Head to the Export Settings in the video editor and adjust the file size slider to determine how much you want to compress your video. Choose what resolution you’d like your video to be and when ready, export your project as any file type: MP4, GIF, Image, or MP3.
Once your compressed video is finished exporting, you can download your compressed video, share across social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, or TikTok, or send to others using the video link.
