Sending videos across channels like email, WhatsApp, Discord, and social media can be a pain. This is especially true for lengthy or high-quality videos, which can’t be sent at all once they’ve passed a certain file size. If you keep finding yourself in this situation, Kapwing’s MP4 compressor is here to help.
Best of all, this feature is available for free. Just upload your MP4 file, click a few buttons, and you’ll have an MP4 that’s smaller in size but comparable in quality. You’ll be able to download your shiny new videos and share seamlessly with colleagues, clients, customers, and friends.
To get started, upload the MP4 file you’d like to compress. You can upload from your computer or use the drag and drop function. Once it’s in your studio, it’s ready for compression.
Go to the top right of the dashboard and click “Export Project.” A dropdown will appear with a section called “Compression Level.” Use the slider to choose how much MP4 compression you’d like. Below the slider, you’ll see an estimate of how large the file will be based on the level you choose.
When you’ve chosen the level of MP4 compression you’d like, click the green “Export as MP4” button at the bottom of the dropdown. When it’s done, you’ll be able to share a link to the compressed MP4 or download the file to send via email, WhatsApp, Discord, and more.
Kapwing was made for users who expect a great user experience: fast functionality, an intuitive interface, and features that make the whole process easier instead of more complicated. MP4 compression is a breeze—just upload your video file, click a few buttons, and you’ll be on your way with your newly-compressed MP4. Best of all, Kapwing does it all automatically, so you won’t need to manually mess around with compression settings.

In addition to saving money directly, you’ll also save storage space and memory on your device, since it’s all done online using cloud storage and Kapwing’s servers.
After you’ve compressed as many MP4 files as you need, you can collaborate with your team members to ensure that those files get where they need to go.
