In this article I am going to show you a process through which you can compress large video files and reduce it's size up to 95%. OK without any delay lets jump into our tutorial.

Things needed:

1) A software named handbrake. Click here to download this software.

How to do it?

In order to reduce the file size of the video file up to 95%, you have to follow the simple steps given below.

Step 1

First of all launch handbrake, and open the video file by clicking open source option on the top navigation bar and click file option to open single video file and open the file which you wanna reduce the size.
Click open source

Click file and open the file which you wanna reduce the size.

Step 2

Now we will name the output video file and select the destination in which we wanna save the file in our storage by clicking browse. Please remember the destination because we will find our output video file at that destination after reducing the size of the file.

Giving a name and destination to the output video file.

Step 3

Select fast1080p30 on presets.

Check Web Optimized and cropping on Top, Left, Button and Right should be 0.

Step 5

Now, on video tab, on Video Codec select H.264 (x264) and in Constant Quality, higher will be the value lower the video quality will be and vice versa, So I suggest you to set it on 22 RF which will keep the balance between quality and size of the file.

On Video Codec select H.264 (x264) and in Constant Quality set it on 22 RF.

Step 6

Now with the setting you have changed, create a new preset by clicking plus sign(+) on preset section and name it as your wish. By doing this, you don't have to change the settings every time you reduce the file size of a video.

Click plus sign on presets tab.

Name the preset and click Add.

Step 7

Now click Start Encode, and your video will be encoded and will be save in the destination you save in Step 2.

Click Start Encode.

After completing all the above steps, a new video file will be saved to the destination set in step 2, after encoding. the output video file's size will decrease and some time the size may decrease up to 95 %
