ok now a lot of computer things I do know... but what I don't know, its one of those I really have absolutely not the slightest idea how to even figure it out at all. this would be one of those things....

so... lets say my video is 612MB and I have to upload it where my max is 500MB... how can I squish it without actually cutting the time down?

Will it be viewed directly from the site you are uploading to? Or is that just 'storage'?

If it is just a storage area, you could compress the file with WinZip, PKZIP, or another "zipper".
However, nobody could view it without first 'unzipping' it.

If it is for public viewing, such as YouTube, you could lower the resolution a tad, and save some MBs.

Could use handbrake to re-encode it, haven't used it in a while but I think you can tell it you want the new version to be 500mb and it will adjust the bitrate.

Looks like youtube re-encodes for you.


If you need tools for other video stuff, lots of info here.
Forum is mainly for DVD, but they use all the tools.

Good night. Drive safely. Here's a tiny ad for the road:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
