    I recently took a video that was 1.5 min and the size of the file was over 6 mb. I used the default settings. I was unable to enclose it in a text, or an email on the phone. I moved it to my computer but still was unable to email it as it was to large. I tried zipping it, raring it but could find no way to send it.

    There has to be a way to reduce the size of a video as I can with photo's. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    You'd probably be better off uploading it to OneDrive and sending a link to your friends.

    Thanks for the reply, but how do the people who rip video movies and record tv shows reduce the size of their video's. I use Windows Media Center to record live TV on my computer and a half hour show in H D is over 2 gb while those available like on Pirate Bay a half hour show is only 200 MB so there has to be a way to reduce the size of phone video's and send them to my children.

    I use Format Factory software. Try it, it's free. Just change your video quality from 1080 to 720 to 460 to xx

    I've been using a program called Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate for years. Not free (About $50 US right now) but it does a very good job of resizing/compressing/cropping and light editing of almost any Video stock you can imagine (including optical-based media). Support (on the very few occasions I've needed) is very good for a Chinese operation as well.

    Video Converter Ultimate–backup Blu-ray/DVD, convert video to MKV/ AVI/H.264…

    Freemake is supporting alot of formats, is easy to use and free. Not as advanced as mediaencoderhq, which supports more hardware accelerated encoding.

    In short it all depends on kbit/s (bitrate) and how it is used. You might use different methods to reduce size if eg there is no movement = low bit rate and so on. Effective codecs (ways to compress video or audio) like h264 and aac can be a good compromise between size and quality. Also consider what you are displaying the file on , because full HD (1920*1080 dots) is waste if you never uses a device supporting more than 800*600 or 1280*720
