How to compress a video on android phone ?


compress a video

You may have a huge collection of videos on your android phone and do not want to delete them. But android has a limited storage capacity, whereas you will not continually watch the videos all the time. The best solution is to save the videos (which you rarely watch) on a laptop or PC, but if you still want to save the videos on your android phone, you can compress them to save Android phone storage.

Advantage :
-Save storage space
-Can save more video in smart phones
-Simplify and accelerate when sharing videos on social media websites

Disadvantages :
-Compress a video may take some time in accordance with file size and it's duration
-Reduced video quality, I do not recommend these if the videos are important and becomes a problem when the quality is becoming worse.

How to compress a video on Android Phone ?
1. We recommend that you backup all the videos that you want to compress on a laptop/PC or save them on external hard drive/Flashdisk/CD
2. Download the video compress application in PlayStore,
-Open the Google playstore app in your android phone
-Type the keywords “video compress” in the search box, there are many applications there, select and choose an application that has good ratings (4 stars and above) as well as a good review.
For example: Inshot-Video Editor Music, Cut, No Crop
(This website has no affiliation with the above applications, you can choose other applications as needed)
-Download the application
3. Open the video compress app
4. Select a video to be compressed
5. Select a feature and effects as you need, different application can have a different feature, or you can search video compress menu on app

For Inshot app, after selecting the video you can directly save the video,
-select save, select customize, change video size between 120P up to 1080P, type a size smaller than the original size of your video res, e.g. 120P, 240P or 320P
6. Wait until the conversion process has finished
7. Check your video collection, now you have 2 same video but different sizes (you can find compressed video on app output folder), check out the output video to see the quality, check properties to see the file size, after you are satisfied with the results of video conversion, you can delete the original video.

Good luck
