As the technology is constantly developing, people are eager for better video quality. However, some commonly seen problems have arisen.

Why it takes so long to upload to social media sites? Why videos take up the storage space fully in a short period of time? Why large-sized videos cannot be sent by emails? The answer is: video size is too large and it has to be reduced.

Don’t worry. After trying bunches of video compressors and finally we’ve got the best solution: WinX Video Converter. And below I will share the details of the solution to you. Let’s check it now.

Why we need to reduce video size

Considering the aim of sharing video to social media sites like Instagram, Twitter or YouTube, large video size will either make the uploading process too long or even there will be errors. Moreover, different media sites and even email put limitations on the maximum size of videos uploaded. For example, users cannot upload videos that are bigger than 512MB. Therefore, even if you do not care about the lengthy wait while uploading, the video, at the first place, should be within proper size.

Additionally, limited storage space is also a problem. Not only the videos shot by people themselves need to be saved, but also films or clips they download from websites. But, without compressing them to smaller sizes, the device quickly run out of its memory that’s already limited.
