Editors' Review

Free Video Compressor can reduce the size of video files with minimal quality loss. This free and easy-to-use utility handles most video formats; not just common types like MP4, WMV, and FLV but also MKV, MOV, and more. You can set approximate size targets for compressed files and specify audio quality levels to prevent distortion.

Pros

Basic but detailed: Free Video Compressor's dialog-style layout displays Video File stats like format, height and width, and audio, video, and total file bit rate. Options are also on the front page.

Size targets: Setting approximate Desired Video Size and Audio Quality levels helps the software maximize compression with minimal distortion.

Cutting and Scaling: Easy-to-use Cutting and Scaling tools can edit out segments or change a video frame's width, height, and aspect ratio.

Cons

Hidden Help: Free Video Compressor lacks a Help button but not a Help file: Clicking the program/developer's link accesses an online page of instructions. Clearer markings would help users who need the Help file find it.

Terabyte storage: Disc drives hold more and cost less every day; same for online storage, reducing the need to compress video archives.

Bottom Line

Dense video files are difficult to compress significantly, yet Free Video Compressor achieves results general compression utilities can't match. Old movie hoarders and other video archivists should take a look at Free Video Compressor.

 |  Version: Free Video Compressor 1.0

Pros

Works great, better than others and its free

Cons

It makes my i7 4790k run at 100% all just to compress a video and it was running at 98 degrees C with the stock cooler

Summary

It works but if your computer runs extremely hot while compressing a video you know why

"One File At a Time?"

June 06, 2015

2015-06-06 15:16:16

 |  Version: Free Video Compressor 1.0

Pros

Works great, no flaws but one.

Cons

It only converts one file at a time. I don't have time for that. UNINSTALLED.

Summary

Not worth it if you have hundreds of video files to compress, which is the primary reason one would want to compress videos.

"great quality"

February 25, 2015

2015-02-25 01:13:19

 |  Version: Free Video Compressor 1.0

Pros

1) You can choose a target file size and it does the rest.
2) I reduced a mp4 to 10 percent of its size and saw virtually no change in quality.
3) You don't have to know anything about compression. The only variable is the output file size. Just what I needed.
4) It really is free. No watermarks. No limit to film length.

Cons

None found yet.
