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.
