Free Video Compressor is a very simple and handy application that lets you quickly and easily compress videos and reduce their sizes. There’s a saying that claims that best things in life are free, and this tool is a perfect argument that stands for the truth of this saying. Despite it’s free and using it won’t cost you a penny, Free Video Compressor is also one of the best tools to compress videos that you could find.
Free Video Compressor is very easy to use. It comes with a simple and straightforward interface that shows all the available options within the same, single, main window. In order to compress a video file you just have to press the “Open” button and select the video file you want to compress, check the available settings (audio quality, cutting, scaling), choose the desired video size, and press the “Compress” button. The compression speed is dependent on the size of the loaded file, but it’s pretty decent from as far as I could see. As you can see, even beginners can use this neat program without any problem. I particularly like the fact that it allows selecting a desired video size letting you know exactly which will be the size of the compressed output video before the actual compression takes place. The fact that it also allows scaling the resolution of the video (cropping) or cutting a part of it (trimming) only makes this simple tool even more appealing.
To sum it all up, though it’s pretty simple and straightforward, Free Video Compressor is a great solution to quickly compress video files. Its only remarkable disadvantage is the fact that it doesn’t support batch compressing multiple videos at once, but considering that this great tool is also free, this downside can be easily ignored.
