Keep reading to know why you should choose WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe for reducing the video size and a quick guide for how to reduce video file size.

Why do people need to reduce video file size?

Well, that’s a very good question! If you are someone who plays with videos on a day-to-day basis, you might know the answer already. But, as someone who is new here, we have quite a few reasons to make a discussion:

  • Frees up storage – iPhone users know the struggle of getting the pop up of “Storage Full” when they are out of capacity, and that’s truly annoying! Well, that makes one of the reasons. Phones, laptops, and other devices fill up with heavy videos, and at times you don’t want to completely wipe them off. Therefore, it is better to reduce their size to free up some storage.
  • Uploading Issues – Large-sized videos are of no good when you want to upload on social media. They either take too long or get stuck while uploading. Uploading issues also occur when you have to send videos through instant messenger or through emails. So, if you are planning to upload your new exciting video to Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube, or sending to your friends on WhatsApp, compress the file size to make the process a little easier.

Why is WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe the best for reducing video size?

Now, that you know why it is important to reduce the file size, it’s time to introduce you to the best video compression software “WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe.” This tool is quite easy, intuitive, and handy to use. And, it comes with tons of features to take away all your video sizing issues. Here are some of the key features that this tool offers:

  • Compresses all types of videos – You’ll be surprised to know that WinX HD Converter Deluxe accepts over 300 video codes and 50 audio codecs as input. That means whether you are recording with an 8K/4K camera, or with a very rare video format, WinX HD got you covered! You can reduce the size of MP4, MKV, AVI, HEVC, MOV, and many other common video file formats. But, you can also choose from very uncommon formats such as videos shot on DJI and GoPro.
  • Up to 90% file size reduction – WinX HD is capable of reducing the size of the video up to 90% (wow!). And, all thanks to the full control! You can remove the unwanted parts from the video, lower the resolution, or adjust the parameters (frame rate and bit rate) that will ultimately lead to the reduced size. However, I recommend that you don’t tweak the parameters (apart from the resolution) as these features are a bit technical. You might end up making your video worse.
  • Fast Speed – If you have any experience using any file reducing software, you must be aware that they either have max file upload size (mostly in online editing tools) or they take too long to compress. But, not with this video compression software! WinX HD is No. 1 fast speed video size reducing tool. And, the claims are obvious as it is powered by Intel, AMD and Nvidia hardware-accelerated GPUs. So, now bring on your large 4K video files and compress them for your next Instagram post!
