Hello Sunil

How to Reduce Video File Size – Free Online Video Compressor

Recently I was working on a project where my client wish to see a fullscreen video background on their website.

I said “YES”, why not?

My suggestion was to keep the video length less than 30 seconds. But when I received, the video size was around 242mb 😲.

This huge size of video is strictly no for any website. I was desperate to reduce this video file size less than 8mb or less.
