Choose the Conversion Options tab that will help you compare the input and output file parameters. Pay attention to the following properties that should be the same in the Input File and Output File sections correspondingly: Frame Size - i.e. video image width and height and Frame Rate:
If the corresponding values of the Output File section for Frame Size, Frame Rate differ, correct them by selecting the values which are equal to those of the input file from the appropriate control boxes.
To reduce the video file size saving its format means to set a lesser video and audio codecs bitrate for an output file as compared with an input one. Set a lesser value in editbox labelled as Bitrate in the Video section. You can also reduce an audio bitrate value if it turned out to be more than that of the input file:
If the selected codec allows to evaluate the maximum output file size, you can see the Max File Size in the Output File section.
Choose the directory to save. To do that click the Browse... button placed to the right of the Output File Name area:
Specify the directory for saving the result and click Save:
Everything is ready to start the reduction procedure. Click the Convert Now! button:
The process will take some time depending upon your hardware, the input file size, its format and parameters applied. After that you can find your reduced output video in the destination folder.
