Hey, what’s up guys, this is Marques Brownlee here from MKBHD. And today, we have another freeware tutorial for you guys and this one is going to be about compressing any video format to be a much, much smaller file size. You might have noticed that if you are not a YouTube partner, you have a maximum of video upload length to YouTube of 10 minutes and a maximum file size of one gig. And recently I had a video, an unboxing video actually that went up to 1.37 gigs when I produced it in 1280x720 HD. So yeah, we had a little problem, we had to a—I was looking around for ways to actually upload this video and I found a compressor soon and I’m going to show it to you guys.
This one is—it’s available at the link in description DVDVideoSoft.com and a number of things after that URL. But you can see that there is basically a free Studio of different software utilities and they are all freeware. And if we scroll down here we’ll see there is not only YouTube downloaders and uploaders but the one we are interested in here is Free Video to Flash Converter 4.1.3 and this is actually the latest version at the time that I am making a video but go ahead get the latest version. So, what we’re just going to do is click on it and it will take us into a download link and you’re going to hit that Download button. Only 10.6 megabytes and now I’m going to show you guys, once you have downloaded and installed it which is fairly simple, how to actually compress a video.
So here we go, we’re going to open up this piece of software here. I have it in a shortcut. We’re going to double click it. And it actually opens up the Studio menu. Now, I didn’t download all 20 pieces of freeware and we downloaded the YouTube to mp3 converter and the free Video to Flash converter which is what we are going to use. So, go ahead and click on the Video to Flash converter and it will open up and here’s the interface of it. So, it’s a very simple interface, we have the input files, the output folder, and the formats. So, I’m just going to browse for a file that we want to upload or even if it’s not one gigabyte we are going to look for a file that’s really big, that would take a long time to upload, we want to just shorten that time, the upload time.
So, here we go, we’ll find a file here. This Matias Unboxing which actually I have not uploaded yet is 0.98 gigs so it’s really, really close to one gigabyte and I don’t want to be running that risk. So, I’m just going to open up that file, this video file it is .mov file and yes, this does work for mov, mp4 etc. And what we are going to do is choose our output folder and I’m going to save it to the desktop in the MKBHD folder, hit OK and we’re going to use the flv format. The flv format will upload to YouTube and will be actually processed much faster because that is what YouTube uses, YouTube process these videos to turn them on to flv format. So, if you are uploading an flv video, it won’t take quite as long to process. And then when we go to presets, we’re going all the way down to the highest–ultra high LAN Wifi bandwidth. So, you can go either very high or ultra high. If your videos are really, really high like 30-40 gigs you can go from high to very high bandwidth.
So, I’m going to choose ultra high here and go to edit. And since we want to preserve this HD uploading to YouTube, we are going to change the dimensions to 1280 x 780 and we are also going to change the frame rate to our highest, 30fps for smooth video. So, we have stereo audio, pretty much the highest bit rate you’ll need 1280 x 720. We’re going to hit OK. And this is where the magic happens you the video is begging to process or not to process but to actually be compressed and converted into this Flash format. All you got to do is hit this Convert button. Convert. So here it goes, the file conversion obviously isn’t the fastest in the world since it’s a pretty large file but I’ll come back to you guys after the conversion is done. And we are just going to speed it up here by going to high priority. So, here we go.
Alright guys, we’re back and it says the process is complete and the conversion was completed successfully. Okay so what this means is that the flv file is now in the output folder which we’ve chosen which is on our desktop in that folder. So, let’s exit out of the converter here and go to the exact folder. And here it is. We see a whole lot of files and most of these are not necessary so I’m going to delete them. The only one you want to keep is the flv file. So, I’m just going to erase the rest of these and we’re going to keep this flv file.
So, here is the original .mov file. You can see that at the bottom here this is 0.98 gigabytes just about up to the limit for the largest file size you could upload to YouTube. Now, let us click on the flv file and look down here. 68.7 megabytes and it’s still HD quality video. It will be uploaded to YouTube in a matter of seconds and it’s all about a matter of putting in the description fast enough before the video is uploaded. So yeah, if you do have a video or two that are just way too big for YouTube and you need to compress them down to a more realistic file size, then I do recommend this piece of freeware, again available at the link in the description if you want to go check it out.
Anyway, this has been Marques Brownlee from MKBHD. I hope you like this tutorial. If you do have any other tutorial ideas or requests, go ahead and subscribe and message me through YouTube. I read all my emails and I might even do a request video for you. I do, do request videos.
