How to crop video online free no quality loss, no watermark, no sign-up, and no pop-up ads? You need some online cropping tools to process one or two small videos for instant use, yet to find that Powtoon, Kawping, Clideo now all require that you sign up to continue cropping or to remove the watermark. Thus, hands-on tested several online video croppers, and we found out that the following three croppers 100% meet your requirements.

Part 1: How to crop a video online at online-video-cutter.com

Online video cutter covers the utilities of a cropper, cutter, trimmer, rotator, etc. Totally free and no watermark.

Step 4: Simply click the Download button to download the cropped video.

In the meantime, you can trim and rotate the video the way you like and even choose the quality settings to force it not re-encoding and remaining the same quality as original. For a single video cropping tool online, i'd say that online-video-cutter.com might be the best of its kind at this moment.

Cons of Video-crop.com:

  • There's no specific cropping dimensions that you can refer from, nor preset aspect ratios to do a quick cropping.
  • There's no timeline where you can drag to certain frames of the video. Video-Crop.com jumps to present several frames of a video on its own understanding. So, there's no way to locate to a specific frame for cropping, you've got to listen to it.
  • Part 3: How to crop a video online at ezgif.com

    Ezgif offers both a graphic crop tool and a pixel crop tool for those who prefer entering specific parameters manually to crop. Users can also lock the aspect ratio to one of the presets to make the video square, 4:3, 16:9, 3:2 and many more. Upon cropping, you can also choose to encode the file in MP4 H264/AAC.

  • Part 4: Online Video Croppers vs Offline Video Cropping Software

    Although cropping videos online could be seemly burden-less and quick as you do not need to download a concrete piece of software for the work, the fact is due to the need for network connection, video cropping online could be slower than your imaginary during uploading, processing and downloading.
