Top 3 Online Video Compressors
1. Ps2pdf - Online MP4 Video Compressor
Ps2pdf provides multiple online useful tools, and this MP4 Video Compressor is kind of one of my favorites. This is because it has many outstanding features. I would say it the best online video resizer. In the following, I will show you why through its detailed operation steps.
Step 1. Upload Files
Users can add the video files from the computer or other local storage, Google Drive, and Dropbox. One of the features which make it best is that it seems to have no limit on the video file size. I uploaded an over 2GB testing video file, and it works fine for me.
While, the uploading time is still quite long, about 10 minutes.
Step 2. Change Compress Options
This part is kind of the biggest difference from other online tools that we have tested. There, users can adjust the output format, (even though there is only MP4 option, hahaha...), video codec with H.264 and H.265, exact video output size, compressing method where you can choose the low or high output quality, and the resolution.
Step 3. Start Compress Process
After you set all the parameters totally as you want, you just need to click on the Compress Now button. While, the processing time is also quite long, about 30 minutes for my 2GB testing video file. During that period, there are compressing failures for two times.
Additional information about Ps2pdf - Online MP4 Video Compressor,
1. This tool is free. It would charge you no fee, but with ADs. However, you can disable the ads since there is a button at the bottom of the website. It claims that ADs help them keep the service free, so I would never use the button.
This one is about its Terms of Service, especially the fourth one, Limitations. As same as other online tools, there is a possibility that the video file would be damaged.
3.There are no operation features for the audio file in the video.
2. Onlineconverter - Video Compressor
Easy-to-use must be the biggest feature of this online tool. As you see from the image above, there you just need to add the video file, and then you can click the Compress button to start to resize it.
You can upload the video file saved on the computer, but also simply input the URL to compress the online video file. Compared to the first one, there is no possibility of adding the file saved in the cloud, like Google Drive and Dropbox. And the maximum original size of the video file is 200MB.
However, if you have an exact number for the output video size, you can directly set it in the Desired Video Size box. But you need to notice that the desired video size is never less than 30% of the original video size, or the mission will fail. The biggest difference from or better feature than the first online tool is that you can choose the audio quality with options of auto, 32kbps, 48kbps, 64kbps, 96kbps, 128kbps, and no sound. If the original audio bitrate is less than 32kbps, you cannot upgrade it to 48kbps or higher. This tool is just for compression, not a quality enhancer. But you can set it to no sound, which means removing the audio file.
Sill, similar to the first tool, what we care about this tool is its Terms of Service.
As you see, in its Terms, it points out that there are possibilities for data deleting, missing, and leaking. Again, we need to watch out for the data security issue of these online video compressors.
3. Clideo - Video Compressor
I love the interface of this tool. Its design is beautiful in its simplicity.
After you upload the video file to it, it will automatically start the job. You can upload files from the computer, Google Drive, Dropbox, and even the URL way. About this feature, it seems a combination of the two tools mentioned above.
The maximum video file size to compress for free is 500MB. If the video file is bigger, you need to upgrade your free account a paid one, $72 for one year, or $99 for a lifetime.
That must be a little more expensive than the professional desktop applications. While the desktop tools have more features to polish your videos.
Besides, when we were testing it, we found that its uploading speed is very slow, the worst one among these three reviewed tools.
And most importantly, all of these three tools do not support multiple tasks at one time.
