Why Do We Need to Split an MP4?

There're stacks of possibilities to have large-sized MP4 video files. We shoot significant landscape videos during trip, purchase a digital HD movie or TV show, and so on.

When it comes to uploading or sending those files over internet, the size and duration make troubles. Some sites prevent from uploading a video having bigger size or longer length exceeding the allowable limits. Some sites give a huge space but slow uploading speed commonly happens because of bad network connection or bandwidth limits.

It is advisable to split MP4 files into multiple parts to reduce file size and length for sharing online without hassle. Those top 10 video cutters (free & online) would be good to use that help tackle not only MP4 files.

VideoProc Video Processing

VideoProc Is Taken as the Easiest Way to Split MP4

VideoProc is a new star boasting its super ease of use to process various videos with the support of 370 formats, MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, FLV, WebM etc. It provides a toolbox containing multiple editing tools to help resize video files and enhance image/audio quality. Split is one feature included in this toolbox focusing on dividing a large or long video file into multiple smaller clips. We can choose to split video into segments in a certain number or by every X seconds.

VideoProc will output every clip split from a video as H.264 MP4 which is supported by virtually all websites. It means that we can split a H.264 MP4 file without re-encoding while re-encoding will happen if the original file is a HEVC video or in other formats.

Apart from splitting, VideoProc also offers some other ways to resize video files, such as cutting, cropping, adjusting parameters (resolution, bit rate, frame rate) and so on, while keeping high quality. Moreover, it is available to merge, rotate, stabilize, flip video files as well as add subtitle/watermark/effect, correct fisheye to help generate a better-looking resulting file.
