Compressing Educational Videos Using Movavi Video Converter

Many people nowadays watch a wide range of educational videos on their devices, ranging from helpful how-to guides to entire video courses. But if you’re storing and watching these videos, you may very quickly find that you’re running out of space.

Rather than being forced to pick and choose which educational videos you want to keep and which ones you have to delete – wouldn’t it be great if you could compress and shrink their file sizes? If you’re interested in that you’ll be happy to know it isn’t even that difficult using Movavi Video Converter.

As a video file converter, Movavi Video Converter will let you compress your educational videos by either using a better format and codec for compression, or adjusting the bitrate. In both cases the first thing you will want to do is launch the software and add the video by either clicking ‘Add Media’ then ‘Add Video’, or simply dragging and dropping the file into the main window.

Assuming you’d like to use a compression-friendly format, you can then click on the ‘Video’ tab in the lower part of Movavi Video Converter and select ‘MP4’. Generally MP4 with a H.264 codec is one of the better formats for compression, and should help you to shrink your file sizes considerably.

On the other hand if you’d like to reduce the bitrate, you can click on the output file size in the main window. When you do a new dialog box will appear with a slider that you can adjust to alter the video size. As you reduce the video file size Movavi Video Converter will automatically adjust the bitrate – but you should be careful not to affect its quality too much.

In any case when you’re done you can click ‘Convert’ and Movavi Video Converter will convert the educational video and compress it with a new format or bitrate. Honestly you’ll be surprised how much you can reduce the file size of your videos, while still keeping their quality at an acceptable level.

If you have some free time you may want to explore and play around with the other features in Movavi Video Converter as well. With their help you could extract audio tracks, create animated GIFs, or even edit and improve your videos directly.

Suffice to say Movavi Video Converter will help you to ensure that you don’t have to delete educational videos just because you’re running out of storage space. In fact it will do far more than that, and could even help you to convert your videos so that they are compatible or optimized for certain devices that you may want to use while you’re studying.
