If your video is not yet in MP4 format, we recommend changing the format to MP4 as it is the easiest way to send and receive video files without losing the quality. MP4 is also compatible with a PC or Mac. Make the resolution smaller than usual, as it will take a shorter time to send. We recommend nothing larger than 480p, 360p or 240p. Make the quality small or medium.

Once you have chosen your video settings, you can now change the appearance of your video. You can crop, trim, adjust the brightness or colour, as well as flipping the video. All these features are completely free. If you don’t wish to alter your videos look, skip this step.
