Compress videos to save storage, for easier sharing and faster uploads.
Size matters when it comes to video
Smaller file sizes make it much easier to work with videos, offline and online. They allow your website to load faster, save you storage space and can be shared much more quickly. Our online video compressor includes a batch compression option – perfect for anyone with many large video files.
How it works
The online video compressor with many useful features
No input file size limits
Our tool has been tested with videos of up to 20GB and we have had users report successful processing of even larger files.
Convenient output presets
Presets determine the video’s resolution, format and compression level. They are automatically set for web, compressing videos to be optimized for social media and other online use.
Any input resolution & format
The compressor accepts a wide range of video resolutions as input, including: 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p, 4K and other, non-standard options. We also accept many formats, including: AVI, MOV, DIVX, FLV, 3GP, MP4, WMV, VOB and MKV.
Clipchamp never has access to your videos unlike any other online application. Files always stay on your computer unless you make use of one of our integrated upload options.
Efficient batch processing
Our batch input option lets you select many videos at once. These will automatically be processed sequentially and saved on your computer or uploaded to Google Drive. This feature is available in Chrome and requires our Chrome extension.
Output resolutions & formats
Keep the output resolution the same as your input, or change it to 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p or 4K. You can keep or change the resolution to a lower one (downscale). Available output formats are MP4, WebM, ASF (WMV) and FLV.
