I got exactly what I wanted in less time!! Clipchamp was put to the test 35 mins after another app and still had better quality and faster conversion!

Loved this! Converted a 4 GB video file to 136 MB.

Super easy to use. Great quality afterwards (I honestly couldn't tell a difference) compressed my 72 MB into 12 MB in less than 3 minutes. And all for free!

Here is what's included

No Input File Size Limits

Your input videos can be of any size and we don't impose any artificial restrictions - we tested our compressor with files of up to 20 GB and have had users report successful processing of even larger videos.

Convenient Output Presets

Presets determine the output video's resolution, format and compression level so you don't have to pick these manually - though you can adjust settings if you want to. The default is best for web, compressing videos to be optimized for social media and other online use.

Any Input Resolution

Our compressor accepts a wide range of video resolutions as input. This includes 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p and 4K as well as other, non-standard options. We're preserving the aspect ratio of your videos (e.g. 16:9, 4:3) during the compression.

Any Input Format

Input video formats include popular ones such as AVI, MOV, DIVX, FLV, 3GP, MP4, WMV, VOB, MKV. Our compressor supports many more so if your clip is not in one of the formats listed, it's worth giving it a try in any case.

Privacy Protection

Clipchamp never has access to your videos unlike any other online provider. Files always stay on your computer unless you make use of one of our integrated upload options.

Efficient Batch Processing

If you have many videos to compress, our batch input option lets you select all of them at once. They will automatically get processed one after the other and saved on your computer or uploaded to Google Drive. This feature is available in Chrome and requires our Chrome extension.

Many Output Resolutions

Keep the output resolution the same as your input video's or change it to 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p or 4K. Note that you can keep or change the resolution to a lower one (downscale), not change it to a higher one (upscale).

Modern Output Formats

Compressing your videos involves selecting one of the following formats as output: MP4, WebM, ASF (WMV), FLV. While MP4 and WebM are good for playing on any modern device and for online use, FLV is for specific scenarios and ASF for use in Windows/Microsoft Office.

Very useful. I took a 61 MB file, compressed it down to only 3 MB & made it suitable for emailing.

Did exactly what I wanted. Reduced file size and kept image quality. Very simple to use. Will use again.

This literally saved me! I was having problems compressing a video for a class assignment and Clipchamp did what I couldn't do in hours in a matter of minutes!!!!

The best video compressor for any project

Video Quality

Compress videos at no visible quality loss (in the vast majority of cases) and get smaller files in a matter of minutes. Our default settings optimize your videos but you can also change the compression levels and quality options to tweak output videos further.

Fast Processing

Videos get processed in your browser without leaving your computer thanks to the unique technology we built our video tools with. This means that you won't have to wait for endless uploads before your videos get compressed and they are available much faster.

Social Sharing

Clipchamp comes with built-in YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and Google Drive integrations. You can upload compressed videos directly to these video platforms. This makes embedding them in other online services more convenient, e.g. in LinkedIn.

Smaller Videos

Use our video compressor to quickly save files on Dropbox, OneDrive or iCloud. Shrink videos to add them to PowerPoint presentations and fit upload limits on Squarespace or Wix. Share smaller videos through Whatsapp or simply send them via email.
