2 Practical Methods to Compress QuickTime Video in a Breeze

Author by Kevincy Berel

Dec 5, 2019

Some digital cameras or DV take video in QuickTime Movie format, which is very clear in HD resolution but with a very large file size. Therefore, it is necessary to find a way to compress the volume of video files without obvious quality loss. After a period of trials, I found a method that is pretty cool at present, I suppose. Now I’ll share this tutorial about how to compress QuickTime video. Let’s get started.

It is generally known that MOV is the Apple QuickTime Movie format commonly used by Apple devices and most video editing programs. But you may ever experience that quite a few QuickTime videos are downloaded, recorded, or produced in a large file size, which are inconvenient in some cases, such as transferring, uploading, oversizing, etc. Apparently, a topic that cannot be avoided is how to resize QuickTime videos and make them smaller. Put aside the obscure jargon and over-professional operations, I'll introduce a QuickTime video compressor to make it extremely simple.
