Sometimes when uploading or sharing videos online, you may get a failure message because the videos are out of the uploading (sharing) requirements, such as too long or too large. Then you need to resize the video so that it can be uploaded and shared successfully. Here, I’d like to show you how to resize video with HandBrake and offer an alternative to help you resize videos more efficiently.
Preparation: Download or update HandBrake to the newest version from its official site: https://handbrake.fr/. Then launch it and click the “Folder” or “File” button to import a video folder or a single video file.
HandBrake offers you two ways to resize video. The Preset allows you to quickly select a pre-designed option and you can also choose to resize the video manually.
Step 1. Select a preset from the drop-down list. It offers a wide array of presets including web, devices, Matroska, etc.
Step 2. Click “Browse” to specify an output folder for the resized video and rename the file.
Step 3. Press the green “Start Encode” button at the top of the interface to initiate the resizing and exporting process.
Step 1. Select an output format from the “Summary” > “Format” drop-down list. (MP4, MKV, and WebM).
Step 2. Click on the “Dimensions” tab and HandBrake will show you the window to crop, rotate, and change the video resolution. Just select what you want to resize and modify the related values. For example: to crop videos, you just need to find the “Cropping” tab and select “Custom” from the drop-down list. Then adjust the Top, Left, Right, and Bottom values. You can also compress the video by changing the resolution. If you want to trim the video, you can select “Seconds” from the “Range” drop-down list and enter the start and end times.
Step 3. Press the “Browse” button to select an output folder and rename the final file.
Step 4. Hit “Start Encode” at the top of the interface and wait for the exporting process.
