Specs: Windows 8.1
let's say i'm using .mp4 videos on my site.
now i want to be able to save these small files later with a better algorithm when time passes to have an even smaller files.
if i will use my current files will i then lose quality if reconverted?

hope you understand.

✔ Best Answer
Mp4 files are already compressed so there is a limit to how much smaller they can be made. There will also be a loss in quality.

Note that I can't vouch for any of the commercial ones personally or the websites they appear on - so take the usual care and look out for unwanted extras.

hi

1. FreeMP4VideoConverter is not good enough?
2. i've recently converted some videos in this converter but it takes more time to load than the vids that i converted few months ago. i've used a different settings and i don't remember the previous ones.
i'm wondering how to save the vids to work the best. (either fast load and good compression)
is there a guide out there for how to save the .mp4 with the best settings?

perhaps i just need to check other converters like you have mentioned?

There's not really such thing as best settings. Compression algorithms will vary somewhat. The smaller the file the lower the quality, so it depends on what you are prepared to accept.

Yeah I imagine any compression utility will not save all that much space since they're already compressed. How about just getting a larger storage drive or a second one?

oh
i just want small files because it goes to a small website i'm building.

the point is that premiere and others won't tell me the exact file size after saving it.

so i can't play with the settings of how to export it.
