Most video we shoot these days is at 1080p, or high definition. On average, 1gb of 1080 footage lasts around half an hour, but with video compression tools we can make that lone gigabyte last way longer without sacrificing much quality.
If you’re on a Mac, you have a couple options. Quicktime is the default video player, and it lets you scale down your video just by clicking File > Export as… > and then selecting your desired quality. 720p should be small enough, and as you can see the difference is almost invisible.
Movie Maker on Windows and iMovie on Mac are also both free and offer more control over the final video size when you go to export. If you’re a little more tech savvy, or just don’t want to download a full-fledged video editing app, Handbrake is another great free option for any platform.
