I want to transfer video files over the internet. I intend to reduce a video size of 100x MB to below 10 MB. I tried some apps, but they reduce the size down to 10x MB, not below 10 MB. Also, their video qualities are not acceptable.

Is there is any app that can produce a video of less than 10 MB with high quality?


My videos are around 5 minutes long. On a desktop computer, I use HandBrake software with these settings to produce an acceptable output:

  • Dimension 360 width by 640 height
  • RF quality 33
  • FPS 15
  • Video codec H.264 (x264)
  • Audio codec AAC stereo with 24 bitrate.

With the above settings, for example, a 700 MB video would become 7 MB.

I don't know how to set these values by any Android app. Is there any app for it? I tried YouCut, but I couldn't find any such settings.

    IIRC Handbrake uses FFMPeg. So maybe an app using a similar approach would be worth a try. Video Transcoder wasn't updated for more than a year, but going by the screenshots it allows you to specify values like you listed above.

  • Glad to read! Made it an answer then so you can accept it and others can see the solution. Btw, when explicitly looking for an app, Android.SE is not the recommended place, see Where to ask for app recommendations? (hint:we've got a specialized sister site for that). Usually, questions explicitly asking for apps are closed here; we counted it as "how can I" this time (answers recommending an app are OT, just explicitly asking for is not). // Enjoy your solution! :D

Video Transcoder seems to be what you are looking for:

  • transcodes videos
  • can reduce file size by manually adjusting parameters, as you are used to by Handbrake
  • "size-reduced" videos have acceptable quality, again as you are used to by Handbrake

Video Transcoder (source: F-Droid)

While the app is also available from Google Play, I recommend using F-Droid whenever possible: better privacy, and the only "store" where (until now) no malware was found ever.
