Big electronics companies tend to go over and beyond with the commercials, don’t they? Perhaps bought in and went all out to spend a couple of thousand dollars on that mirror-less DSLR 4K camera. Maybe you are not in the industry of taking professional videos and photos but got swept off your feet with that smartphone with a 4K snapper. Oh, you will shoot 4K videos and pictures alright, but you will soon realize you will just as often be looking for 4K video compressor software.
That is a tool to compress your 4K videos to 1080p, which is a more day-to-day practical resolution. You may even want to resize your videos to lower resolutions such as 720p and 480p, but 1080 is currently what standard in most cases.
Why you need a 4K Video Compressor
People shoot videos for many reasons, but I bet we mostly want to show off on social media or rake in some money by sharing it to a given audience with the hopes of financial gains. The best things about 4K videos are also its greatest undoing. 4K footage, though crisp clear and full of details, make for enormous file size.
Forget about sharing 4K videos on WhatsApp or emailing it as an attachment. Even when it comes to uploading it to other online platforms, the upload might get stuck or keep on failing if you don’t have an internet connection that is fast and consistent enough.
If that’s not an issue since you a have a fast and un-metered internet connection, but is that also the case for your intended audience? Will your audience be able to download or stream the video without the buffering frustration? Who is to say they are not on a slower and metered connection and won’t shy away from your watching videos in an effort not to max-out their data plans?
Let us not even get started on the memory the 4K videos hogs. If you keep shooting 4k videos and photos on your phone, you will quickly run out of space. A 30-minute length video footage shot in 4K makes a considerably large file compared to the same footage shot in UHD or HD resolution.
Then there is the annoying fact that there is a limited number of devices that can play 4K content. There are DVD players, mobile devices, desktop computers, TVs, and gaming console that lack the hardware capability to play 4K videos. That means your audience is more limited compared to the content in other lower resolutions.
