What is the best way to share a compressed video in Windows 10 mobile?

Views: 637 Replies: 1
My wife has an online business and wants to be able to take videos on her phone and then quickly make them available online. She says that the direct sharing option to Facebook does not work for what she wants to do, so she needs to quickly get a video from her phone into a compressed format ready to share. She keeps complaining to me about how her phone (Lumia 950XL) sucks because if she tries to email a video to herself, the email screen literally just sits there spinning for an hour trying to send a 2 minute video. She said texting crashes. I showed her how to use OneDrive, which is the only option that seems to work for her, but even that kind of stinks from a use case perspective. I just uploaded a 51 second (130M video for her to OneDrive and it seemed like it took 10 minutes because of the size of the video. I can see what she's complaining about. String 3 of those together and you're waiting 30 minutes for 2.5 minutes of video. She needs to get a high quality compressed video ready for social media before uploading it somewhere. A good compression should be able to get 50 seconds of video into 10 MB or something like that. That would cut her upload times down by 10x. She swears up and down that she didn't have this problem (waiting forever to email/text/share videos) with the Lumia 1020 on Windows Phone 8.1.

Someone please help. I have no idea what to tell her. I'm not familiar enough with the apps available or social media to council her.

Thanks!

Thanks!one way to reduce the size of the video would be to record in a lower resolution like 1080p or 720p if the option is available in camera settings

Another would be to use an app called moviemaker which can reduce/compress videos which you then can upload to onedrive or email
