How to compress video with Handbrake


In this age of HD and 4K, videos seem to keep getting bigger, but our hard drives and Internet bandwidth don’t always follow suit. Whether you’re ripping your Blu-ray collection to an external hard drive, or just trying to e-mail Grandma a high-quality video of your vacation, sooner or later you’ll wish you could fit all those pixels into a smaller file. Happily, you can, with a little help from Handbrake – a free app that helps you compress video without sacrificing (much of) its quality.

I love Handbrake and use it several times a week.
