4. That's it! ‍

How do I make a video file smaller for YouTube?


If your video files are large, you can compress them using VEED’s video compression tool and convert them to MP4 - the preferred format of YouTube.

Does compressing a video reduce quality?


It depends on the compression settings that you choose before compressing your video. Naturally, the higher the quality you set, the larger the file would be. However, the MP4 format is a lot smaller than most other video file types. So you can get high quality video at a smaller file size.

How large is a 10-minute YouTube video?


At Standard settings, a 10-minute YouTube video can be anywhere from 240MB or higher. If a video is set to High Definition (HD), the approximate file size is 88MB per minute. This will be the file size if you retain the settings when you download the video from YouTube. That’s why it’s best to compress them using VEED platform before saving or uploading them to YouTube


Can I change bitrate, frames per second (FPS), resolution and CRF?


If you’re looking for a more advanced set of options, and you wish to control CRF, bitrate, resolution and FPS, then simply click on ‘Advanced Settings’. In this menu you will be able to adjust the video compression options to your exact specifications. Under ‘Resolution’ you will be able to choose from 480p, 720p, 1080p, 4k and more.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Quotation Mark - What they say about VEED

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

I love using VEED as the speech to subtitles transcription is the most accurate I've seen on the market.

It has enabled me to edit my videos in just a few minutes and bring my video content to the next level

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software!

I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there.

It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
