Both professional and amateur video makers one of the main problem is the produced video clip size.These days every one got an HD shooting device in their hand and the videos becomes bigger than old ages. I too faced same problem like these because some of my hosts not support uploading too big files in to their servers so I have to look for a solution and finally found the best one to reduce the video file size over 95% with out losing quality.
