I have just bought a JVC camcorder. One of the issues with it is that it only saves video files in .WMV format. The size of the original size in. WMV format is 12MB for a 1min 6sec video.
Thereafter I have used a video converter software program to save as .mp4 format.
The video output (conversion) settings are as follows:
Video codec: mpeg4
frame size: 640 x 480
Encode Pass: 1
The audio output (conversion) settings are as follows:
Audio codec: aac
Sample Rate: 44100
Audio Channel: 1
The result is a video file that is 9MB is size.
Can anyone advise how I can compress the video into a smaller file or what I can do to keep video file sizes below 2MB as this is the max file size for 2MB. I am at a complete loss on how I would:
(a) keep video files less than 10 mins (recommended by YouTube)
(b) keep video files less than 2MB (recommended by YouTube)
Given the file size relative to time recorded, if I recorded a 10 min video the file size would be just too big to stand a chance of keeping the file under 2MB.
Solution to the above including best video output format and also any video conversion/compression software to resolve the issue.
