Freemake Video Converter can Reduce File Size Greatly

The videos that are exported by the RGR Plugin are usually very large in file size. Freemake Video converter can reduce the file size to almost 1/20 the original size without any noticeable quality loss.



As an experiment, I recorded Batman Returns for the SNES using the Mednafen emulator. The original size was 3.36 GB for this 16 minute video and after using Freemake, it was only 187 MB.





Freemake Video Converter can Output to almost any video format

The that are exported by the RGR Plugin when using the Mednafen emulator usually don't work with most media players (although you usually can hear audio). While these videos can still be uploaded to youtube without a problem, it makes editing them very difficult. Freemake Video Converter can export the video to almost any format.





Freemake Video Converter is Free, Fast and Easy to use. Download it now!

Notice

The program installer will ask if you want to install a couple additional programs (with the Standard Installation), it's recommended that you choose the Custom Installation instead so that you will have the option to decline those additional programs (the AVG Toolbar and AVG Secure Search Homepage and Default Search Provider).



Additionally, it's not required to install the Hotspot Shield.



Lastly, in the final installation step you'll have an option of Full Installation or Custom Installation, it's recommended that you choose the Custom Installation and tick the first box for installing Browser Plugins so that it's not checked. The Browser Plugins aren't required, and they'll only cause you to have unnecessary ads on every website you visit.

Davideo7 : Thank you for posting a thread with one of these video compressors and making it a sticky I'm sure it will limit all the questions we get regarding "My file is too big to upload to YouTube how can I make it smaller" lol

earthwarrior : I'm assuming you meant MB.

Jordanv78 : Yeah this thing solves both problems I mentioned my post, hopefully most people use it because I'll definitely continue using it. It's definitely the best video compression/converter program I've ever tried.

Davideo7 : Yeah I have to admit after trying it myself for a vizzed gameplay video I was surprised at the quickness in which it compressed a 17+ min file as well as the quality that it kept. I only tried it out for an NES game though. I will be interested with what it does for newer systems.

I think Freemake is pretty good, except every time I record with Mednafen, it saves as a QuickTime movie file and Freemake doesn't accept  QuickTime movie files for me. Also, the rest of my family members use the same computer I use so I can't change the default video player or they will have problems. Hopefully I'm not the only one who has that problem with Freemake.

PacmanandMariofan : I think can try to save it as something else. At the end of the title of the video does it say something with a period then some letters? You can try to change that period with letters into .avi or your preferred format.

PacmanandMariofan : Freemake accepts quicktime files, I'm not sure why it wouldn't for you. Either you have an outdated version or you're doing something wrong.

earthwarrior : I tried your suggestion and that didn't work either.

EDIT: After a lot of experimenting and frustration, I finally got QuickTime files to work. It's too complicated to explain how I did it.
