How to Resize a Video?

Last updated on July 12, 2017 by

In your daily life, you may have ever come across the situation when you upload a video to YouTube, but find that the video’s quality is too low. Or when you want to add a video attachment to an email, but unfortunately find that its size is not suitable to be added. In fact, a video’s size is not set in stone. You can easily resize it with certain software to get a higher video’s quality or to limit a video’s size. Many video editing tools and video converters have this kind of resizing feature, but some of them hide this feature in deep, which is usually not available in the frontend for you to use. The post will introduce those tools to you, in order to help you resize a video.

Ezgif is a free online website for you to resize videos online. Though this website is famous for its Gif making function, it also provides some basic video editing tool for you. When comparing Ezgif with VLC Media Player, you can find that this tool is more easy-to-use than then later one.
