Top 2 Ways to Reduce Size of MP4 Video File

Way 1: Change Parameter Settings, Incl. Video Resolution, Frame Rate and Bit Rate

Video resolution: The video resolution is closely bound up with video size and quality. Higher resolution usually results in larger video file size. Changing the original video to a smaller resolution will lead to a smaller file size. For HD MP4 video, as high as 1920*1080P, it's recommended to reduce to 1280X720, 640×480, 640×360, etc for playing on iPad and then transfer them via Leef Bridge USB Flash Drive without any problems.

Bit rate: As for the bit rate, lowering the bit rate will bring about the decrease of the video file size. But please keep in mind the image quality will be bad in case you make the bit rate too low.
Frame rate: With regard to frame rate, it has a lot to do with the file size. the lower frame rate, the smaller size you will get, and vice versa.
