How to reduce video size to attach it to Gmail

In particular, each mailbox has a limit on the size of attachments, since using emails is mostly a way to transfer small data. For example, for Gmail, the video size limit is 25 MB and if your file is larger, it is automatically added to Google Drive, and a link to it is attached to your email instead of the file itself.

This is a small drawback, but not everyone wants to send files through Google Drive because then you have to clean it from unnecessary files. So how to send a large video file via email with no such complications? Actually, it’s simple – reduce the size of the video before sending it. With our tool, you can even do it with minimal loss of quality!
