I usually upload videos to YouTube , my own videos, related to computers tips and Game. I use BSR screen recorder to record my computer screen. These screen recorders are record videos in avi or .mp4 formats , but they are larger in size , we can’t upload it directly , for 20 minute video size become raised to 300- 400 mb. It is very difficult to upload , it took around 45- 1 hr.  

How to reduce the size ?

If we can reduce the size we can upload it within minutes , there are many software’s available to reduce the size some software reduce the size but they also reduce the quality.

WebM is one of the best format to upload video , because webm videos has high quality and lesser in size. We can convert 200-300 MB avi file to 60-100 MB webm file without loosing quality.
