2022 Top Free Video Shrinker Program/App/Online Tool

That's to say, if we just do some "physical shrinking" by cutting video length, we only lose content with quality remained high still. However, when we change video codec, bit rate, frame rate and resolution with the latter two methods, the video will experience video processing during shrinking, which is bound to damage the quality to some degrees. Here are top free video shrinker you can use to shrink video easily without losing much quality.
