Video [Q]Best way to record, edit.. and compress videos

What is the best way to record, edit.. and maybe compress videos (on android) to store on PC or upload on internet.
Sorry for the noob question: Is a good idea to compress an mp4 file? Can I compress (lossy way) an mp4 video?
Or should I set a lower quality in camera setting?
1080p generates very big files.. And I can't send via mail/whatsapp or uploading to facebook takes too much time.
What is the best resolution/quality/size compromise on Stock Galaxy S3 camera?

Is there a way to edit (append) many video into a single file in a lossless way (android or pc)?

I hope you understand what i need..
Are You a noob?

1. Idk if u can compress it but I think u can.
2. For me I use 6 MP instead of 8 MP so tat my picture will end up bigger in 6 mp than in 8 mp.
3. Are u thinking of combining the videos into one or?

1. Yes but maybe i can set a lower quality while i record video, maybe it is the same result
2. Sorry, I meant video recording settings: I use 1080p and best quality.. But video files are too big. Is there a more efficent way to record video?
3. Combine more videos in on video.

1+2. There is no other way to decrease the video size unless u reduce the pixels or quality.
3. If u are using windows, use windows movie maker. Mac: Shld be iMovie. Linux: OpenShot or others.

1+2: I'm looking for a guide, an article, a post where is analyzed the best settings/quality/size ration.
3: It seems that Movie Maker is too lossy, am i wrong?
