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..

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?
