How to Compress Educational Videos and Save Space with Movavi Video Converter

Many people like to store educational videos on their computers so that they can conveniently watch them and learn something in their free time. Videos can easily occupy a lot of disk spaces if you don’t compress them. Storing large size videos that are not yet compressed will cause your computer to have very few free disk spaces available. This can result in the slow performance of your computer, for example, applications constantly getting hanged and you have to keep resetting your computer.
