I have dozens of one-hour screen recordings from one year of Zoom Classes - almost 100GB of data. I want to minimize their weight and store them in a rarely accessed archive of my college time. How to achieve a small file size?

    Handbrake is great for transcoding large video files, especially raw recordings.

  • lossless-cut

    The swiss army knife of lossless video/audio editing

    I'd also recommend trimming the videos before you do any editing with them. It will be faster to cut what you need and then have it for converting, storing, etc. LosslessCut is great and you can use it pretty fast with just the keyboard, so it will help with your tons of files.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
