Tip 1. Compress Contents to Save Disk Space
One of the easiest ways to make your MOV file smaller is to compress its contents. To do so, locate your desired MOV file and right click it to choose Properties. Next, go to General > Advanced. Mark the checkbox next to Compress contents to save the disk space. After that, click OK and the file will be saved in a smaller size version.
Tip 2. Select Low File Size Output Formats for Files
There are some output formats occupying more space, whereas some like FLV takes less. Thus, you can choose the format that has a smaller size. For example, you can convert your MOV files to FLV so that your files become smaller without any extra efforts.
Tip 3. Adjust MOV Video Frame Rate
You can adjust the frame rate and other specifications of your MOV file, as the lower the frame rate is, the smaller the file size is. You can do this on a free frame rate converter, many of which are available online. Just import the file, go to Profile Settings option and change the specifications.
