Several nights ago I discovered HandBrake. A wonderful GNU freeware computer app with a weird name that you can use to reduce video size without apparent loss of quality.
It was the need to reduce the size of a 1.4 GB 11-minute video clip that triggered me to search for a better video converter after returning home from the Tarawih Ramadhan prayers.
And I found HandBrake! Using it I managed to re-encode the 1.4 GB 1080p video clip down to 305 MB, while maintaining the 1080p resolution. Down to nearly 20% the original size. Impressive.
This nicely complemented my collection of powerful, useful and freeware Audacity (for audio) and GIMP (for image and graphics).
