    Hi, I recently bought a cheap Wildlife camera to try out in my local woods, after a few blanks i was delighted to see a fine big Badger and a handsome Pine marten had paid a visit to the location, I tried to post the short videos on here but they are too big for posting, my question is, how can i resize video to under the required dimensions?

    The free app Handbrake is one option.

    Upload to YouTube and post a link.

    fairly certain you can resize in VLC also.

    You may be able to copy/paste a smaller clip with the photo app on your phone.

    Hi, thanks all for your input, Flinty, i downloaded Handbrake to reduce the size and i managed to resize the videos i want to post, the next issue is converting from mp4 to a usable format to upload to boards, is there a (free) site for the electronicaly challenged that converts from one to the other, i did find an online converter but didn't give an option to convert to any format required by Boards.

    Tbh I've no idea what boards supports.

    Usually just link to YouTube myself. I use handbrake a lot.
