How to Compress Your Video Sermon or Service for Upload
With so many churches canceling their live services to go online with video, we recommend recording your services or sermon and uploading them ahead of Sunday. We've been hearing back from churches about how long it's taking to upload their videos. I spoke to one pastor and his service that they recorded came in at over 4 gigabytes due to the quality of the recording. Some church video recordings are coming in around 1.2 gigabytes, and that's still going take hours upon hours. Depending on your upload speeds from your internet provider it could take 8 to 12 hours or even longer!
So we want to show you a free program that we've been using in ministry for over 10 years that should greatly speed up your upload speeds: Handbrake. Be sure to watch the video for our instructions how to use this free video compression program.
