There are a lot of instances where the raw video file after camera recording is quite large in size. If it is not on a server or URL, it becomes quite difficult to upload it to online sites like VdoCipher. To solve this problem, there are offline encoders or converters, or transcoders which convert huge video files into decent sizes without any visible loss in video quality. This video compression is key to the video processing system. Some of these tools can also be used to convert files into different formats for video and audio. Here are the details of the top 3 offline encoders.
