Video Compression Guide for Windows Users
You may need to use a video compression/conversion tool to:
• Reduce the size of your video file for uploading
• Convert your video into a file format which meets the requirements of the assessment. The
approved formats include: .flv, .asf, .qt, .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .avi, .wmv, .mp4, and .m4v.
Please follow these instructions to download and run this free software tool:
1. Download the free software from www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/ and follow
the instructions on the website and the installer to install Any Video Converter 5.6.3. Note that you
should perform a Custom Installation to avoid installing additional software.
Please note that links to third-party software are provided by Pearson as a courtesy, and do not constitute an endorsement of
any third-party products or services you may access. If you do access a third-party site and/or software, you do so at your own
risk.
2. Open Any Video Converter and click the “Add
Video(s)” button to identify the video file(s) you want
to convert.
3. Click the output video profile drop-down menu in the
upper right corner next to the “Convert Now” button
and scroll down to select “Customized MP4 Movie
(*.mp4)” under “Common Video Formats.”
4. Click “Basic Settings” in the lower right corner and
ensure that your settings match those in the picture
to the right. You may also adjust start and stop times
(not pictured) if you intend to convert only a portion
of your original file.
5. Click “Video Options” in the lower right corner and
ensure that your settings match those in the picture
to the right. Leave all other settings at their default
values.
Note: raising the video size and bitrate settings will increase video
quality, but will create a larger file that will take longer to upload.
If you are having trouble uploading your video file, leave these
settings at the values recommended in this guide.
6. Click the “Convert Now” button. Once the conversion
is complete, the folder containing your new video file
will open automatically. Drag and drop this file to
your desktop, and you’re ready to upload it to your
portfolio!
