Shrink your MKV file size.

MKVShrink uses various adjustments and compression features to reduce the file size of your MKV files considerably.

The MKV video file format is very diverse, making it one of the best backup options for video content found on physical formats such as DVD and Bluray. While these backups are often identical in video and audio quality as the original source, the file-size of MKV files is often quite large, reducing the amount of files you can fit on a storage medium such as a harddrive or a memory card/stick. MKVShrink enables you to make your MKV files smaller in file size, and, if needed, optimize them for compatibility with devices and applications.

Note: MKVShrink does not convert copy-protected content.

You can drag & drop supported (unprotected mkv, m2ts, mts, avi, mp4 and m4v) video files and folders with video files onto MKVShrink, and it will sort through what it can handle, or you can use the top-left content buttons instead.


4. After adding your video content, MKVShrink will perform a short scan to determine its video, audio and subtitle contents and provide access to the different settings for the individual items.


From here, you can either make some individual tweaks, such as increasing the quality settings for a favorite video, or simply press the start-button
to have MKVShrink do its thing.


After the process is completed, MKVShrink will open up the video folder where it stored the created video.
