We created MKVShrink as a companion app for people who use the popular MakeMKV application for their videos. MakeMKV is a powerful tool, but the one thing missing from its extensive features is the ability to compress video rather than just copying the video and audio streams.

MKVShrink fills this gap. It takes your large MKV files, and it enables you to compress your MKV file to something a lot more manageable.

Without noticeable quality loss, it is possible to cut down the file size of your MKVs by more than half.
