Videos getting larger or only only slightly smaller

Post by martinmac » Fri Jan 11, 2019 10:54 am

My videos are not reducing in size or getting bigger:

HI all, I am quite new to video work I began using the software yesterday and compressed a a lot of videos perfectly with the default settings *they were recorded on canon dslr.
Original video example - h.264 1280 x 720 fps 25

I am now trying to do some more that were recorded by a logitech c920 webcam - When I use the the same settings the vidoes either get bigger or just marginally smaller.
New Videos - h.264 1280 x 720 fps 25

Im sure its something simple I need to change in the settings, can someone help please? thank you so much


Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




1.2.0:




Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Unlike your DSLR footage, webcam footage is already overcompressed.
You can gain nothing except artifacts by compressing it again.

Shockingly musicvid might be correct for once.
