Mac screen recordings are pretty large and there is no reason you should keep it like that when you can compress it to 1/10th of the current size without sacrificing quality.

  1. Download Handbrake software
  2. Open the application and drag the footage into it.
  3. Select the format as mp4 and change the preset to whatever is most suitable to your purpose.
  4. If you are going to use the video for streaming online, check the “Web Optimized” option.
  5. Click on Start and wait for completion.
