Compress your large videos with Handbrake

Handbrake is a free tool that can help you reduce your video resolution and overall size to optimize it for the web.

Tools like Handbrake will output a high-quality video that is a reasonable length, while keeping you under the 2 GB limit for the Ruzuku platform (or 4 GB if you are a Pro member)

Here are screenshots of the settings we use for Handbrake:

Note: You'll need to go to both the Summary tab and the Video tab.

After you have these settings selected, click the green "Start" arrow at the top (see the 2nd screenshot above). 

That will begin the process of encoding the video.

After the file is finished compressing, upload the new file into the activity (if you're not sure where it's saved on your computer, you can see the folder pathway at the bottom right-hand side of the Handbrake screen).

If you get stuck at any point, feel free to reach out to our support team ( and we'll be happy to help you!
