    my phone is a droid running 8.something
    so I occasionally make short vids on my phone to send to the missus mostly.
    but in terms of file size they’re always huge.
    is there something free or cheap to easily edit the vids on the handset?
    or will it be easier to share with my pc and source software there?

    anyone got android vid editing experience then?

    Someone else will give you a better solution, but a quick & dirty solution would be to send it via Viber, it should reduce the size automatically. I just sent a 33 second Full HD clip as a test and its size was reduced from 83.7 to 4.33MB.

    ok it’s not exactly what I was looking for in the first place (I’m still playing with stuff, I’ll update later), but got to say that Quik is tremendous fun :D

    If you just want to transcode it to something smaller, the best free is Handbrake. But if you plan to use a Mac, make sure to install a MacOS version of Handbrake. It shouldn't make a difference in the final video, but it does as there are some weird incompatibilities.
    If you don't use Mac, then the Windows version will do just fine.

    If you want to edit, there is the free version of Lightworks which is a very good professional video editing software. The limitations of the free version shouldn't be an issue for your needs.
