Frequently Asked Questions

I bought the Pro version but I still see ads, or all features aren't unlocked. What can I do?

Open the app and go to the app’s settings. Tap on the Compress Videos Pro tab at the top. Tap on the Restore Purchase link.

Assuming you did purchase the Pro version to begin with, this will unlock all Pro features.


How do I find my videos once they have been compressed?

Compressed videos are automatically saved yo your library as well as in an album called “Compressed Videos.” Open the Photos app on your device and look for that album.


I cannot select any photo, or I see a blank screen when trying to select photos. What can I do?

This happens because you didn’t grant the app access to your photo library. In order to fix this, simply open the Settings app, scroll down and tap on the Compress cell, tap on Photos, and finally, make sure to select Read & Write.

This will allow the app to view your photos but also save processed photos to your library.


There is a loading indicator spinning for a while when I select a video. Is that a bug?

This is not a bug. But if you use iCloud Photo Library, the video you are trying to compress might not actually be entirely on your iPhone, but rather just an optimized version of it. When you select it with the Compress Videos app, the app will actually first download it from iCloud to your library in order to process it.

A way to avoid this is simply to open the Photos app on your iPhone, look for the video you want to compress, and select it. It will be automatically downloaded from iCloud. From there, you can open the Compress Videos app and download it without having to wait for the loading indicator to spin.


Is there a limit to how many videos can be compressed at once?

There is no limit, but for performance reasons, we don’t recommend processing more than 10 videos at a time, especially if they are long videos.


My iPhone crashes when I use the app. What can I do?

This is a clear sign that your iPhone is under heavy load. To avoid this, make sure to compress less videos at a time.
