Why Reduce File Size of a Video?

The result of uploading a video directly from your device to your website particularly if it is a large video is that the large video will slow down your website, upset visitors to your site and detrimentally affect your SEO. If your site happens to have a lot of traffic and the visitors play lots of videos on your site you might end up hitting some band usage limit in your hosting account. When you upload a video from your device to YouTube and subsequently embed it on your site, the video will play on YouTube servers and not on your hosting.
