SiliCompressor

A powerful, flexible and easy to use Video and Image compression library for Android.

Description

Image

It's usually said that "A picture is worth a thousand words". Images adds flair and beauty to our android apps, but we usaully have problems with these images due to thier large size. With SiliCompressor you can now compress and use your images more smoothly.

Video

Due to the high resolution of our Smartphone cameras and cameras from other devices, Video files have become large in size and thus difficult for it to be shared with others on social apps, social media and even when we need to upload it on our server. With SiliCompressor you can now compress you video file while maintaining it quality.

Credit
