I'm looking for a simple video cropper to windows 10, I mean something that I can download for free and crop to instagram stories without need a phone.

  • By cropping you really mean changing the size. Not trimming the beginning and the end? Aug 31, 2021 at 18:44

ffmpeg is mostly used by other programs tool for working with video. It is commandline crossplatform tool (there is no GUI), but it is very powerful and I think, it would work fine for you.

Here is the command for cropping:

ffmpeg -i "smth.mp4" -filter:v "crop=width:height:x:y" "smth cropped.mp4"


  • smth.mp4 - name of the file to be cropped
  • width should be replaced by desired width of resulting file's frame
  • height should be replaced by desired height of resulting file's frame
  • x should be replaced by x-coordinate of point you are going to crop from
  • y should be replaced by y-coordinate of point you are going to crop from
  • smth cropped.mp4 - name of the resulting file

I found the perfect and free answer, I was looking for a simple way to crop videos for instagram stories, and better than just a software I found the following online converter: https://www.kapwing.com

I recommend it because was fast and simple.
