I'm using Windows 7 (I know, quite old), but I'd like to find a video compressor to downsize all of my videos that I put on the computer from my cellphone (they take too much space).
Any recommendation? Thanks,

You can directly use FFMPEG from the command line, a batch file (or of course a python script), etc.
Once you have found a set of settings that work for your specific requirements you can:
I personally use MoviePy as a front end for FFMPEG as I find that easier than calling it directly (but then again it has been noted that I am a python guy).
I opted for Handbrake and I'm quite happy with it. Free and Opensource.
I use Video Quality 30 and the results are good, the size is downsized around 80% with good quality.
The only con is the use of CPU which is obviously quite intensive. I couldn't find the option to batch-resize. But anyways, it is already a good software for basic needs.
