Can anyone recommend a free or low cost app for Android that can reduce file size of .mp4 files without incurring severe quality loss ?

Good luck. I have never been able to find a good Android video app. The big problem, for me anyway, was trying to save the finished file to a external sd card. Android file system sucks.Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence -Carl Sagan
Just use a computer,much easier to export to an android after.I think,therefore i am a hamster.

I've just upgraded to a no-SD card Android and file-management life is much much easier. I recommend it.
Well, maybe there is a workaround to my issue.
There are times where I shoot a minute or two of video at FHD on the smartphone, but I would like to email the .mp4 to someone without having to post it first on cloud server.
So I was hoping to have a way to in-phone reduce it to something emailable without turning it to real junk quality.
Is there a solution other than importing to pc and using pc to resize and email?

If you don't mind working with/experimenting with ffmpeg, like LigH.de mentions, I've been keeping this ffmpeg shell around on my Android phone for the extremely rare on-phone re-encoding attempts:

I think the more recent versions of Android require you to copy your videos to and work in a subdirectory of the DCIM folder, though.If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?
This seems to work pretty well:
Converted files save into the "Video Converter" folder.
