Compress Anki deck .apkg file size

Project description

Anki Compressor

Compresses images and audio in Anki .apkg files to reduce the overall file size.


anki-compressor can be installed with Pip, but it requires Pydub and Pillow which have native dependencies that need to be installed. You'll need to include support for libvorbis in the audio library, since all audio is converted to ogg and all images are converted to jpg.

Once you've installed those dependencies, run pip install anki-compressor to install the command line script.


anki-compressor -i input.apkg -o output.apkg -q 50 -b 64k


  • -i: Specifies the input file and is required
  • -o: Output file name, defaults to MIN_<INPUT>
  • -q: Image quality on a scale of 1-100 supplied to Pillow's image processing, defaults to 50
  • -b: Bitrate for audio output, defaults to '48k'
