    Hello, I recently came upon the problem with viewing or recording videos on messenger/txt. When viewing the videos, the image itself is tiny and it's difficult to see. I tried resetting the video player, it didn't work. I also tried to run my phone(galaxy s5) on safe mode fearing it may have been an app getting in the way, no luck. Is there something else I can do to fix it? I used to send and receive videos with Kitkat without a problem. :/
    Don't know how many forums I've already read, getting frustrated here.

    Since attachments in texting are limited to about 1MB, there's not much of a video you can attach. Some apps, rathr than not sending the attachment, or sending 2 seconds of video, make it tiny to let you get more video.

    The solution is to not text the video, but to post the video on a cloud server, then text the link to the video. (Texting wasn't designed to send files - the MMS modification was designed to send SMALL files. Only iMessage is designed to send larger files, and Apple isn't letting anyone else use the technology.)
