    Default Sending videos that are too large...

    Trying to help my roommate whom has an EVO to send a video that he has recorded with his phone. I own a Pre and there is a patch for sending videos that allows you to send files (videos) larger than 7mb and increases it to 25mb...or is there a setting on the phone...any answers are appreciated...thank you...

    I have read of some apps to bypass this shortcoming. I tried doing a quick search here and even ran into a thread comparing Palm Pre patches to Androids capabilities etc...however nothing is on the level of patches that are offered by Pre. Not trying to criticize Android by the way...just mentioning this detail. Thanks for the quick response...

    I am having this problem too.... I can't send videos via messages - keep getting error message (Video is too large for message). Is there an application available in the android market that can fix this problem.

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, it's a limit of MMS. You can try an alternate messenger, like handcent and see if it goes through.

    An easy work around would be to send it up to youtube and just text the link.

    Thanks - I did a little experimentation myself... and this is what I found... Changing the Encoding Type to (H.263) will allow you to send videos via messages. It then convert the video to mms file, thus allowing you to send.

    Tap camera icon - either tap or pull down menu tab - tap video - then settings - then tap encoding type and change settings to H.263.

    Note: If you're sending video via email - you can either change the settings back to factory default (MPEG4) or leave as is.

    Upload the video to dropbox and have him send you the link.

    Probably because the maximum resolution under H.263 encoding is 352x288, so the file size would undoubtedly be smaller. Try keeping the encoding at MPEG4, and changing the resolution to that same small size, and most likely you'll be able to send the video, as well.
