    Yea I can get that far but the file sizes are always to big. wondering if theres anything out there that can resize it for you without having to crop your video.

    Wow haven't been in the section lately. You need to record it for mms. Open video camera. Settings. Video res and change to vga. Max will be one min. Never had a issue doing that.

    TNTDroid ... What resolution settings with VGA should be used for MMS videos? Is there one that maintains some measure of quality while being able to share?
    In stock video settings, there's:
    VGA (640x480)
    CIF (352x288)
    Qvga 320x240) - What does the Q indicate?
    QCIF (176x144)

    Would the regular VGA work OK at the minute length, having the greatest resolution quality? Thanks!

    Tried it at the VGA (640x480) settings and only a 10 second lenth, but still "too large" to send via mms.

    Does anyone know if Vignette works better with videos than 2.2 stock? So far, the regular camera functions well with just the stock app, although on 2.1, I used Vignette to get quality.

    Sorry my bad. Use qvga. When you open a tex and click insert record video the default is qvga.

    I cannot change the resolution on my phone. Changed to MMS but will not change resolution. When changing to MMS it stays at 320x240. when I have at normal it will allow me to change. Anyway to send a video I have already taken?

    I'm going to reply to this old thread because I came across it on Google, trying to search how to attach vids to MMS on Android. I figure I'll post my solution so others can benefit. I ended up finding an app called VidTrim which will shrink your videos and make them small enough to send through MMS. I had a 5 second, 1080P video which came in at 6MB. VidTrim shrunk it to 240p size, and it came out to 133KB, with sound! The app was easy to use, and converted the video in 10 seconds. Easily sent through Google Hangouts MMS.
