    What is the best way to send videos from the S4? I have tried to trim the video , but it still says too large to send. I can't email or message.
    Any suggestions? How is everyone else sending videos?
    Thanks

    How do they work? can you send videos to your friends from there? Why can the iPhone attach videos and the Samsung can not?
    Doesn't make sense.

    It can, but just like with iPhone (or most other phones), the video files have to be compressed for MMS . Make sure u have this setting on "Limit for MMS"

    Which is useful for the rare times you're near the person you're sending the video too...

    As others said, G+ and unlisted videos on YouTube are simplest.

    iPhone's can send large videos to each other because of iMessege, which sends the file through a data connection as opposed to SMS/MMS. You can send videos via MMS, though they'll be terrible quality due to file size constraints via cellular networks.

    Yes, you can compress the video for MMS. and In fact is is there. I have a AT&T S4 and the option is in Recording Mode settings. (just like Smooth's pic.)

    I have tried this before in order to be able to send it in a message but the problem is that the quality is pretty bad. I have the settings to the highest one and still looks bad.....

    This is a area that Android drives me nuts! For instance on my iphone I can record a 45 second video in full HD and can send it to my friends s4 because my iphone will convert it on the fly when I send it out via MMS. On Android if you don't choose the MMS option before you record your video your out of luck. Yes you can upload it to a service like Dropbox but remember not everyone has unlimited data so unless your on wifi that's not a really good option. Androids messaging has always been behind iOS, hopefully this changes soon when they integrate SMS into Hangouts

    WiFi direct is the fastest method. Just requires you two be on the same wifi

    I just found this thread after posting a new one on the same subject.

    My friend asked me for help, as he's new to a Samsung phone. He's trying to break free from Apple's chains, but every time he gets something like this, he's hollering 'can't wait to get back to iPhone'. UGH! Anyway, he sent me the below screen shot of the size of the video file he's trying to send. As you see, it's less than 1 mb, so there's no reason why he shouldn't be able to send it via email or SMS. But he keeps getting a "file size too large" message. An notice the format of the file. .3gp???

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    This only works when the other person is there with you. Not the same (functionality) as say text. Correct??
