    Default Video is too big to send in a message

    For some reason when I record videos on my phone, I cannot send them. No matter how small the video is, even like a 7 second video that I have, I try and send it and it says that the file is too big for attachment. Does anyone know how I can fix this. How do I make it so it does not record and save as such a large file? This is kind of lame if I can't even record a video from my phone and send it to someone as well!

    Any helpful tips would be awesome! Thanks guys!

    Email it. You can't send the videos these new phones take in a text message. If you take the video from within the message app you can but the quality is not good. Or use a service like YouTube. Upload your videos, keep them non public if you want, and send to them threw YouTube. That's how I send my high quality videos in text.

    When I tried to email myself the OB Defender review video from my son's laptop where I did the editing, my ISP would not allow it because of its size. I had to save to his hard drive and upload to YouTube. Granted, it was almost 75 MB and a little over 10 minutes long.

    A 10 min long video is definitely a bit long. That is why it is best to use a service like YouTube. Glad you were finally able to send it.

    It's because u can't send like hd vids. U have to do this(or at least from my one x) when ur Texting someone u should be able to attach vids and pics u just do that and select to take one. Don't select from gallery.

    There is a setting in the camera that sets the video quality to one that can send threw text messages.

    It's just apple makes it much easier by converting the video on the fly when you want to send, instead of saying file to large.

    Please let me know what this setting is in the camera because I have changed it to the lowest quality setting that you can choose, and it still does not make a difference!

    Try using whatsapp it allows you to send videos that are up to 12mb in size at once. Thats more than most e-mail clients will allow and more than you can do via text.

    Only issue with whatsapp is that the person on the other end has to have it too. Its free so just try it and I'm sure some of the people in your address book already have it so you may get lucky.

    The only way to send a video as a text file is to start a text, select attach, select video, and stat to record. Keep in mind the quality is extremely poor. I have gone through all the settings on my note and the quality did not change.

    Or you can do as I do all the time,, change the quality setting in the camera and make a video. You don't have to do it as you said. The best part about it is on the lowest setting,, when you're making a video it automatically stops recording when limit for sending in the text is reached.

    I had the same problem. I found the answer. When the video was on in the camera I went into settings and then recording modes and changed to limit MMS.
    I could not downsize videos I had previously recorded but the new one I made was attached to a text and was sent OK in the correct size and got to the recipient.
    I had gone into the vodafone shop with this query previously only to be told I could not send any. They did not know about limitting the size either.

    Camera settings while in video, recording mode, limit for mms. I always hated this after switching from the I phone but you can't have it all...

    Have to have the option on the camera set to limit for MMS. It will make the quality crap but carriers won't let us send HQ videos through MMS.

    When in video mode, select <settings>, <recording mode> <limit for MMS messages>. The video quality however will be very poor. The MMS limit uses a much lower resolution than any other setting, thereby making the file size small enough to send.
    If at first you don't succeed, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

    when your on the video recording before you press play. click the setting button at the top left corner of the screen. it has a label call RECORDING MODE click it , then it says normal mode or either limit to mms. PRESS limit to mms so you can send it.

    I changed my setting on the video recorder to mms and it only allows 10 sec clips...is that the best I can do?

    Anything longer will be too large. Best bet for better quality and longer vids is to use a cloud service and upload and text a link to the vid.

    That's the way. I use youtube and I can send full HD quality videos to anyone. Don't know why people are reluctant to do this. You don't have to make your videos public. You can set a video only viewable to who ever you send the link to. Another benefit of this method is all your videos are saved there and not on your device.

    Note 2, it's true, ,size is everything!

    Goto ur settings when on the recorder mode before recording, goto record mode ( it will say Normal) chaange that to Limit for MMS.
    That should help, but remember I have found you have to remember to change the setting every time you go back into the camera.. It does not save the setting chnge
