    I have an Android phone, shot a video, wanted to email it, but it was too large, so it asked me if I wanted to resize it, I said yes, but unfortunately what it resized it to doesn't have all of the crucial information in it...how do I undo the change and get the original video back?

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone, and which email app? I would guess that the app wouldn't have irreversibly edited your original video file. Use your gallery app or file manager app to look at the video file (if you're using a file manager, look in /DCIM/Camera). Is the video file there, and is it the original resolution?

    Chances are, the email app didn't change the original video, but made a compressed copy to send. Email providers usually have size limits in place that prevent sending original quality video, and there isn't a way to increase it (unless of provides it as part of a paid option?). Your best work around would be to upload the video to a file sharing site like Dropbox, then email the other person a link to the file to download.

    I think that the app damaged the video. next time if you want to edit a video don't be lazy and use good video editing programs. For example, I can't send videos in the format my phone records and I convert them safely with verified apps.

    Hi there. I send the video to the cloud and edit it properly from my notebook. I don't really believe in video converters from the play market. I really can see that they make the quality worse. I use MacBook with mac os, but there is the windows version of the program as well. Here is the link https://www.movavi.com/videoconverter/

    Alternatively - upload to a location (NAS, cloud, etc) from which the video can be shared, then send the link for the recipient to download and watch the video at full resolution.
