    well, I appreciate all the help
    Just sending a link is very impractical, would be nice if there was a texting app that didn't compress video. I've tried them all, they all compress. The only option that might work is You tube, but I don't have a You tube account. Even if I did have a You tube account and was willing to go through that whole process of uploading and sending a link, lets be honest, it's not as good as just sending a video via text and I don't want my videos on You tube, even if it is set to private. I might be willing to go to You tube and send a link, but is everyone else? I don't expect every one who wants to send me a video to create a You tube account and then send me a link. Also In Group messages, I've found that if there is an Android user in the group message the entire video gets compressed. I downloaded Google Hangouts, I'm gonna try that now. All I'm saying is that it would be nice if on Android I could send videos uncompressed via text like I can on my iphone. That's a really nice feature.

    Hangouts as an instant messenger doesn't currently have the ability to send a video except via MMS (when using it as a texting app). It does support links to videos, including pre-fetching them - but all the video capabilities are links and/or MMS.

    Yea, I've not had a good experince with Hangouts. To bad, Google hangouts could be the cross platform texting app to replace imessage.

    I'm surprised that there is not an app for this. Like a messaging app that does not compress and is cross platform. Seem's like that is what people need. Google hangout's is really bad, can't even send video. Just surprised no one has come up with an app like this.

    How I know Telegram is not compressing anything at all. At least you got an option for that in the desktop client, not sure about mobile, give it a try!
