Turn off Wi-Fi calling and go back to original messaging.

I have this same issue! It's so frustrating because the phone takes such awesome videos. Thanks for this tip, I will definitely try this!

Also, if you send through a text and not through, say Facebook Messenger, text usually requires the file size to be reduced.

Stop using MMS for video messages.

Stop using MMS for video messages.
How else would one send a video then not using a social media app?

Text or email a link to a Google Photos or YouTube upload.

MMS wasn't designed to handle the quality of video we expect in 2017. Or 2014.

It's a limitation.

And no iMessage iPhone to iPhone isn't MMS.
