    Droid video uploads

    Today I discovered a few things about the Droid video camera and it's uploading techniques and limitations.

    I took a video of my son's Pinewood Derby race...the video was shot indoors and wasn't the best of quality.


    When I attempted to email or send the 5.8mb clip via text or Gmail, it gave me error messages that said the file was too big. Not sure if that was a Gmail thing or a droid thing. Kind of disappointing.

    Next I uploaded to YouTube and got a message saying the video could only be uploades using the WiFi connection. Again...disappointing.

    Another piece of information...apparently the 'share' option will only appear when viewing video clips inside the camera application and will not appear when viewing from the Gallery application.

    Love my Droid, disappointed with these limitations.

    Every phone I've ever owned/seen/heardof doesn't even come close to have the opton of sending these types of vids. Wondering y your dissapointed....also to upload any saved vid just long hold the video and lo and behold the share option just came up. Just to test I sent a 5 min video set to high quality to YouTube right now. Sure it needs wifi because its a huge file.

    Yeah I was disappointed with the limitations they set on file sizes. Can't send or upload files over 5mb.... I'm sure that's a limitation Verizon set.

    I disovered the hold long trick to share videos...but..the wifi does not work as it keeps retry..ing many times even when I am in a wifi hot spot. Is it because the youtube server is overloaded? Also on the share sreen it has a field for file name and in it is the video file name and I insert my personal title. Could this cause a problem? Not sure.

    It would be nice to see a Facebook upload option in the future.

    I'm also having upload trouble. I shot a 4-minute music performance and wanted to share it with folks who couldn't be there. It is a substantial file, and I waited until I got home to upload it via WiFi, but no joy. Also no joy at the office today.

    I'd love some guidance from Motorola or YouTube on why large files aren't uploadable.

    update - uploads enabled soon

    Had an online message exchange with a Google employee, who told me there's a server setting that needs adjusting - they'll handle it in the next few days or so. My guess is after Thanksgiving.
