    I have some problems with sending videos.

    1st: I can't send a 5 second clip via text messaging. It says I must resize it (what is the max 2 seconds???@!)

    2nd: I have a 1 min 52 sec video clip that I want to get on my computer so I can email it out. I can't send it via Gmail because it's too big what can I do?

    This is really frustrating and all the problems I've been having with videos and my droid are making me consider swapping it for a blackberry.

    Turn the quality down when you record a video, record it in video message mode

    Oh and yeah getting a bb wont solve your problem. Emails only let you attach files usually if they are less then 50mb or so, messaging is even less. So if you really wanna complain to someone call verizon and your email provider and tell them to let you send bigger messages. See what they say.....

    There are video size limits. If you select the options in the video camera mode you will see High, Low, YouTube and video message. Use low or video message mode. I recorded a video before I knew I had options and a 3 min video was 16Mb. I used dropbox to transfer it to my pc.

    I don't think you understand how large a video file is.

    Dude you have to take a chill pill. The "low" setting is probably higher than a bb's video capability.
    Bbm is the only reason why you could transfer a large file. That's what you are missing.

    Or you can always copy it to your computer and send it to someone that way or get Dropbox, upload it to the public folder and give the person the web address to download it. Really easy alternative.

    It's already on that. I figured it out though, I had to look under the "dcim" folder.

    Quick question for those in the video know realm:

    I have a Moto Droid (original) with FROYO on it. With 2.1 and the original one, I could make a 30 second video that was meant for MMS. Could send that file to anyone with a phone and it would play just fine. (Am on VZW and wife has a junky LG but not a smartphone.) When FROYO came, I put it on and now it lets you take a 60 second video on the MMS setting bu the video will not play on the phones any more.

    Anyone know of a fix for this? I want the MMS abilities from 2.1 back. Folks live far away and I send them videos all the time. Thanks. :motdroidvert:

    Don't know if that helps anyone.
