1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have been taking videos with my phone and trying to share them via txt message, but evertime I try it tells me "message size limit reached" and does not allow me to send it. I tried it with a 9 second video and the same thing. Anybody else have a similar problem. Any and all help is much appreciated.

    I and many other have been having this same problem. After communicating with Google on googleforums, I've received this reply:

    "I've spoken to our server guys and it seems there was a size restriction on one of the servers that deals with mobile queries. We're in the process now of removing that restriction, and we expect that this work will be complete in a few days' time.

    "Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and it should all start working in a couple of days or so!"

    Very cool that a user inquire can get such direct and quick attention.

    Couple days from.... :blink:

    Any more word on this? It's the next quest of mine as my old Alias could send video :(
    What little the Qik app described, that certainly was not the answer.

    I posted the same question and luckily with the help of JONNY........I have the answer for you.
    Click Camera - Switch to Video - Click Menu - Click Settings - Click Video Quality - Change to LOW (for MMS messages) and you are done !!!!!

    Here is the drawback.....if you currently have videos on your phone you cannot adjust those settings to LOW , you are stuck with it. Drawback #2 the video quality is poor , but , at least now you can share your videos to whomever you want to send them too.

    Yup -- the default quality setting produces clips that are far too large for MMS. You can verify by looking at the file sizes of your existing clips via Astro or your favorite file manager.
