    I had the same problem for a while.you have to lower the video quality to low, and lower the duration to 30 seconds.

    Just wondering if you take a video in the highest quality setting, not thinking of sending it via MMS, but then decided you wanted to send it. Is there a way to compress/downgrade it for that purpose. Or is there an app to help out in that way?

    Answer is posted above but have you looked at the file sizes of full quality videos?

    Seems like there would be a reencoder out there. I haven't looked myself. I use GV for messaging so MMS is out of the question anyway.

    The fact that I can't even take a video of lowest quality setting offered by the phone for 10sec or less and send it to another Droid (supposedly these super advanced phones) on the same network is quite frustrating. I thought this was supposed to be the future of phones.

    I have no problem doing it... :confused: I guess my phone's future is shaping up better than yours?
    In all seriousness, if you have your MMS settings (both length and quality) set correctly, you should be able to send them. If you can't, you must have some setting or hardware problem or other app interference...

    I found another setting that will help. I'm using Handcent, so your mileage may very. In Handcent's settings find maximum MMS size, and change it to 1meg. Default is 300 k. Helped out a lot!

    Android SendIT


    You can use Android SendIT ... I found it in the market I searched for email video I think it was the 2nd one down ... but it lets you send any sized video to anyones email address

    It worked perfect for me ... dancedroid

    Email size limitations have absolutely NOTHING to do with the mail client and everything to do with the mail server (both for sending the message and for receiving the message). Most places have a limit of 10 Mb of size on the message, however, Gmail's is apparently a bit larger than that: Maximum attachment size - Gmail Help

    However, this thread is for sending text messages anyways, not email.
