Default How do I send longer videos via text?

Is there anyway I can send longer videos via text? I don't want to use the recorder provided in the text messaging app, the quality is terrible. I also don't want to upload crap, I just want to simply and quickly send videos via text messaging without this several step stuff.

Record your video before hand with any other app. Attach that video to your text message; 2 steps. HTH

I'll try. Use your camera app to record a video. When you send a text message using messaging tap on the paper clip then instead of clicking on capture video which lets you record a video tap on video which should take you to where your recently recorded video is stored, tap on that and your recently recorded video will be an attachmentt with your text message.
