Default Cannot Send Video Messages on Galaxy S4

Hello everyone! I am pretty new to the android operating system. Had an iphone for 2 years and before then a blackberry. I am having a hard time sending video messages to friends and family. When I record a video and go to send it via text I get an error saying the file is too large and gives me alternative choices such as email, etc. Is there a way I can fix this issue? Any help and suggestions would be great!

I moved you over to the S4 forum so the good folks with your device can lend you a hand.

In your video app settings, select the option for "limit for mms".
This should help your problem as it will keep the file size small.

alternatively, you can start the video recorder from inside of the messaging app and it will limit the size also. Just click on the paper clip for the attachment and select the camera.
