    If you are talking about an easy video attached to a text message just open up the text in messaging and click the paper clip icon on the right. That will give you the options.

    If you film something using the camera directly, the file gets very large very quick. However, if you access the camera via the messaging program (using the paper clip) and then film, the file size will be kept smaller. I'm not really sure what you can do with a (large file size) movie after the fact.

    If you go and look at the size of the movie you are trying to send, I'll bet you are surprised at the size of the file.

    I am not sure which carrier you are on but all operators have a max message size of what they can accept and also carriers have a max message size of what they can receive. For example, Verizon is something like a 2mb max upload for an MMS (pic, video, audio). If you are recording video in 1080p or 720p it will exceed that size in under 10 seconds. You will have to either send via facebook messenger, hangouts or something like that but not through MMS. Otherwise you can lower the quality of the recording video and try sending again.

    Hope that helps.

    I think, but am not 100% certain, also that the iphone will compress the video so that it can still be sent. Which in my experience, isn't really a benefit because the person you are sending to ends up with a very low quality video. Any videos I try to send that are even 10 seconds or longer, I just upload to Dropbox, place it in the public folder, and then text the person the link to it. It has worked out much better for me.
  7. Take a look at the "WhatsApp Messenger" in the Google Play store. That may be what you are looking for.
