    I'm sorry if this was talked about but I couldn't find it if it was. In short, I cannot send any videos I record, no matter how short, via MMS...only email. This is a problem and I'm sure I'm missing something. Whenever I got to attach a video, it says I've exceeded my size or something, yet I have my MMS Sent option set to it's maximum. Any help, please! Having an adorable 4 year old, I've got to be able to send videos to family. :)

    Thanks in advance,
    Joe

    I have the same issues when trying to send a video I made using the camera application (I think most of us have same issue). The best way to send a video is to add a new video from your messages and send it. (go into your Messages>menu>attach>video>camcorder) That is the only way i have found that it works, but that means you can only send videos that you record on the spot and at a lower quality.
    If anyone else has found another way, let me know.

    Wow! Thanks for your help, but boy, that is just unacceptable. That just doesn't seem right.

    No problem, you also might want to try changing to lower resolutions and taking a short video with the camera app, this might work but again you get stuck with a low res video.

    Yeah, I have to second that. I send MMS videos all the time to family and this annoys me to no end. Also, I use Handcent and there is no way to attach via the Camcorder so I have to use both clients.

    There really should just be a simple option in the camcorder settings to record in MMS mode. That way you can easily take a few videos and then choose the one you want to send at a later time.

    Anyone out there know any other way to record in a restricted MMS mode only? Perhaps an app?

    I was having a similar issue.I was told by HTC CS that the best way to record is for me to open the message or mail, add attachment, video, from camera and start recording from there so I don't exceed the limit the message can handle. They also suggested I keep the Resolution of QVGA (320x240) and MPEG4 Encoding type.
    It can be a pain to point and shoot quick video but now I leave my vid camera settings on the 320x240 setting just in case because chances are if I want to record something really nicely, I'll have time to adjust the resolution. :) HTH!

    Extra note, in this manner I am allowed a full minute of recording to send in texts before it says I'll reach my limit.
    The camera will do a countdown backwards if you use this way instead of the standard counting forward in time.
    You want max message size to be the 1.2 M. Mine's set for phone storage. Keeping the video resolution at the QVGA allows me to take quick video if I need to.
    I cannot seem to get my Handcent to take video like I said before but if I record within about the same time as I would have for the standard messaging app, I can still attach and send to friends over text. I imagine the same for email although it's super rare I email a video. If you record through the video app itself and choose share, you can CHOOSE Handcent to make it easier to send rather than having to attach.

    You know...I could have sworn that I tried that months ago when I got this phone and it didn't work. I just tried shooting some videos in QVGA 320x240 without attaching from camcorder within the messaging app, and it allowed me to send via messages. Nice! The ultimate in awesome (other than larger MMS allowance) would be if we could just leave it on any video setting and it would compress into MMS like photos.

    I'm still having issues with Handcent and MMS but that is another topic.

    I have been using a free app to send photo and video without any file size limit. Highly recommended YouCast for Android

    does it work with all types of messaging, and does your recipient need to have YouCast also. The app doesn't seem to have much feed back or endorsements.

    You are right. Does not have much feedback from users, even it is free.

    To have 'push' work, the recipient need to have YouCast too. Currently, there are YouCast for android, BlackBerry and Java Mobile. But if you send to an email address, the recipient will receive a message containing links for download the files. It will probably fail if the recipient try to click the link at mobile device. But should work at PC or MAC.

    The big difference here is 'push' or 'click to download'
