    Whether it's a 5 second or 5 minute video, whenever I take a video, I have to create a link to my video to share it in chat.

    Why is that?

    My wife has the same phone and doesn't have to do this.

    Is this a setting or something i need to change?

    Chat mode does not support passing video, a link always has to be sent,

    Your wife's phone is doing it for her.
    Video contains a humongous amount of data, and that requires a lot of time to send back and forth.

    For me, just to upload a video to YouTube takes almost 90 minutes for a little tiny 5 minute video.
    That is because my upload link speed is restricted by my ISP to about 500 kbps.

    My wife takes a video and hits share. It immediately goes to chat and sends. It doesn't show the create link. It sends it in seconds. I do the same thing with a similar recording length and it takes minutes.
