    Funny thing I noticed today.

    When clicking on a video in the gallery it of course starts playing it.
    With pics you can press "menu" and the "share" option comes up. With videos when you press "menu" all you get is an "open URL" pop up.

    You can however when looking at the album overview press "menu" and highlight items. Selected items will have a little box with a checkmark and if you press "menu" again the "share" option comes up.

    But here is the dilemma, how do I go about selecting items without a working trackball? By pressing "menu" initially I can highlight one item, but then cannot move the selection box.

    The only solution I could come up with is to navigate to the video file in the file explorer and share it from there, meh.. Any ideas?

    Running Gingerbread btw.

    In the gallery, long press on the first video you want, and it should select it and put a check mark on all of the other pictures and videos you have. Then you can select multiple videos and pictures to share.
