    How are you sending it? I know Gmail and other emails have a restriction on the size of video you send!

    The problem with transferring files via webmail services is that the different services have different file size limits -- Gmail and Yahoo Mail are 25MB, Outlook Mail is 20MB, Juno Mail is 10MB, etc. For something like a 20MB file if you use an online backup/syncing service like Dropbox, Google Drive, Onedrive, SpiderOak, etc. they all allow you to selectively share files. You just pick the file you want to share to get an individual URL, and then email or text that URL to whomever you want to pass that file along to. (The recipient gets the URL, not the file itself, so this gets past any file size limitation. They just simply view online or download the file.). If you don't have some kind of backup/syncing serviced set up you really should do so now. It's not even a matter of file sharing, it's just really important to back up your personal data.
    For one-off file sharing there are several services like Hightail (previously YouSendIt) where you just upload the file to receive a URL that you pass along:

    This doesn't apply to this particular instance as this service is limited to 10MB file transfers but the Open Source Securesha.re service deletes all files after 10 views or 7 days. It's a public repository that includes secure encryption and it allows you to limit how often the file gets accessed. You can set the limit to 1 and then after your recipient downloads the file it gets automatically deleted (it uses Amazon's S3 servers).

    try to record and send video using apps like glide or viotalk which helps to send video messages of any size without using internal storage space
