You need to set the video quality down to MMS (176x144) before recording the video for it to be small enough to send via a mms message. Anything higher should be sent via email.

How are you trying to send your videos? And where? To another person? Upload to a website?

I have tried to send the videos to friends and family.  I have even trimmed the videos from 1:00 to 20 seconds and it still will not send.

Are you trying to send them via text message or email? That was the "How" I was looking for.

also keep in mind that there are file size limits with email as well. what ann suggested (setting quality to mms) will work great for mms'ing videos. email will work for larger sizes. however, if you record a one minute video in HD, the file size will be huge. it may not send from your phone, or it may not be recieved by the recipient (many servers have limits on attached files of 10-20 MB's and an hd video can exceed set limits real fast!!!). another thing you may consider is setting up a youtube channel or using an app like Qik. if you go this route then you can directly upload to your Qik page or youtube page (very large file sizes) and simply text whoever you want to let them know you have new videos on the page that they can view. i used to use Qik a lot because i could take an hd video, it would automatically upload to my Qik account, and then automatically share it to facebook.

I use DropBox to get around the size limit of sharing videos and photos, I simply upload to my DropBox account and then send a link to the person that I want to xhare it with and they can download file or preview images easily.

I cannot send videos of any size via email.  Is anyone else having this problem?  What's the solution?  I asked this question of customer service and the rep told me she couldn't do it either on her phone.  She was hoping the ice cream sandwich update would fix this.
