Hi, how can I send a video I shot with my iPhone to with myself of someone else that last more than 1 minute. It says "attachment to long" and I can only send a part of it. Also why is the video quality so bad. When I take a video and watch it it's fine, but when I send it via message to another iPhone or to an email it looks terrible. Thanks.

It will be compressed and of lower quality if sent via mms.

To avoid that and send a larger video, use email to send it.


Sent from my iOS ecosystem!

If you're sending it to another iPhone, why isn't it sending via iMessage?

Anyway, as suggested above, it's best to send it via email and NOT MMS.

As email attachments have a limit of 15MB (I think, depends on your provider: ie yahoo, gmail, iCloud), you might be better off signing up for a Dropbox account and uploading the video there, you then send the link to others.
