Video Format

Hello everyone


I need some help.  I recorded some videos with the incorrect format and these videos only allow me to send them to emails rather than send in a text message.  Now at the present time I have changed the format of future videos in order for them to be sent in a text.


My question is how can I re-format the previous saved videos in order to send them in a text message.


Thank you

Re: Video Format

My best guess:


I think both formats are fine but the file size is the difference in sending via email or text.

With the previous videos, you can try converting them to reduce the file size...

are examples of free video converters, but I bet there are lots more available on



If you give this a try, you'll have to enable mass storage mode on your phone to begin:



This should help get you get started.
