How to send a video from android to email, WhatsApp, Facebook, and other media networks? I had this question when I made a video with my android phone. Because the created video file was too big. Nowadays every mobile comes with an HD camera. If you take 7 minutes of video, the file size will be more than 300 MB. You can not send large files through WhatsApp or mail or any other network. It takes too much time and bandwidth to send files. And Whatsapp does not accept files greater than 16MB.
There are lots of compression apps and compression software available. But you don’t have to use any app or software. Because you can create a video in lesser size just by changing video settings. When you want to create a video for WhatsApp or to send through email, just change your video setting and get a video in a lesser size and send through WhatsApp.

When you want to send video files from android, you need to make videos in less size by changing video settings. Just follow the below steps to change video settings.
- Open your camera app in android.
- Go to Settings by touching on the Settings symbol. You will see the below screen. Your android version may have different options. Mostly you may see the same options.
You need to change settings either in Recording mode or Video size options. Some Android versions may not have a separate Recording mode option. Video size options may include the Recording mode option.
First I will explain Recording mode options. Just touch on the Recording mode option, you will see two options shows that in the below screen.
When you want to create a small video, select Limit for MMS option. When you select Limit for the MMS option, you can not change settings from the Video size option.
Now create a video with your camera. It will create a 3GP video with 176 X 144 Pixel resolution. This video size and clarity will be very less. Even if it has very little clarity, you can get a watchable video. You can easily send this video through email or WhatsApp. When I made 11 Sec video with this option, it created a video with 176 KB shows that in the below screenshot. It is very less compare to the default HD option.
When you don’t like the clarity of the 3GP video, want to send some good clarity video in lesser size. Then set the Recording mode option in normal mode.
Go to the Video size option. You will see available options shows that in the below screenshot.
Select 320 X 240 option. You can also try all options by selecting one by one and check video size and quality. For sending videos through WhatsApp, the 320 X 240 option is ideal. It will give good quality videos in a lesser size. When I made 10 Sec video with this option, it created a 1.1 MB file with good clarity, shows that in the below screen.
