Difficulty sending video via messaging

2011-01-20, 21:58 PM

I have searched all over to find out how to send a video via message.

The manual says that I need to set the video resolution to low. When I go to settings, there is no low... only VGA, SD, HD, etc.

No matter what setting I choose, it still says that the video is too large to add to my message.

Am I missing something?

Can someone tell me which setting is actually "low"?

Solved! See the solution

In general, the lower the # x #, the lower the file size. 

You already know the settings, HD, SD, VGA, QVGA, and finally QCIF.
HD is the highest resolution, so it will have the largest file size.  SD is next largest, then VGA, QVGA and finally QCIF. 

The answer to your question is QCIF is the lowest resolution, thus smallest file size.  This will cause a massive reduction in quality; you could alternatively send the video in parts to save on the resolution and quality.

Thank you! I think I just knew enough to be dangerous, however, hadn't been successful.

The video I was sending did not need to be high quality, so changed to QCIF and it worked.

I appreciate the help.
