  1. I have found that any video longer than 10 seconds will not be sent. Although I did receive a notification.

    1. Hi Buddy,
      Thanks for coming.
      Have you ever managed to send a video via email in the past? FYI, I've just tried to send a 12 seconds video and it was sent successfully.

    2. I had to use a program to convert it before I could mail a video.

    3. Hi ACREE NEWS,
      Glad to see you again.
      FYI, each email services (e.g: YMail, Gmail, etc) have their own limits. I've just tried to send 20MB video from Email app (I use Ymail) to my Gmail and it was sent with no problem. I don't know with other email services, but when I attached more than 28MB video, my Email app(Ymail) automatically converted the video so that it could be attached. Other way, you can convert the video separately by using other apps or software (as you said) before sending it via email.
