    Video compress and email straight from phone - possible?

    I am coming from an iPhone 4 in which I could capture a video and email it straight from the phone. The video would be decent in size to be emailed out. Is this possible on the Atrix? Should I just choose a lower res video in the capture settings? I have been capturing at 720p and these videos are too large to email out (1 min = 100 MB). What is the best way? I tried Qik for Atrix and am not pleased with it. The website takes a while to load uploaded video and those taken in portrait orientation show up in landscape (rotated by 90 degree).

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    I actually ran in to this shortly after getting the phone. While the HD recording is great, it's definitely inconvenient for sharing. I set mine down to the VGA setting to be able to send videos around 30 seconds or less via email. The auto compression the phone does prior to sending didn't produce good results for me.

    Additionally, if you want to send video through text you will need to do it from the app itself, that way it automatically puts the setting on a low resolution for easy upload.

    Edit: in fact, if you know you want to send a video to email you can start by opening a new e-mail, select attach and then select camera, or camcorder, it sets the resolution down to 1mp automatically. So, you have a choice, you can set your camcorder to 1mp so that you can always send without trouble or open an e-mail first.

    Nice tip! I had never tried that, good to know it works that way.

    Thanks for the replies....I guess I have to step down the video resolution. Or upload the video to a PC and share it from there somehow.
