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 created video file was too big. Now a days every mobile comes with HD camera. If you make 7 minutes video, 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 file greater than 16MB.
