How to Send a Video Using an Android LG Phone

by C. Taylor

    Your Android-powered LG phone offers video capabilities through its digital camera. This feature can capture exciting or sentimental moments when still pictures are simply not enough. Couple that video feature with the phone's multimedia messaging service, and you can quickly share these videos with other video-enabled phones. Large videos may not be ideally suited for MMS, but if you have a Gmail account registered in the Android system, you can just as easily email the video.


    Step 1

    Tap the "Apps" button and then "Gallery" from the list of apps.

    Step 2

    Tap a gallery from the screen and select the video you want to send.

    Step 3

    Tap the "Share" icon at the top of the screen. This icon looks like a "V" lying on its side.

    Step 4

    Tap "Messaging" and then "Add Recipient."

    Step 5

    Tap the check boxes beside the contacts to which you want to send the video and touch "Done."

    Step 6

    Tap "Yes," if you receive a prompt that says the video is too large, and then touch "Trim" on the preview window. Doing so dramatically reduces the video's resolution for sending via MMS.

    Step 7

    Enter a message in the text window as you normally would, and then tap "Send."


    Step 1

    Tap "Apps," and then tap "Gallery."

    Step 2

    Tap an album, and then tap the video you want to send.

    Step 3

    Tap the "Share" icon and select "Gmail." If you do not see the Gmail option, tap "See All."

    Step 4

    Enter the recipient's email address and any message you want to include.

    Step 5

    Tap the "Send" icon, which looks like an arrow pointing to the right.


    • Sending large video files can quickly eat through a data plan and incur expensive excess usage fees. Before sending, connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot so that the video goes through the Internet, rather than your cellular data plan.
