Every time I want to send a video to someone through texting, it's always too large. And no matter how much I shrink it, it's still too large. Is there an app that can shrink it down in size until it's small enough so I don't have to keep guessing?

Or is there a guideline as to how big a video can be, before it is un-send-able? Thanks for any input! I really appreciate it!

If you upload your video to youtube and then just text the other person the link that should do it.

Dropbox is another way to share large files:

I believe there are a number of encoder apps on the market
some that do batch encoding relatively automatically
going from one file to the next

this is useful if you have loads of videos to encoder

best video converters
I have had various luck with different ones

at one point i encoded some music tuition dvds
so that i could then loop play back some of the tutorials
when learning guitar etc. useful when practising

i believe i ended up paying for one
although there are some that are free
especially if all you want to do is send copies of your own videos

FFMpeg is an app to shrink videos

Here is information on it and a bunch of competitors or free replacements too:
