Why are My iPhone Videos Small When I Send Them?
Apple’s iPhones are amazing devices that can capture beautiful videos, but you might find that when you send those videos to friends or family, they appear fuzzy, blurry, or very small. What could be happening?
Check the File Size
When you send a video, the video’s file size can affect how it appears when it arrives. To check the file size, find the video on your iPhone, tap it, and look in the lower left corner. Your iPhone will tell you the file size of that video. Here’s an example of a video’s information:
1920 x 1080
Compress for Sharing
If the file size is too large, you’ll want to lower the resolution of the video before you send it. This will also help your friends or family load the video quicker. To compress the video, follow these steps:
- Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
- Find the video you want to send.
- Tap on the video.
- Tap the share button.
- Tap “Save Video as New Clip.”
- Lower the resolution of the video.
- Tap Done.
- Now you can tap the share icon and send the video.
Adjust MMS Settings
Your settings could also be the culprit behind your small videos. If you’re sending videos via SMS/MMS (multimedia messages), the message size is limited.
To check and adjust your settings, follow these steps:
- Go to your iPhone settings.
- Tap Messages.
- Scroll down and tap on “Message Size Limit.”
- Tap the highest size limit.
- Now you can send videos of higher quality.
If you’re having trouble sending your beautiful iPhone videos, the most likely culprit is either the file size or your MMS settings. Adjusting either of these should help you send higher quality videos.
5. Is there any third-party software I can use to increase the size of my videos?
Yes, there are a number of third-party video converter and editor programs available, such as Adobe Premier Pro, CyberLink PowerDirector, Wondershare Filmora, and VirtualDub, that can be used to increase the size of videos. Additionally, your operating system’s video player may also have tools for resizing videos.
2. Are there any settings on my iPhone that I can adjust to increase the size?
Unfortunately, there is no way to adjust the screen size on an iPhone. However, you can change settings such as the font size or tap settings to make existing apps and content easier to read. Additionally, you can zoom in on apps and content, which will increase the size of a specific object. This can be done by double-tapping the object with three fingers or tapping and holding it for a couple of seconds.
3. What is the maximum file size that I can send in messages?
The maximum file size that you can send in messages depends on the email provider or platform you are using. Typically, you can send files up to 25 MB in size. However, some providers may limit this to as much as 10 MB.
1. What type of file format are my iPhone videos in?
Your iPhone videos are typically recorded in the MOV file format.
