Create Share And Play Videos Using Your Android Phone

There are moments in life worth savoring and in order to ‘remain’ in them, gadgets like photo and video cameras come in handy. This means you can capture your son’s first steps or your brother’s long awaited graduation and later laugh at the awkward things that you captured at the time. Did you know that your android phone can do all that? Well, here are a few tips to ensure you capture those precious moments in life for future references and to also share them.

Setting up

Start by launching the camera function and tap the android phone’s camcorder/camera to switch to video mode. Note, unlike when shooting stills, it’s vital to hold the android phone horizontally – in landscape course – at this point, given that you won’t find such thing as portrait mode for video. The default settings of your phone should work out just fine but you can smoothen out rough edges by pressing the menu button and choosing your desired settings in terms of quality, color effects, white balance and maximum duration. can you tap a cell phone

Shooting videos at high quality takes space in your SD card and so if planning to use MMS messaging to share it, you may have to shoot with the low quality. This ensures the video is sizable enough to send. Select the white balance setting if you are shooting several clips in one location even though it is automatically enabled by default settings. Once you are through with settings, hit the red Record button and start the shooting. When you are done with the shooting, hit the red button to save the clip.

Share the video

In your phone’s gallery, tap on the videos to open them, and then hold a video until an option list of how to share it pops up. The options may include Gmail, messaging for MMS, Twidroid for Twitter and YouTube.

There is the option of recording the video from inside the android’s messaging app in order to share the clip instantly. For this you need to tap messaging in the app menu and select the recipient. Press on the menu button to choose ‘attach’ then choose ‘capture video’. By default, the setting is in low quality and you have 30 seconds to limit your clip to an appropriate length. If unsatisfied, retake the clip and do it again. Once through tap on OK and your video will be converted to MMS format. Finally, tap on send.
