Default [Q] Can't attach a video

When I shoot a video I can't attach it to my email using Gmail. I keep getting message "file is too large". I am able to attach the same file using Yahoo mail. Can this be fixed for Gmail.

I also tried first composing an email and then attaching a video but when I click "attach" I cannot find my videos only pictures. Where are all the videos stored?

Thanks,

Mac

Videos are stored on the sdcard in the same place as the pictures:

/sdcard/DCIM/Camera

The videos are named in this format: VID_20110101_143547.3gp
Wiping battery stats has the same influence over battery life as waving a dead chicken over your phone does; none, per Google.
If your sig takes up more screen real estate than most of your posts, maybe you should trim it a bit...

Thanks. That's what I thought. But why after I write an email and click "attach" I only see pictures and no videos?

Also, why right after shooting a video, when i try to attach it in my gmail, the file is too big and won't attach? The same file works fine with yahoo mail.

Thanks
