    My wife took a three minute video of me sitting in on a jam the other night with her iPhone 6S. She's trying to send the video to friends of ours and my Gmail account and is unable to do so..... she gets some message about the video being too long or some such other nonsense.

    If we can land a man on the moon, we sure as heck can transfer a 3 minute video from an iPhone to other people....... what is she doing wrong??

    Put it on YouTube. Make it private if needed. Share the link with friends. Delete video later if you want.

    The raw video is probably very large. You could run it through a free video compression tool to cut down the size substantially.

    Then plug it into the PC and save it there. Then email it.

    It’ll still be a very large file. iCloud sharing may be the easiest route.

    It might be the cellular carrier that's balking. Should be easy on a high speed land connection.

    Verizon.

    She was able to send it to our daughter (who also has an iPhone 6S) but no one else.

    A video of that size will probably exceed the attachment size limitations.

    If you don’t want to use iCloud, sign up for a Dropbox account.

    Open up Images on the phone, select the video, and use the “share” icon to select Dropbox.

    Open up Dropbox and share the video as a link with whoever.
