Video Mms Mode Problems
Here's my problem:
When i record video in mms mode it only allows to record up to 20-22 seconds. Is this normal? I called Tech Support and they said storm only allows 20-22 seconds of recording as default and i cant change it. Is this true? I dont trust them technical support. Crackberry IS technical support.
I have 5 GB free memory in my card to use as video storage so this shouldnt be an issue.
All my other storms i returned had same mms video cut off at 14-22 seconds.
Please do reply to this thread. Any kind of help is much appreciated.

If you are recording in MMS mode, then yes, the most you will get out of it is 20-22 seconds... this is because there is a file size limit to what you can send through MMS. Putting the video in MMS mode guarantees that the video file will never be too large to send through MMS.
If you want to take longer videos, take it out of MMS mode. Then if you want to put them on your PC so you can email them to people, you can just plug your phone into the PC and transfer them that way.
Thank you. But this kinda sucks because a friend of mine who has an old ragity kyocera can record up to 2 minutes and send it. And here we are having a "state of the art" phone and can only record 20-22 seconds. LOL.
That kyocera can also generate more than 160 characters of txt messages and the receiver of that txt will get like 2-3 messages. My friend doesnt have to stop txt at 160.
Oh well i guess there is a price to pay for having a "state of the art" phone.
