How do I attach a video to email?

I've recoreded a video on my Instinct, compose an email, and go to add an attachment. I can attach photos just fine, but I can't find the video I recorded ANYWHERE. Is it possible to find the video and attach it to the email?

Open the new message tap the "paperclip" icon on the top, attach from "video" then choose Camera folder.

Been there and done that. The folder is empty. Even though I can navigate to the video and watch it on the phone.

Really? Mine are all in that folder. Try this "Fun>My Photos>Camera>Tap the Envelope>Touch Pic/Video to Select>OK>Select A Contact"

Yeah I can't do it either. Email app can't find the video files in the Camera folder.

MORE INFO I just discovered:

If you go into Fun/Camera and email the video to yourself in a picturemail, then go into your picturemail and save thevideo, the email app can nowfind this saved video. For some reason, the email app can't recognize raw videos recorded on the Instinct.

On the subject of sending attachments, I was highly disappointed of the file size limt... making it utterly useless!

truly disapointing that the word "disapointment" has become synonymous with the instinct

If you haven't found a handier way, you should be able to set up your account at http://pictures.sprintpcs.com and upload the pictures or video to the web site (the icon with the up-arrow, below the envelope when viewing the saved pictures). Then from the web site you can email to others, but they'll get a link to view the picture/video, not a copy. It's also an easy way to back up pictures you take when you are away from your computer.
