    iPad2 videos sent via email lose quality
    Whenever we send an email of a short video from our iPad2, it loses quality and becomes grainy. Is there anyway to maintain the video's high quality via email? Can anyone give advice?

    Try uploading the video to Dropbox (or a similar service) and see if the same thing occurs.

    You've gotta remember - email is not a great delivery platform for large files. @720p, even at a low bit rate, you'll eat up space fairly quickly. Email providers usually limit email sizes to 10 megs (some as little as 5 megs) so it's just not a good way to attempt to send video files.

    I'd agree with Chas_m and suggest looking for some form of cloud storage that you can make the files publicly available.
