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?

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.
