How drop box works is that you install the app from the market and then you can upload the files to a storage box on the web and then you have a option to text the link to the file you want to shar to the user, they can only access what you share with them so you can store a decent amount of files..

 

This does not tie up your bandwidth and they allow 2GIGs of storage for free..  Also once you upload a file the are quickly accessed from the app of the website..

They have to be under the size limit of 1.2MB, the best way to send a video through MMS is to open a message and select attach video and camcorder from option and then record, you should see that on the screen it will say you can capture 1.2mb or 1200kb.  Emails can handle larger files but the size will depend on the email providers network limits.

 

Size limit is discussed at http://community.vzw.com/t5/DROID-Incredible-by-HTC/video-size-limit-on-MMS-htc-incredible/td-p/2028...

 

If you are going to send a number of videos and audio files I would look into a Dropbox, it is just a simpler method of transferring files..
