    Can't attach Video or Pictures in Gmail for Droid

    Ok so I go to Gmail and try and send a new message, but nowhere there do I see a spot to add an attachment.

    If I click on the video file from the gallery it tells me the file is too large.

    So how do I send attachments and or video attachments in my gmails?

    Thanks in advance guys and gals!

    Click the video, click the menu button, select "share" then choose "Gmail"

    There is a slight difference if you're running the new gingerbread. The share button is right on the screen.

    You're looking for an icon that has a dot with two arrows pointing out of it in slightly different directions...that's the "share" icon.

    When you are composing an email from the gmail app you hit the Menu button and one of the options is "Attach".

    Are you clicking the Menu button (bottom left hard key...not on the screen) while in the gmail app?

    I click the gmail app from home screen.
    Top of screen shows me: Menu refresh search compose
    I click compose
    I enter the to contact and the subject as well as the email text.
    On the top of this screen it shows me: Google Gmail Talk Buzz More (I am on Gmail).
    Then it shows me: a left arow a garbage can save send
    If I use the more drop down there is no attachment options that I can see.
    If I long press menu I get the keyboard
    If I just press menu key I get: New Window Bookmarks Windows Refresh Forward and More
    Under More there is: Find on page Add shortcut to homepage Save page Select text Page info Share page Downloads Settings

    I don't see anywhere to attach anything.... Thanks again people much appreciated!

    I think you are viewing gmail from your web browser and not the actual gmail app. I just looked at my gmail from my phones web browser and that sounds exactly like what you are taking about. Have you tried opening gmail from your app drawer icon? Maybe the shortcut that you are clicking to open gmail is linked to your browser app as a link.

    btw, if you are viewing gmail from your web browser you can scroll to the very bottom and click "Desktop". That will give you the same view/options as you have from your PC.
