Support message size limit reached when sending videos- way around it?

http://androidforums.com – I'm trying to send a 10 second video I recorded to a friend over text message. I used to have an iPhone and when I would do this the iPhone would automatically compress the video for me. Why doesn't Android compress the videos so it fits? Is there a program or something I can use on my phone that will compress it for me? I used to send videos all the time. (General)
