How to Email Videos From Windows Media Player

Sending a video by email is easy when using Windows Media Player.

Emailing your Windows Media Player video is a great way to share special moments or a funny viral clip with your friends and family. Using your default email program you can immediately forward your video to whomever you like within a matter of minutes.

Step 1

Select your video from within your Windows Media Player then click "Send in email" from the taskbar.

Step 2

Click the "Next" button to open up your default email program. You should notice your video within the attachment section of your email message.

Step 3

Enter the recipient's name within the "Send to" tab, followed by entering a personal message in the message box.

Click the "Send" button to transmit the email.


Windows Media Player will automatically size your video to fit your email program.

If you do not have a copy of the video saved to your computer, you may want to save the video before sending it by email. To save a copy of the video, click “Save a copy of my video on my computer” from the taskbar, then enter a file name and click “Save.”
