Hello @dibbs12, you may first upload the video in your Dropbox. Open the Dropbox app in your iPhone. Click the "+ Create button" in the lower center > Choose Upload Photos. By Default you will see photos and videos in Camera roll, you may choose the video from there. Optionally, you may click over the Camera roll dropdown and choose another Album (say, Videos) to narrow down your search. 

Once you have uploaded the video, browse it on the app, click the Share button on the top, you may choose to Create a link > Copy Link and send it to your friend by email. You may also click the Mail or another app to send email directly.

thanks, Elixir, I used your technique to move files from my iphone to my desktop dropbox and thence to my notebook's hard drive. I appreciate the clarity of your explanation.
