    Is there any way to get a video to Skydrive without compression? I would think over WiFi this would be no problem because even on Android the Skydrive app allows this.

    Settings -> Applications -> Photos + Camera

    Click on "SkyDrive". Under "Videos" select "Best Quality". Requires WiFi though.

    It is still compressing even with that option set. Perhaps due to the video size (2 min 30 sec)?

    Works for me. The uncompressed videos are quite large and take a little bit of time for them to upload. If you go to the pictures hub, you can see pending uploads. Don't know what to tell you.

    I am having the same issue. It appears that an upload of a video longer than 1 minute to Skydrive gets compressed no matter what option I choose in the settings.
