It depends on the size of the video.

The best way to send a video that's somewhere on Internet is to send the link to it.

The best way to send a home-made video that's only on your PC is to send it as an attachment, as long is it small enough to be acceptable for both your ISP and the ISP of the receiver.
If it's too big, your choices are:
- burn it to CD/DVD and send that by snail mail
- copy it to your homepage with your ISP and send a link
- find a (free or paid) place to store data on the Internet and send a link - these, however, might be password protected and rightly so
