I wanted to send a copy of a replay video to a friend of mine but cannot find the StarCraft 2 video folder.
Are these stored locally or on Battle.net?
Regardless of where they are stored how can I share these replay videos?

Yes, they are in a directory such as:
The cool thing is that the replay files themselves are quite small (11-15 KB on my computer) so it should be easy to email and share. Another cool thing is that SC2 registers the ".SC2Replay" file extension, so all you need to do is double click on the file to play it - you (or your friend) don't even need to copy it into their own "Replays" directory.
On OS X as of patch 1.1:
Before patch 1.1 the
StarCraft II folder was located in
/Users/[You]/Documents instead of under Application Support.
Unfortunately, while opening a
.sc2replay file in OS X will launch the game, it won't auto-start the replay. You'll have to move it to your
Replays folder and use the in-game UI to start it.
To add to the other answers about where they are physically located on your hard drive. As for sharing there are a number of sites that let you upload your replay. SC2replayed is a good one.
You can upload your replay files there, the site will parse the replay data and provide helpful info about the replay and allow you to share it with friends.
