Why Do You Need A Whatsapp Video Converter?

Q - "I downloaded a video from YouTube in MP4 format and transferred it to my Windows 10 Phone using bluetooth. I am able to play this file on my mobile. When I try to send this file to any WhatsApp user, I get error message: Can't send this media. Choose another one. File size is around 5MB yet I am unable to send that file. What could be the reason?"

Obviously, Whatsapp supports sharing video online. But there is a great possibility that you would need a Whatsapp video converter, for so many users have run into troubles when sending media files just because of compatibility issues.

The best solution comes to convert video to Whatsapp supported file formats and compress video for Whatsapp. Owing to the video length, file size and resolution reasons, Whatsapp only allows you to send or share videos within about 90 seconds to 3 minutes. Or rather, the video file size is limited to 16 MB. So another possible solution is to trim the video clips to be shorter, resize video or change resolution, helped by Whatsapp video converting software.
