Hi

I have a MP4 Video that i recorded on my Android phone and the file size is 185MB and would like to reduce the file size to send through whatsapp.
Please let me know if there is a way of reducing the file size and sending on whats app.
Not sure if whats app will allow to send 185MB of video.

Thanks

Decreasing the size of your video file makes it susceptible to losing quality.  Why not host the file somewhere like Dropbox, iCloud, or Google Drive and share the link to the file.  That's how I get around large file sizes when I want to share them with friends and family.

Not allow as the max video file size is 16Mb.
