But if we want to send the video from a social network such as Facebook, it is very easy.

But before doing so, a question arises as to what type of format is compatible with our WhatsApp messaging app, here are some formats: MP4, AVI, 3GP, MKV.

It is also good to take into account the duration of the video, should not be more than three minutes and with a size of 16MB. Another thing to take into account are both the audio and video codecs, for audio codecs they are recommended: ACC or AC3, for video codecs: H.264 or MPEG-4.
