But sometimes we encounter facing problems using whatsapp, precisely in situations like the following,

  • Videos,images and audio files of size more than 16 Mb cannot be sent through whatsapp messenger
  • Sending ZIP files is not possible over whatsapp
  • Whats app doesn't allow us to upload and send pdf files through messenger directly
  • Often quality of video files and image files is reduced to save the bandwidth.

If we send an image on Whatsapp messenger then the resolution of that image will be reduced and when your friend views that image or video file on his computer then it will appear with low resolution. Though this appears to be a feature, it turns out to be a problem with whatsapp in some events like if the file needs the original quality. This is the same problem with Video files also.

Any video of size larger than 16 MB cannot be sent on Whatsapp. Today we are going to learn a solution to all these problems.
