Now let’s go to the second method.

Send The File After Compressing

There are millions of websites for compressing a file. You can access those with a quick search. To compress a video file you can use websites like there are many other websites that can compress other files, this is a website that can compress .doc, .xlsx, and other files. You can compress your file from here and then you can send it through WhatsApp. After compression, the file size will decrease, you may be able to send that file through WhatsApp if it doesn’t exceed the size of the file.

It is not recommended to upload your file to any other third-party website even for compression because the file you’ve uploaded may be stored on their server and if it is confidential then there can be a chance of misusing the file. But if your file is not that important, like if you are just sharing movies or casual video-songs then it is alright to use these websites.

If your file is important or confidential then read the privacy policy carefully of the website where you are uploading your file for compression or you can encounter a compromise for that file.
