Questions and Answers

Why does the WhatsApp video stop after 17 second?

Why In my Lumia 535 does the WhatsApp video stop after 17 second & sound totally stop from the beginning?

WhatsApp has a limit on videos that is set to 16 MB. WhatsApp tries to compress the video from your Gallery automatically, but when it reaches 16 MB, it cuts it out.

To attempt to add more time to WhatsApp videos, your chat partner who sent you the video and you (if you intend to send large videos) can install

These programs will help you optimize and compress your videos to the appropriate size limit (16 MB). You can also ask your chat partner to trim the video into smaller parts.

Have tried to set up WhatsApp on Win 10 Lumia 535 phone, app is installed but!

It worked in UK but cannot get it to work here in Tenerife and now seems to have blocked my phone and now have only the items I selected, Lumia Camera, Vodafone ES-TalkTalk, Skype and WhatsApp showing all blue color and the phone started talking to me through one of my walking apps since then have had two calls from a Vodafone help service in UK. Do not know video flashed through so quickly will login again . I have tried: Cannot get back into phone, I did all sorts of different things VPN and other things beyond my knowledge. I think it was caused by: My lack of geek, wish I had not got this phone!
