How To Share Video From Facebook To WhatsApp:

There are a few methods that you need to follow:

Whenever a Facebook friend of yours sends you an informative or funny video on Messenger. You might feel the need to share that video in your WhatsApp groups or with your other chats on WhatsApp.

It is unfortunate that the share icon adjacent to the video shared on Messenger, only allows you to send the video to other Facebook friends. There is no direct share option for WhatsApp.

◘ Tap the three small dots at the extreme right-hand corner and select the Copy Link option.

◘ Now, you can send the link to anyone on WhatsApp. 

But that’s the with-link approach.

Can You Upload the Facebook Video to WhatsApp Status?

When you come across an interesting video on your Facebook feed that you would love to share with your contacts on WhatsApp status, there are a couple of things you can do.

◘ You can share the video by copying the link of the video you want to share and then pasting it on your WhatsApp update status page.

Though the link method will not work when the video you desire to share is private. 

As an overall better option, you can download the video first using an external downloader tool and later upload it to your WhatsApp status. 

You must remember that WhatsApp only allows a video for up to 30 seconds to be uploaded on the status. As a result, WhatsApp will divide the long video into 30 seconds for each part during the upload. You can set the time limit by sliding the time ticker across the bar that is displayed above your video.
