Hello. This is Shiho.
Today, I am going to talk about “How to send overloaded videos on LINE”
Have you ever experienced that you cannot send a long video to your friend on your LINE chat room?
Yes, I have.
I just wanted to share a live, vivid video with my friend!
Have you ever felt this kind of frustration?
Suppose your friend cannot attend a wedding ceremony of your mutual friend.
What will you do if she asks you to take a video of the ceremony, and send it on LINE?
You cannot send overloaded videos (more than around 3 minutes) on LINE, and you do not know other ways to send…
You want to send the video somehow…
Here it is!
This is the way to send overloaded videos on LINE.
Capacity and length of videos you can send on LINE
What about the capacity and length of videos you can send on LINE?
It is said that 300MB which is around 1.5 minutes is the limitation.
I examined a few cases with my Android mobile.
The results are following.
○3 minutes video
× 4 minutes video
Of course the results depend on the video quality on your mobile.
If the video is overloaded, you need to edit and make it shorter.
If you can edit and make it shorter, that is fine. However, if you do not want to cut any moments, here is the method to send overloaded videos on LINE.
