WhatsApp is not developed by Nokia or Microsoft. For feature suggestions I woudl recommend contacting the app developer at whatsapp.com

I can give you a correct answer.  Forget about sending prerecorded videos using Lumia with Widows OS.

As Window phone does not allow all other App developers to access to its video library.

So it is not possible for sending video  using lumia series for sure.  I have 920 before and just switched to  Samsung Android because of this issue

That's correct. There's no way to attach pre-recorded video's.

Hey,
For now, you cannot attach pre recorded videos on whatsapp. But ,alternatively you can upload it to third party sites like Vine or Vimeo and send link to your friend to see, cause anyway uploading a video is going to take same time.

Also,
I have seen UC Browser feature, which allows you to upload 'images' from hub and export 'videos' to Hub. So I guess this feature may come to many other apps too...

Re: Sending videos through whatsapp in nokia lumia 520

this is easy.... Let me give you the answer to sending videos. Just plug in your USB cable and transfer the videos you want to send to saved pctures on your lumia phone memory, then go to whatsap and select the attach icon then select albums and you will get it in pictures.... then send   pap.... done:thumbsup:

Re: Sending videos through whatsapp in nokia lumia 520

It's easy!. Connect your Nokia with your PC. Copy from your PC all videos you want to any of following phone folders:

 

/Pictures/Camera Roll

/Pictures/WhatsApp

 

Then, from your WhatsApp installed on your Nokia:

1)  click de clip button to send and attached file.

2) select Albums (i have in spanish version of my windows phone like "Álbumes")

3) then open "Camera Roll" or "WhatsApp" and select your videos.

The videos must be in wvw format. If you have installed the Nokia Software in your PC, when you paste other format into your phone, the software show you a message and will ask you to start to  convert to a valid format. Click Yes and that's all.
