So, how to send a video in Messenger more than 25MB? Well, though there is no direct way to send large video in Messenger, by trimming the large video into small segments, compressing the video, using Faecebook's file-sharing feature, and uploading video to a cloud storage service, you are still able to send the video on Messenger successfully. In the following content, we will share detailed steps to help compress and clip video, and other solutions. Read on.

Solution 3 - How to Send Large Video on Messenger via Facebook Video Upload

There is another roundabout method of sending large video files on Messenger that you can upload the video to Facebook first, then send the video URL to others on Messenger so that people can click the URL to directly visit the Facebook video page for watching. However, you also have to notice that there are still limitations for video-uploading on Facebook:

Upload on Facebook and Send the URL to MessengerUpload on Facebook and Send the URL to Messenger

Video size: Up to 4 GB

Video length: Up to 240 minutes

Maximum frame rate: 30fps

Suggested video codec: H.264

Suggested aspect ratios: 16:9 (horizontal), 9:16 (full portrait)

Facebook supports several formats for video-uploading including AVI, MOV… But for better result, Facebook suggests MP4, MOV as preferred choice for uploading. After you have successfully uploaded the video on Facebook, then just send the video URL on Messenger.

Solution 4. How to Send Long Video on Messenger via Cloud Storage Service

Besides using the above solutions to avoid the Facebook Messenger file size limit, uploading large/long videos to cloud storage services first and sharing the video link is also a good option. The following will take Google Drive as an example to show you how to upload videos to a cloud service and send your videos on Messenger without any hassle.

Upload Video to Google Drive<Upload Video to Google Drive

Step 1. Open Google Drive, and click on "New" > "File upload" to choose the video file you want to send.

Step 2. Right-click on the file and select "Share" once the video has been uploaded to Google Drive. Select "Copy Link"

Step 3. Click "Manage access" to adjust who can access the video.

Step 4. Go to "Messenger" and paste the link to send the video.

At last...

That’s all the methods on how to send large videos without the Facebook Messenger video size limit. Sending the URL can get the job done but isn’t many peoples’ favorite option (considering we often want to share the video with certain people instead of the public). Hence we suggest you use the video compressor/editor. Download the toolkit here:
