I am not able to send videos with the android whatsapp app. I have been capturing videos with jolla camera app, but when I try to send the video(s), it only says to try again. I have tried to reboot the phone and I have the newest sailfishOS ( aswell as Whatsapp.

But if I capture a video with the whatsapp camera I can send it. I am able to send photos that I have captured with the jolla camera app after all.

How should I proceed with this problem?

Best regards.

I am able to send video recorded from within whatsapp, other video's when I would want to select from gallery have no thumbnail so presume there is a mismatch in the codec

What i know, it is cause audio-codec. Try cameraPlus app, this app should use correct codec for whatsapp + youtube

Camera Plus is not working anymore on the latest Sailfish OS version.

Have you tried sending a very small video? I remember on the N9 there being a size cap...
