WhatsApp doesn't allow videos greater than 16MB to be uploaded as a bot response.
If you have configured a bot response in Conversation Studio that will show a video on WhatsApp and the size of the video is more than 16MB, it will fail as it's a WhatsApp limitation. (WhatsApp documentation that mentions the 16MB limitation - read here.
Note: This limitation is only for business phone numbers configured in the India region (+91 country code). If your WhatsApp business phone number is a US region phone number (+1 country code), you will be able to show videos greater than 15MB on WhatsApp.
We do not support custom videos. However, you can provide a link to the video which is already hosted on YouTube using this format
