How do I send a video?

Use only https: // link to send files

You also need to use the / sendFile method rather than / sendMessage - this is very important.

You are given 10 seconds to upload a file to the server, if during this time the file did not have time to upload, then it will not be sent or an error will occur. The maximum file size is 60 MB.

It is better to send large files by link rather than base64.
