To make a YouTube video your WhatsApp status, copy the video's URL, save it to your computer, and then choose it from your camera roll as your status.
WhatsApp only enables you to change the status of a video that already exists in your camera roll.
If the video you wish to use as your WhatsApp status comes from someplace else (for example, YouTube or Vimeo), you'll need to first download it and save it to your camera roll.
Otherwise, since there isn't a function for it, you won't be able to put the video as your status.
After you've saved the video to your camera roll, click “Add to my status” to add it to your status.
Here's how to change your WhatsApp status to a YouTube video:
Step 1: Make a copy of the video's URL.
To begin, go to YouTube and search for the video you wish to use as your WhatsApp status.
The movie may be any length—5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 45 minutes.
It's worth mentioning, however, that when you share the video on WhatsApp, it'll be cut down to 30 seconds.
In addition, lengthier movies will take longer to download and use a lot of storage space.
As a result, you should download a shorter movie (e.g. 3 minutes) rather than a longer one (e.g. 30 min).
Tap the share icon after you're on the video (next to the dislike button).
After you've pressed the share button, you'll be presented with a number of choices for sharing—Copy Link, Twitter, WhatsApp, and so on.
You'll want to choose “Copy Link” since you'll need the video's link in the following step.
Although there is a “WhatsApp” option, you should not utilize it since the video will be shared straight on WhatsApp rather than on your status.
To copy the video's link, tap “Copy Link.”
The video's URL has been successfully copied to your clipboard.
You'll use the URL to download the video and store it to your camera roll in the following step.
Step 2: Go to the video's official website and download it.
You must now download and save the movie to your camera roll after copying the video's URL in the previous step.
This may be accomplished in a variety of ways.
One of the options is to use an internet service like SaveFrom.net to download the video.
The simplest method to download a YouTube video to your phone is to use an online tool.
To begin, go to YouTube and type in “Online Video Converter” and choose the top result.
You may also go to SaveFrom.net to learn more about the tool.
Once you've arrived at the website, click on the empty box and choose “Paste” to paste the video's URL.
To begin processing the video, press the right-arrow icon once you've pasted the URL.
A download option will appear underneath the video once it has completed processing.
To download the video in its current quality, use the download button.
You must save the movie to your camera roll once it has been downloaded.
To do so, go to your downloads (your downloads are accessible in the top navigation bar on iOS devices) and touch on the video.
Touch the share button in the bottom navigation bar, scroll down, then tap “Save Movie” to save the video to your camera roll.
The video has been successfully downloaded and saved to your camera roll.
You'll discover how to put the YouTube video as your WhatsApp status in the last step.
Step 3: Make the video your status update.
You may now set the YouTube video as your WhatsApp status after saving it to your camera roll in the previous step.
To begin, open WhatsApp and go to the bottom navigation bar and touch the “Status” button.
Then, touch the camera symbol or the “Add to my status” button.
Your camera will open as a result of this.
Tap the picture icon in the lower-left corner of your camera's screen.
Then, from the drop-down menu, choose the video you just downloaded in the previous step.
The maximum video length you may set on WhatsApp is 30 seconds.
If the video is longer than 30 seconds, WhatsApp will automatically cut it in half and play the first 30 seconds.
By moving the arrow symbols left and right, you may change the start of the trim.
After you've chosen the beginning of the trim, add a caption to the video (if desired), then press the arrow symbol to post it to your status.
On the “Status” page, your friends and family will now be able to see it.
What is the best way to copy a YouTube link?
To copy a YouTube link, first go to YouTube and find the video you want to share.
When you're watching a video, next to the hate button, you'll see a share symbol.
To copy the video's link, touch on the share button and then on “Copy link.”
You may now paste and share the video URL to others since it is on your clipboard.
Is it possible to make money off of WhatsApp status videos on YouTube?
If your WhatsApp status videos aren't copyrighted, you may monetise them on YouTube.
The video cannot be commercialized if it is copyrighted (for example, if it includes copyrighted music).
In fact, you may sell films by using royalty-free or Creative Commons-licensed material.
You may monetize material on YouTube as long as you have the appropriate permissions to use it.
A WhatsApp video status is a wonderful way to share your life's highlights.
It may also be used to share movies from your camera roll.
To put it another way, if you save a YouTube video to your camera roll, you may share 30 seconds of it as a status update.
If you want to make a video your WhatsApp status, make sure you first save it to your camera roll.
