So, that was how you could send a video from WhatsApp to Facebook/an email address. If there was a video in the WhatsApp app on your phone but you think it has been accidentally removed from the device, then you will need to first restore it before you can share it with others on Facebook or via email.

While WhatsApp doesn't have an option that lets you recover deleted data, you need to use a third-party app that can help you recover WhatsApp data. Fortunately, there is a WhatsApp data recovery app called UltData or Android Data Recovery, which can easily recover lost or deleted WhatsApp chats including messages, videos, and photos from iOS/Android phones.
