I could't find any way that can increase video size limit without using root permissions...

I just downloaded and installed Kingroot v4.8.5 APK because I learnt it can root my phone. Now that I have installed it. Please what next. Thanks

Install root explorer
Open the folder data >> data >> com.whatsapp >> shared_prefs folder >> edit the file com.whatsapp_prefrences.xml
Search change 16 to something else. it can only work some time
