As of March 10 2022 Routee is the first to offer Viber video functionality through our API.

Send Video messages to your customers with our powerful API . There are 3 templates available :

Video
{
...
viberVideo: {
"videoUrl":"https://video-url.com",
"videoThumbnail": "https://thumbnail-url.com",
"fileSize":20,
"duration": 18.6
}
...
}

Viber Video + Text
{
...
"text": "A message",
viberVideo: {
"videoUrl":"https://video-url.com",
"videoThumbnail": "https://thumbnail-url.com",
"fileSize": 10,
"duration": 18
}
...
}

Viber Video + Text + Action

{
...
"text": "A message",
"action": {
"caption": "Click here"
},
viberVideo: {
"videoUrl":"https://video-url.com",
"videoThumbnail": "https://thumbnail-url.com",
"fileSize": 10,
"duration": 18
}
...
}

For now as per Viber functionality the button in the Video template will open/play the file on an external browser (the button will navigate the user to the media URL outside the Viber app).

❗️

Important : Video server validation

To ensure that all videos will be validated and become downloadable, each video’s server host must allow Viber’s client to verify the file header to make sure the file meets Viber’s technical requirements. A video that will not allow headers investigation might not allow users that receive it to download the file or play the content. The video file must be hosted on a server that allows HEAD methods and includes the file “Content-Length“ in the server reply.
