How to Send Videos on Discord

Discord notifications

Discord isn’t just a place for sharing text messages or images. You can use it to share videos you’ve made, too. Here’s how.

Experiences are there to be shared. If you can’t play with your friends, you can clip your favorite moments and share the videos on Discord.

While Discord has broadened its appeal, it still remains one of the best platforms for gamers. You can use Discord to send your gaming videos up to 8MB or smaller in size, making it a perfect sharing platform for a quick highlights reel. Of course, it doesn’t have to be gaming videos you send—you can share whatever you like!

If you want to send videos on Discord, here’s what you’ll need to do.

Rules for Sharing Videos on Discord

Before sending a video on Discord, remember these rules:

  1. Regular users can only send video files that are 8MB and below in size.
  2. If you want to send a larger file (up to 50MB), you’ll need a Discord Nitro subscription.
  3. Discord only supports the .mp4, .mov, .gif, and .webm file formats.
  4. The video doesn’t violate Discord’s terms of service or break any house rules of the server you’re uploading to.

If you need a tool to slim down the size of your video, check out Handbrake, a free and open-source video editing software. Handbrake can make videos smaller but retain the original quality.

If you’re looking for an online tool to decrease video file size, check out VideoSmaller if the video size is a few KBs or an MB over the 8 MB limit.
