One of the advantages of using Discord is the ability to quickly send all types of files to individual members or to an entire server. Anything from documents to images and even videos can be sent.
Here’s an extensive guide on exactly how you can send videos to Discord.

Sending Videos To A Discord User
If you want to send a private video to a particular Discord member, you’ll need to send them a DM.
- Open Discord.
- Find the right user either in Discord’s friend’s list or a server’s Member List.
- Right-click the user, type anything and send the message. This will automatically redirect you to the DM screen.
- From here, click on the small + (plus) icon bottom-left of the chat.
- In the newly opened window, navigate through the folders and select the file (video) you want to send.
- Click Open and then press Enter to send the message.
You’ve successfully sent your video! Your friend should get that message immediately once the video is uploaded.
Keep in mind, the maximum file size you can send through Discord is only 8MB. Not a lot for videos. If your videos are larger than 8MB, you can either subscribe to Discord Nitro ($10/month) or try to reduce the size of the video by lowering its quality or cutting it in length.
Sending Videos In A Server
If the video you want to send isn’t at all private and you want as many people as possible to see it then send it into a server.
The process is almost identical.
- Open Discord.
- Select any text channel.
- Click that same + icon, look for your file and open it.
- Send the message.
That’s about it. Now the video can be seen by anyone on that particular server.
Few things to note though. Certain servers limit the ability of users which means you might not be able to send images nor videos. To get access to send files, you may have to contact the server’s moderators or admins.
