How To Send Videos on Discord That Are More Than 8MB

To send and share large videos on Discord that are more than 8MB, upload the videos to the TransferNow website or to the Imgur website, then send the link on Discord.

So, after uploading a video to TransferNow, you can send the link to the Discord server or chat.

The good thing about TransferNow website is that you can upload a video up to 3 GB in size.

But usually, the links on Transfernow expire after 7 days, so keep this in your mind.

On the other hand, you can use the Imgur website to send large videos on Discord that has 200 MB in size.

However, the Imgur website allows you just to add a 60 seconds video.

Which may not be useful for you.

But when you add the link to the video, Discord will transform it into a GIF.

So let’s check the two methods.

1.Upload Video to TransferNow

Once the video is uploaded successfully, copy the link and paste it on the Discord chat or server, then send it.

When the link is sent, you can click on the link and watch the video on the Transfernow website by clicking on the eye icon.
