Updated on Mar 25, 2024

Discord has increased the video file size limit from 8MB to 25MB for all users. However, the video we want to send usually exceeds that limit. So how can we send a large video (over 25MB) on Discord? Don't worry! In this post, I will focus on how to send long or large videos on Discord and give 4 effective solutions.

* Compressing videos can help you make the file size smaller than the Discord file size limit. Download this Discord video compressor here and follow the guide to learn how to send longer videos on Discord!

To send a video larger than 25MB on Discord, Discord suggests you upgrade to Discord Nitro since Discord raised the maximum upload limit for Nitro users from 50MB to 500MB. However, the monthly subscription fee for Discord Nitro is USD 9.99. While Discord offers a discounted rate for users who subscribe annually, the yearly subscription still carries a hefty price tag of USD 99.99.

If you want to send large videos on Discord without Nitro, this post offers some handy solutions for you!
