Step 3. Choose a Discord Compatible Video Format

Click on the output format section on the right side to choose the output format for your video. Discord supports MP4, WebM and MOV video formats, and we suggest you convert videos to MP4, which is the industrial video format that is compatible with all mainstream platforms including Discord.

So select MP4 from the Video category.

Slide from Quick Settings to quick adjust video quality. As you can see from the video information bar, the lower the quality, the smaller the file size. For experienced users, you can click the Parameter settings button to change video encoder, resolution, bitrate, etc. to reduce video size too. You can also head to the bottom compression button and drag the slider to increase the compression ratio till the video reaches the Discord size.

Besides this method, another accepted way to upload large video files on Discord is to share the video as a link. It involves uploading the video on another video-hosting platform first. This is the solution many mobile users choose and you can find more info in the next part.

Mobile - How to Send Large Video Files on Discord?

To bypass discord file size limit on a mobile phone, you can first upload your videos to the video hosting platforms with larger file size limits like YouTube, Google Drive or Dropbox. Then you can share the large/long videos with your friends on Discord by sending them a shareable link generated by the video hosting services.

To do so, we suggest you download and install the corresponding apps of the services since uploading videos from your mobile phone to a mobile webpage can be tedious and painful.

To demonstrate, I’ll use YouTube app to send a large screen recording on my phone to a friend on Discord.

Step 1. Launch YouTube app, log in with your account. Register one if you haven’t had one already, and you have to verify your YouTube account to upload videos longer than 15 minutes.

Step 2. Hit the video icon from the upper-right side of the interface, allow access to your photos, if prompted. Then choose from your phone the video that you want to share to upload.

Step 3. There you can trim out the unwanted frames to shorten the video. Then hit Upload from the upper-right side.

Step 4. Wait for your video to upload. When it’s done, hit on the triple dots button on the right side of its information bar, and hit Share.

Step 5. Hit Copy link, and the shareable link of the video will be copied to your clipboard.

Step 6. Then launch Discord, open up the chat with your friend, and send him/her the shareable link. Voila, video sent! And the other end can preview it right from the chat frame.
