    I agree I don't know why discord got ride of it and replaced it with go live

    It's the one thing my group would have over any other - we miss out on lots of good server functionality and just use group messaging simply so we can have video. This has to be a popular ask.

    It would avoid adding everyone as a friend, creating a Group DM inviting them from a list each one when they go online... Just setting a new channel with some permissions / limitations would be enough. Then, other users only need to click to join that channel by themselves.

    We have an small server basically for doing our RPG sessions, so, we'd love if this feature comes out.

    +1.  This makes having small servers for RPGs (I'm in the same situation as godbhaal) somewhat annoying.  I'm trying to get my crew to move to Discord from Skype, and this would really be the most compelling feature...

    I suspect the "No video chats" thing is an attempt to keep younger users safe (which as a parent I applaud) but maybe there's a halfway measure somehow?  Require everyone in a chat room to be Friends before a video call is allowed?

    With the pandemic going on, this is a must. My Discord server has 1300 people who play online games where video is a big factor and they're all moving away from the server to start using things like Zoom so they can see each other. Add this feature urgently please !

    💯

    Sounds like an excellent feature for the working from home crowd: "ambient video" or "media spaces" foster a sense of community and affords impromptu collaboration. This should not behave like "calling" where someone makes a call and people answer. This should behave like the existing voice channel where you can see who's there already and join with video as one wishes.

    Note that this is probably different from the remote learning usecase (http://dis.gd/discord101).

    +1, I (30yo) want to use discord for hangouts (virtual lunches and coffee breaks) or collaboration. This use case basically applies to everyone I know (not only gamers)

    But other tools such as Zoom are easier to access for new users. Now is the time to re-enable this feature before competitors gain more traction from network effects.

    +1 - trying to play board games with friends during social distancing, and this would make it MUCH easier to get up and running. Please make it so that you can create video channels or something to that effect rather than having to break out of the server to do it.

    PLEASE. I'm setting up a server to help reconnect the folks from a tabletop thing I host, and it's going to be super annoying if I go through all the organizing there only to have to tell people that if they actually want to game together and see each other's faces, they need to set up a Zoom meeting instead. If Zoom supported groups with sub categories, Discord would lose me completely over this. Please fix it.

    I'm pretty sure there is a way to do it as in my friend's server they made a link which takes you to a video call in the voice channel. I will check with my friends on how to do it and will update you guys when i find out.

  • H4ze

    @VASTSoapster - That is a long known workaround. Though it requires some tinkering. The point here is that you can do that without the link and that the feature is built in originally.

    @VASTSoapster indeed this is a work around I tried it my self, but it works porly you need to klick the link everytime when you check a text channel and it doesnt work for eveyone I know.... but its an alternative work around. While the video chat function was in discord before, and we want it back :3

    The built in feature should definitely be added back since it would make it easier to start video calls within a voice channel. Though I think the link is useful in meantime since it may be a while until the feature returns. I wouldn't say it requires much tinkering as all you need is the server id and the voice channel id which can easily be accessed and once you have created the link you could pin it in a text channel.

    I just made one right now, but yea it is a link that I sent to my "everyone" groupchat and said join if you want to. Link expires in 3 hours and i could change that, and only up to 10 people in the chat from what I can see and do. Maybe if we keep spamming the thread they will notice XD

    I found out how to create one like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHBPYx7JRpQ
    I haven't actually tested it with others yet, but it appears to work.

  • Narcotic-MG

    Yeah, we were talking about doing it this way, but its more like a work around and doesnt fully work on everything.... and there was a function already in discord but the removed it somehow wich is a big bummer at this moment...

  • Narcotic-MG

    So I'm agreeing to Rees, lets spam this thread :D

    agree, i just spent one evening with my friend unsuccesfully trying to videocall a voice channel.

    it's such a basic feature we gave it for granted, just to realize it is currently impossible.

    who will give me back the time i spent on this? :(

    This just became unavailable with the link work around for me.  I updated today and it no longer worked.  This needs to come back.  Make it a premium feature for the server owner I don't care. make it wok again!

    +1 that's the only feature keeping me from moving my classes from Zoom to Discord. We need this now more than ever! Plssss

  • iamcorbin

    Hey Discord staff, did someone notice we were using the workaround above and just disable this functionality?? :( 

    This is unfortunate. Please bring this feature back! 

    In the meantime, I have discovered that we can at least directly video call a specific user and then add other users to that video call, but we would all appreciate a more public room ability.

  • Cactess

    Agreed - please bring this back! We are a community of people from multiple different countries that used server video chat every single day.

     

    EDIT: Looks like the links are working again! If they're not for you, try Discord Canary, but they should be working on regular discord as well!
