    I see a lot of discord apologists here saying “just get nitro” or “cloud storage isn’t free.”

    However this issue can be very easily solved simply by having the client compress the image before uploading it. This solution would not burden Discord’s servers with any additional compute, bandwidth, or storage demands whatsoever. There is absolutely no excuse for why this problem exists.

    Should be 20MB imo, enough for a couple seconds of good quality video.

    Instead of asking discord to increase the upload limit, discord could try to implement compression for the image if the image is larger than the intended file size. Or provide user difference setting between low, medium and high preset of the compression

    this is very problematic for sharing screenshot from iPad Pro 10.5 or larger, they exceed 8mb so i usually have to compress it sending the same screenshot to myself in Telegram, saving it again and sharing.

     

    Another solution could be automatic screenshot compression when > limit (8mb for free, 50mb for nitro users)

    It's close to the year 2020, these upload limits need to be updated. A 50mb limit for a paying user is ridiculous. I've tried nitro for a month and I'm not renewing because of issues like these. Stop investing in shallow PR moves and marketing, please develop a better basic service.

    Must be idiots with Nitro Negating my comment..... so here again.... NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD NITRO....those of you with NITRO that are DOWNVOTING what I say are SNOBS. Snobs don't belong here. Upvote because What I say is right.... Nitro is discriminatory.... They got the increase and they promised an overall increase in file size and didn't do it..... GET RID OF THE NITRO PERK OR CHANGE IT WITH AN INCREASE IN FILE SIZE FOR THEM AND INCREASE THE AMOUNT THEY HAVE TO PAY PER MONTH!

    Honestly, simply upping the limit to 8.5MB would probably be sufficient to alleviate the problem for most users.  With an iPhone, you only need to crop a few pixels off of any dimension to get under the 8MB limit, so it is already very close.  But given that this is such an extremely common use case, "buy a premium account in order to upload anything from your phone" is not that compelling of an answer.

     

    Alternatively, you could have the server down-res the image slightly to get it under the limit.

    I think it’s absolutely unacceptable to ask users to pay for the ability to seamlessly upload screenshots taken on the same device that the discord app runs on.

    If you don’t want to increase bandwidth costs, fine, have the client compress the images before uploading them. iPhones have very fast SoCs these days, put them to use.

    Agreed the upload size for non-nitro users is way too minuscule. Can't upload a simple photo from my phone without jumping through hoops to decrease it's size. I was a nitro subscriber for over a year and canceled since I don't use it enough to be worth it. One photo and I have this app that I supported screaming at me because I wanted to send one simple picture to a chat...

    So today was the last day I was chatting in Skype with my last friend who was still using it, I managed to move all my friends from Skype to Discord now and that is fantastic, HOWEVER when my last friend joined Discord he tried to send me a video that was recorder with newest iPhone and he was not able to send me that video because obviously the file was larger than 8MB.

    That was kinda disappointing to my friend, he thought he will be able to send almost any video/photo just like in Skype..

    8MB in 2020 is a joke, please increase it to 40-50MB for non nitro users (if that is too much maybe make that limit ONLY for mobile devices)

    I have trouble promoting discord to friends, because of this. When they see that they can't even share a picture or a video, they are directly turned off and go back to Skype, Viber, Whatsapp, etc. Today's phones generate pretty big files and these limitations will prevent Discord from winning some new clients.

    When I take screenshots with my iPhone XS Max the file size is over 8mb....can't even send screenshots in discord.  I am so close to getting my buddies group chat to discord, raise it to like 15!! :) thanks, love the program.

    Nitro is a damn scam!  It costs more then a full service online backup per year!  Unlimited Backup $50 a year but they damn well want $9.99/month for Nitro just so you can upload larger files.. That is a damn RIPOFF scam!

    Yep. Now in 2020, the file size limit is too low. Difficult to upload multiple pictures. It doesn't have to be super high but come on. It's 2020.

    20 second clip? HAH Cute. I just tried to send a 5 second clip off an iPhone 6 and it said WOAHHHH NELLY! Them files is too strong pardner! -__- it's 2020 and I can't sent a 5 second video to a friend.  Nitro? Why, I send videos and pictures of infrequently a monthly fee for a 'maybe' is ridiculous.

    I think they should make it 500mb if its going to compete with other gaming sites they might as well do it

    Agreed when i record a short 20 second video on pc it already reaches 2mb and on phone an 40 second video is 5mb

    Not to mention discord supports playing youtube videos in the client itself (on desktop), and youtube allows almost any size or length of video.

    50mb isn't worth paying for, 500mb would be worth it to me.

    I think i'll post my Problem here aswell...

    With my Phone Huawei Mate P20 Pro and P30 Pro, im not able to Share Pictures over Discord, because in any angle i take a picture it is "too powerful" and i wanted to ask about automatic compression which would let me share my pictures directly over discord...
    if you want uncompressed uploads you could either use a upload provider or upload directly a file over discord, they should stay same quality as they cannot further compress... lets say a .zip file

    What are your Experiences on this, have you met this Upload Limit with normal Pictures too yet?

    Pretty annoying you can take a Picture without any Option to lower Resolution, and then it tells you it won't upload it since they are too powerful. I can't really share a Picture without tremendous Efford - so a build in Compressor would be a cool thing.

    Agreed, this is ridiculous that nearly any photo I take on my s10+ won't upload to share on discord, very frustrating!

    it should be at least 32MB like Grabilla.

    edit: even as a full Nitro member, 8MB for free users ar simply too low, despite you can do it infinitely. they really need a change this point.

    That limit really needs to be increased by at least a few megabytes. If a simple screenshot from a iPhone XS can't be uploaded because it's too big then there's a problem. My friend group has been trying to find a replacement for Hangouts since it'll be shutting down this year and this is something some of them probably don't want to deal with.

    Please increase the file size. 

    I can't even post an photograph from my smartphone without taking a screenshot of it before posting ....

    File size limit for different chat apps

    Telegram: 2 GB

    Gmail: 15 GB virtually (if it exceeds 25 MB it will auto-upload it to google drive)

    Skype: 300 MB

    WhatsApp: 100 MB

    Discord: 8 MB only ~ WTF?!

  • I agree. I screen recorded an iPad 10.5 air screen, major cropped a video that was 8 seconds long and it exceeds the limit. I understand limit but please make it 10 or 12 megabytes.

    Considering the world of HQ Screenshots, videos and file formats, 8MB has very little hold for most small captures on PC. This also carries over to audio remixes that you have made yourself. I myself have made my own boosted versions of songs and have been unable to send them afterwards due to the file limit. While Discord was meant for GIFs and other image formats, new downloadable formats of images and videos make this limit have no fit. This also includes older formats too with how updates change the functionality of these file types and size requirements. Telling someone to pay for something that is a standard of most other messaging apps is like trying to sell the IPhone 8 for the price of the IPhone X.

    Yes please! Its very annoying where I cant even send a screenshot from my phone unless I crop it just a little bit. It just barely exceeds 8 MB! and i really don't need to spend money just for a 50 Mb upgrade I don't need all of it. I don't even care if they only increase it to 9 MB! I just want to send screenshots easier.
