Video compression is broken (Discord Beta)
I've been signed to discord beta program on mobile for some time, but now encountered the worst bug.
My videos started compressing by itself, i have discord Nitro for 500 MB limit, so i don't need it(yet).
It takes up 1 minute to compress 2 minutes and 29MB video into the same size with earraping white noise(Lower your wolume and don't use earphones). I would understand if it's a new feature testing, but why i can't even disable it in settings. Or is it not under "Text and images" category?
It doesn't seem like every video i upload is affected, but i haven't tested it after it, and just encountered the user who had the same problem, but completely different video.
UPD: I didn't encounter such problem with PC upload, but the white noise is prelevant even when played from PC.
UPD2: Seeing how so many people replied already, i am using 149.11 build, 31 OS googleRelease, but i already left beta program on mobile, reinstalled app, but the problem is still there, i got it with 2 videos out of 3 that i tried to post.
I don't know if I'm part of the beta or not, or where that option is. My mobile client says it's OTA Build 149.11, OS 33, Release Channel googleRelease.
I am also getting horrendous white noise in all videos I upload, I do not have Nitro. All videos I upload are below the 8MB size limitation but still Discord mobile will try to compress them and thus result in the white noise corruption of the audio.0
Yea same for me, also on 149.11 OS33 with nitro. Speaking of the 500mb upload limit, that never worked for me, mobile always complains above 100mb.
Sound gets absolutely f**ked with stupid loud white noise after upload. Also, file size increases by more than double.
A 20.7mb vid gets "compressed" to 47.8mb
edit: should have added, I'm on a pixel 7 pro0
I am also having this issue. I am on OTA Build 149.11, OS 30, and Release Channel googleRelease. My video files also get "compressed" to a larger size with the accompanying white noise. I'd prefer if there were an option to completely disable video compression, as I generally compress my videos using external apps.

I have had a comment on Twitter from Discord:
"Heya! Just to give you a heads up, this issue is currently a known issue that is on our team's radar, and I want to reassure you that our team investigating this further. Please note that our support team does not have an exact ETA for when a solution will be available :0!"0
oh well... at least its a known issue0
Issue is fixed on my phone. Video uploads are compressed and do not result to white noise anymore.0
