How Can You Send Videos on Discord Mobile?

First, you must go to Discord’s app settings on your phone and allow certain permissions.

After you do that, open Discord and send the video, that’s it!

It might seem simple, but the steps are complicated and lengthy.

But if you skip step one (allowing permissions), you won’t be able to send videos on Discord mobile.

You haven’t allowed Discord permission to access your photo library.

How Do You Allow Discord Permissions?

Follow the steps below to give Discord permission to access your photo library:

  • Go to your phone’s settings

To give Discord camera permissions, go to your phone’s settings (gear icon) and select “Apps.”

Go to your phone’s settings
Go to your phone’s settings.

Your phone’s Settings look like a gear icon on your main screen. Tap on that to open them.

Then, scroll down until you see the “Apps” option. That’s where you can edit the Discord permissions.

Tap on it!

  • Select “Permissions”
Select “Permissions”
Select “Permissions”

In the “Apps” menu, you’ll see several options like “Manage Apps” or “Permissions.”

Select “Permissions” to edit permissions for every specific app.

If you don’t have the “Permissions” tab, you can go to “Manage Apps” and select Discord.

Then, you’ll have a “Permissions” option in the app’s settings.

But for now, we’ll assume there’s a “Permissions” option in the general “Apps” menu.

Tap on it.

  • Tap on “Permissions” again.
Tap on “Permissions” again
Tap on “Permissions” again.

Depending on your phone’s settings layout, this step might not exist for you.

But just in case, you may see another menu after selecting “Permissions” the first time.

You may need to select “Permissions” again in case you have more options to choose from.

  • Select Camera
Select Camera
Select Camera

Finally, this is the app permissions list. Here, you can allow or disallow certain permissions from apps.

Some of the permissions include “Contacts,” “Microphone,” “Camera,” “Storage,” and more.

You’ll need to allow Discord permissions to your Camera and Storage.

Select “Camera” or “Storage” to proceed with the next step.

  • Tap on “Discord” to allow the “Camera” / “Storage” permissions
Tap on “Discord” to allow the “Camera” / “Storage” permissions
Tap on “Discord” to allow the “Camera” / “Storage” permissions

In the “Camera” / “Storage” permission tab, you’ll see a list of all the apps on your phone.

Some will have permission to use your camera/storage, while others won’t.

Search for Discord in the list and tap on the marker icon next to the app’s name.

When it becomes green, it means you’ve allowed that permission to the app.

If it’s grey, the app doesn’t have permission to use your camera/storage.

Do this for both the “Camera” and “Storage” options.

You can take pictures on Discord or upload them from your photo library.

How Do You Send Videos on Discord Mobile?

After you allow Discord camera permissions, sending videos on the app is simple.

Follow the steps below to do it:

  • Tap on the “+” icon in the server chat
Tap on the “+” icon in the server chat
Tap on the “+” icon in the server chat

Open the server, go to a channel, and look in the bottom-left corner.

You’ll see the chat box, and to the left, you’ll see two icons – a Gift Box and a Plus icon.

Tap on the Plus icon to send pictures or videos to Discord.

  • Tap on the “enlarge” icon
Tap on the “enlarge” icon
Tap on the “enlarge” icon

You’ll need to enlarge the window if you don’t find your video in the recommended list.

Tap on the “enlarge” icon at the top of your recommended content box.

This will open a new window showing your phone content like photos and videos.

  • Select your video
Select your video
Select your video

In the new window, look for the video you want to send and tap on it.

This will upload the video to Discord. Please ensure the video is 8MB or less in size because otherwise, you can’t send it.

If you want to send multiple photos or videos at once, hold-tap on them and then send them all.

  • Tap on “Send”
Tap on “Send”
Tap on “Send”

Once you select the video, tap on the “Send” button to send the video.

At this step, Discord will either send the video or tell you that it’s too large if it’s above 8MB.

If it’s above 8MB, you’ll need to crop it if you want to send it.

You can increase the upload video size by subscribing to Discord Turbo. That’s a premium feature, though.

  • You sent the video

After tapping the “Send” button, you’ll send the video to the channel.

Everyone will see it now.

Conclusion

It’s not hard to send videos to Discord on mobile, but first, you’ll need to allow the app certain permissions to your camera and storage.

Without these permissions, you won’t be able to send photos or videos on Discord.

To give these permissions, go to phone settings – Apps – Permissions – Camera/Storage – Allow for Discord.

To send videos on Discord, go to a channel, tap on the “+” icon – Enlarge – select your video – Send.

Discord will send the video if it’s under 8MB. If it’s larger than 8MB, you’ll need to crop it before sending it.

That’s it; now you know how to send videos on Discord mobile!
