    How to download Discord videos? Discord should be familiar to gamers or anyone using web apps where having a chat server running alongside the game increases the experience. It is a free chat app that allows you to discuss gameplay alongside the game or discuss what you like, adding an extra layer of sociability to your online life.

    Among its many great features is the ability for users to upload and download images and videos to Discord - the only limitation is an 8MB file limit. That's not much for video and only allows for a few seconds in HD or a slightly longer SD video. There are ways to get around this limitation, which I will show you below. So with that said, let's take a look at how you can download videos from Discord.

    using discord

    Discord is very simple to set up and use. All you need is the app, log in, a camera and a microphone and you are good to go. There is a Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and Linux version of the app, so you will be able to use it on almost any device. You can also run it on your browser if you don't want to install it. To get started, follow these steps:


    1. Download the discord app from here and install it on your computer.
    2. Create an account if you don't already have one.
    3. Install the camera and microphone.
    4. Join a server to chat.

    That's all you need to set up and use Discord. If your camera and microphone are already registered on your computer's operating system, Discord should automatically detect them. If not, go to Settings and add them manually. You can also select the video quality and configure the appearance of the app while you are there.



    If you're watching Discord, chances are you already know which chat server you want to join. Otherwise, within the app there is a search engine that allows you to search for games, chat rooms or topics of any kind. To chat better, you may even want to use a headset! While designed for gamers, there's a lot more going on than just game servers!

    HOW TO UPLOAD IMAGES AND VIDEO IN DISCORD

    If you've recorded an epic kill or want to share a short video, Discord may not be the first place you think of. You can upload files but there is a limit of 8MB. It's fine for images but not so good for videos. If the clip is below this limit, that's fine, but if it's bigger, there are a couple more steps you need to take.

    The easiest way to upload a file to Discord is to drag and drop it into the app. It will automatically collect the file and allow it to be uploaded. You can also check the small upload box next to the chat bar at the bottom. This will open your file explorer and allow you to link the file that way. Select Upload when you are ready to go.



    If your video is larger than 8MB, you will need to use cloud storage and add the link to Discord. One popular service is Streamable - a free service that allows you to upload a file up to 1GB in size and then connect it to Discord. Your friends can then follow the link and play it.

    You can also use Google Drive, OneDrive, YouTube, Dropbox or any other cloud storage service to store videos and links.

    HOW TO DOWNLOAD VIDEO FROM DISCORD

    Downloading videos from Discord is as intuitive as uploading. Maybe even more. To download any file from Discord, simply right-click on the file and select Download. The file will be downloaded to the default download location where you can access it and view or play it as you see fit.


    In the app, select the photo and download it by clicking the arrow at the top right of the screen. It's a very simple system that makes sharing files easy. While not specifically designed for videos, it works well enough for those super-short videos of less than 8MB.

    If the video was uploaded to a third-party service, an extra step or two is required. You will need to follow the text link provided in the Discord chat to the service hosting the video and try to download it from there. As long as the uploader allows the download, this should be enough to download that video.

    IS IT SAFE TO DOWNLOAD FILES FROM DISCORD?

    Downloading a video or image from Discord is as safe as downloading from any other social media website. Normally, it is quite safe, but sometimes people add spyware or viruses to their files. Either the person needs to know how (which is unlikely), or they downloaded a file somewhere else that already had a virus.


    So while it's generally safe to download files from Discord, be cautious about downloading files from people you don't know and consider using a virus scanner to scan the files before opening them.

    Discord is not designed for sharing images or videos but it does allow it to some extent. While the 8MB file limit can make things difficult, there are several ways around it.
