If you are using Discord and trying to share a large video file, it will give you the following message.
“Your Files are Too Powerful” will pop up with small text that reads, “Max file size is 8.00 MB please”.
A quick and easy way around this is to use a video compressor that reduces the video size.
There are many online websites that offers the service for free.
I have run into this problem and started testing services to see which ones worked the best.
There is also software you can load on your computer to shrink a video, but for quick, free, and easy, a website service works very well.
Below are the websites I have found and use. If you have a good site that reduces video size, let us know in the comments below

8mb.video has a quick and easy to use interface that automatically reduces a video to under 8MB.
They give options for different reduction sizes including 8MB, 50MB, and 100MB.
The service also has sound options such as remove audio.
I tested it with a 233MB video and it reduced the size easily and quickly.
The video quality was very good with no noticeable difference.

Veed.io has a free video compressor that I have used several times and works very well.
The interface is easy to use with uploading a video file and choosing how compressed it should be.
The compression ratio is a nice feature with adjustments to go high or lower along with showing the video size for that ratio.
The lower the ratio the smaller the video size.

Discord file limit can no doubt be very frustrating, but there is a workaround with free video compression websites.
There is also software you can load on your computer to reduce file size, which some may prefer.
For ease of use, though, using one of the websites above will quickly get your file uploaded to Discord.
The video quality may also be reduced, but most good video compressors do a good job of keeping the quality of the video good.
