How To Share Videos On Discord

Sharing videos on Discord is a great way to share funny clips, interesting tutorials, or even your own gaming highlights with your friends and online communities. As an avid Discord user myself, I have discovered various ways to share videos on the platform, and I am excited to share them with you!

Method 1: Uploading a Video Directly

The simplest way to share a video on Discord is by uploading it directly to a server or channel. First, navigate to the server or channel where you want to share the video. Click on the “Upload” button, which is usually represented by a paperclip icon. Select the video file from your computer and wait for it to upload. Once the upload is complete, you will see a preview of the video along with a link. Simply click on the link to play the video!

Method 2: Sharing a YouTube Video

If the video you want to share is already uploaded to YouTube, you can easily share it on Discord by copying and pasting the video’s URL. Once you have the YouTube video open, right-click on the URL in the address bar and select “Copy.” Then, go to Discord and paste the URL into the chatbox. Discord will automatically generate a preview of the video, allowing other users to watch it without leaving Discord.

Method 3: Using a Discord Bot

For more advanced video sharing options, you can utilize a Discord bot specifically designed for video sharing. These bots often offer additional functionalities such as playing videos directly in voice channels or queuing up multiple videos for a watch party. To use a Discord bot for video sharing, you first need to invite it to your server. There are several video-sharing bots available, so be sure to do some research and find one that suits your needs. Once the bot is in your server, follow its specific instructions to share videos.

Method 4: Screen Sharing

If you want to share a video that is not uploaded anywhere but is playing on your computer, you can use Discord’s screen sharing feature. Start by opening the video on your computer. Then, while in a voice call or video call on Discord, click on the “Screen Share” button, which is usually located at the bottom of the call interface. Choose the window or application that is playing the video and click “Share.” Now, everyone in the call can see the video you are sharing.


Sharing videos on Discord is a fun and easy way to engage with friends and communities. Whether you choose to upload videos directly, share YouTube links, use a Discord bot, or utilize screen sharing, there are plenty of options to suit your needs. So go ahead and share those hilarious cat videos or showcase your gaming skills to your heart’s content!
