Sample Images I Uploaded On Discord
Note - Discord is not a media storage platform. Use it at your own risk.
Wow… I have been using Discord for years but don’t know why I don’t get this idea first thank you very much for this.
Is it like cloudinary ?
Means it has an api or not.
As cloudinary is limited and I need a large storage database for ’ free ’
it does not have a api and limit just upload,copy url and use it.
conclusion: it is not a storage platform but a social media, we just can use it as storage
No API, total free, its a social media application so the look is totally different than cloudinary.
Thank you @techcvr and @David for clearing my doubts.
So I have to manually upload cloudinary images and videos to Discord and add URL to MySql.
Please do not Misuse a Service. Discord is not meant for file Storage, it’s for Gamers by Gamers. If Everyone starts abusing the system it may cause Server issues due to bandwidth. It can also affect Ping, We need the ping to be low in order to communicate in realtime. It can also affect the competitive scene as well
i don’t think uploading file will effect the ping. if you are anyone is concern for this then not using discord will solver it
Have you Tried to upload images through kodular app to Discord Server.
I Don’t think Discord get affected. because now a day its very big service. and used & Accessed data by Millions of People Daily.
no… i dont think its possible now…
Can we also store PDF files there ?
Yes you can upload pdf but remember the size limit is 8mb per file
