Why does Discord Restrict File Size limit:

There are a few reasons why you can’t send a file on Discord:

1. If You Don’t Have Nitro Pro

Discord has the option Nitro pro, which will give you a lot of extra features. Nitro users enjoy 100MB file uploads, which means they can easily upload long videos. But still, if you have a free account can only send files of up to eight MB.

GIFs are not included in this limitation. So for free accounts, Discord restricts the file size limit. 

2. If the File Size Limit Exceeds 8 MB

Discord has set a file size limit on its server for normal users. If you are going to send anyone any documents, images, videos, or any other type of file which exceeds the size limit, then it will fail to send. You can resize your photos through online tools, and after decreasing their size, you can try to send them.
