Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do you make an animated banner for Discord?

To have an animated server banner for Discord, your server needs to be at Boosting Level 3. Discord supports JPEG, PNG, and GIF files, so you can upload a still banner or an animated banner. The recommended time for your animated banner should be 6 seconds, but the maximum limit is 15 seconds. Either way, make sure your animated banner is under the GIF file size limit of 10MB.

Why can’t I add a Discord banner?

If you can’t add a Discord banner, it’s possible you don’t have Discord Nitro or your server is not at Boosting Level 2. To boost your Discord server up to Level 2, you need 15 boosts from members. Alternatively, you can purchase Discord Nitro where you’ll receive a complimentary 2 server boosts to add towards your server.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
