A new "video" channel type, for server-wide video share
We have voice channels, text channels, DM Channels, and Group DM's.
Video is coming to discord, to DM channels, to Group DM channels, but not to servers.
If servers had "Video" channels with their own permissions like, "connect to channel", "send video", "send audio", "view video", "hear audio", etc, that would be so useful.
Think of the possibilities, bots can play videos and everyone can watch them, bots can control what plays.
We could have stats channels, like say a tournament is being ran, you could make a bot live show the tournament/game, with stats, information, just like watching a real tournament.
We could have "video announcements," like a bot just scrolling through news and stuff constantly, on a loop.
and so many many many many many many many many more possibility, it could change communities on Discord forever. (ex NGNL and other Discords).
If you have any other "ideas" that could happen if we had such a thing, please do share it below.
If you agree! PLEASE UPVOTE! LETS MAKE DISCORD BETTER THAN ANY CHAT APP THAT EXISTS!
this is something we needed for a long time, so i'd say Y E S

NOOOO. I thought this was my idea only. Still, I vote for this.
Be way nicer not having to stop chatting in a channel, and call everyone when you wanna share your screen. Hope this comes out soon or at least a way for people to enter to test it.
It may also be possible to do a facecam channel? With a limited amount of people at a time of course.
sounds awesome, wish this was implemented
Its a nice idea, it could allow developpers to make some sort of cinema / streaming bots to watch a movie with friends or directly allow Discord to make live stream news on a global video channel
Dude I have 2 discord account, I opened a new server with my 2nd acc, and i got screenshare, No I cant see the monitor icon anymore on my new server but my old account does with the same server, like even Im casting my screen with my 1st acc but it doesnt show anything on my 2nd acc anymore, but most of my friends can see my screen, except one particular guy I know,
I wonder what is discord upto
5% of servers currently have had this for a while now, but still no word on it.
This feature is already availible. You just need the BetterDiscord-Addon.
You can even customize the background of your Discord like this: https://i.imgur.com/4FjLAJo.jpg
For tutorials just type in "How to install BetterDiscord". I myself used this video for the basics and git the rest explained later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nl6QicqV7gA

Where i can become that?
So it seems on some servers Voice channels support video chat, while on some it doesn't. I've tried creating a new server to see if only new servers get this feature but it seems random for now. Does anyone know what the criteria is?
This idea would really help alot of stuff and make discord more fun in general!
