By default, decreases video and picture sizes before submitting them.
That allows to submit larger videos/pictures without dealing with limits. You can disable that behavior in settings

Do you know how one can determine the limit to upload sizes? A friend wondered about that, and, if I remember correctly, wasn't able to ask the instance provider. But I guess it isn't possible to determine from the clientside without try&error

It could via nodeinfo. But mastodon doesn't give a lot of information

For instance, pixelfed allows to know that limits


Oh yeah, I think it was about pixelfed actually. Thank you for that info!
