@tachyons is there a restriction on audio file sizes and video file sizes. If yes, how much, any idea ?
@shirishag75 30 MB for videos, could not find any limits for audio files
@tachyons thank you. So in essence I could upload whole songs if I wanted to ;)
@shirishag75 Try, and let me know. I haven't verified this
They're only for the current instance though, as I understand it...
@dheadshot it includes federated toots from other instances as well
