Pixeldrain is a file sharing website built for speed and ease of use. Pixeldrain does not cost any money, though donations are appreciated. See how you can support pixeldrain below.
Files can be uploaded by clicking the big green upload button, or by dragging them onto this page from your file manager. You can not upload directories at this time, only files. The maximum file size you can upload is 10 GB.
You can also create lists, which are a collection of files. Like a photo album, a music record or a video compilation. To do this you need to upload a bunch of files at once. The files will be saved in the order you uploaded them. When all files have finished uploading you click the "Create list with uploaded files" button and you will be asked to enter a name for your list. After picking a name the list will be created and opened in a new window. If your browser blocks the window you can also find a link to the list at the bottom of your uploaded files.

By purchasing a subscription you support pixeldrain on its mission to make content sharing easier, safer and faster for everyone.
Files on pixeldrain have to expire eventually. If we didn't do this the website would keep growing forever and we would run out of money pretty quickly.
Unlike most other sharing sites pixeldrain uses a postponing system for expiring files. When a file is freshly uploaded it gets 30 days by default (this can be extended by supporting the site on patreon). After these 30 days we will check when the file was last viewed. Files which are regularly viewed could still bring new users to the platform, it would be rude to show these people a 404 Not Found page. So if the file was viewed in the last 30 days we will simply postpone the next check a month. If the file was not viewed however it will immediately be removed.
This way we can minimize dead links, and you won't have to tell your friends to 'hurry and download this before it expires'.
Normally when viewing a file on pixeldrain it has to go through the file viewer. Files which are directly downloaded without visiting the file viewer are blocked after a while.
Direct linking allows you to share files without going through the file viewer. You can use this to embed videos / images in your own webpages. Files which are direct linked won't count any views but we will keep track of the downloads and used bandwidth.
When you use up your direct linking bandwidth your direct links will stop working for the rest of the month. You can always upgrade to get more bandwidth. The amount of bandwidth used in the month can be seen on your user page when logged in.
