    Can anyone explain this? Is it hosts issue or theme or what? I'm interested in uploading a hentai videos to my site but could that be done when it's only 8mb limit for media within wordpress.
    Thank you for all replies

    That's an issue you'll typically run into if you use cheap or free web hosts.

    However, in some cases, you can set the limit higher or remove it altogether.

    If your web host is restrictive, then you won't be able to set a new limit, requiring you to purchase one of their "better" hosting packages or change web hosts.

    One other way around it is to try uploading your media directly through your file manager rather than your Wordpress Dashboard. If I recall correctly, I managed to do this with a site that had that limit once before.
