Instagram is one of the most popular social sharing sites around the world. You can easily upload videos shorter than 15 seconds, but hard for the longer videos. How to post longer videos on Instagram easily? Read on, you will find a satisfying answer.
Instagram, because of its excellent compatibility on mobile devices, has become one of the most popular social platforms as so far. Instagram makes it easier to take good quality photos and videos via its various filters. But its built-in video recording feature only allows you to record videos up to 15 seconds. What is worse, when it comes to uploading videos longer than 60 seconds, Instagram seems to do nothing. So how to post longer videos on Instagram? I have summarized methods of posting longer videos on Instagram, which are among 16 seconds to 2 hours. Check them out now.
In the first situation, you can solve it by directly choosing the recorded videos from the gallery of your device. Then, you can freely edit and post it as the same as posting videos recorded via the built-in camera on Instagram.
If the video you select is longer than 60 seconds, you will be asked for trimming the video.
In order to post videos in the length between 1 and 10 minutes, you need to download an application working with Instagram on your mobile devices. This application is named IGTV. You can easily get it from Google Store(Android) and App Store(iOS) without any pay. Follow the simple tutorial to learn how to post videos on Instagram longer than 60 seconds via IGTV.
Step 1. After you have installed the IGTV, run the application and login in with your Instagram account.
Step 2. Now, you can post videos by clicking the plus button on the right-top corner; select a video from the gallery of your device; edit the video, such as adding effects to your video. Lastly, share it to your story. If you want to share videos posted by other users, you can also click the paper-plane-shaped button; add video to your story; send to Your story – Share. Do not worry! The videos posted to Your story via this way will not be divided into multiple clips with 15-seconds length. It is worth a mention that IGTV can help you post videos up to 60 minutes only if your account has been verified or has numerous followers.
Alternatively, if you do not want to download the IGTV, splitting the video into clips and directly posting them into a story series on Instagram can be workable. The following simple tutorial can help you split a video into clips.
As a professional splitter, WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro supports splitting multiple files and a number of clips from a single video simultaneously. Besides splitting, it also allows you to crop and rotate videos, download MP3 form Instagram, convert videos to 500+ digital formats and devices.
Step 2. Click Add Files to import videos. You can also directly drag and drop the video files therein. Under the file just imported, press the scissors-shaped button to enter the splitting window.
Step 3. In the new dialog, drive the sliders to choose the part you want to split. Then, click Trim> Ok. You can also trim multiple clips before pressing the Ok button.
Step 4. Choose an output format by clicking the output format button on the right side of the splitter. Lastly, click Run to save your clips.
The only way Instagram provides you to solve the problem on how to post longer videos on Instagram with length ranging from 11- 60 minutes is recording a live streaming video. With this option, you are allowed to share videos up to one-hour long. To record videos on Instagram, click the camera-shaped button on the left-top corner of Instagram; slide to the end of the left and press the recording button. Now you are in a live broadcast on Instagram and you can record the video freely.
After you finish recording the live video, click End on the right-top corner>End Video>Share to Story. Now, it is available to your followers in 24 hours and becomes private after that.
