Why Can't I Upload iMovie to Instagram?

Q: I made a video clip with iMovie, but when I about to share it on Instagram, I couldn’t find “Instagram” in the share button. I really need a solution to this, but the online answers just puzzle me. Is there any straight method for me?

A: Instagram is a popular place for young people to share pictures and photos, while iMovie is a program for users to edit videos. There are many people trying to upload their videos directly from iMovie to Instagram. However, iMovie doesn't provide a direct sharing link to Instagram. If you want to export your iMovie for Instagram, you have to use a third-party tool. Here's how you can upload videos from iMovie to Instagram in detail.

How to Upload iMovie to Instagram

Change Parameters

Step 1: Export and Upload iMovie Video to Your Dropbox

Launch "iMovie" and then select the video. Click "Share" menu bar on the top right corner and choose “File”. In the pop-up window, you can change the parameters of your video. Click “Next”, and a new dialog appears from which you can choose the name and location of your video in the “Save As” and “Where” field. Click “Save” and an indicator will appear on the right side of the toolbar. Your video will be exported to your local folder when the indicator disappears.

Tips: Though Instagram supports MOV and MP4 formats, yet MOV to Instagram is less stable than MP4 to Instagram. It is suggested that you’d better change resolutions to 720P, quality to high, compress to faster. Only in this way can the video be saved as MP4, which is the best format for Instagram.

Upload iMovie to Dropbox

After that, sign in Dropbox and hit "Upload files" button on the right. Choose the exported video you want to upload in your local files. Click "Open" button to upload.

Tips: A simpler way to do this is to drag your videos directly to your Dropbox account.

Export iMovie to Phone

Step 2: Export the File to Your Phone

Open Dropbox on your phone, and find the file. Click into it and on the top right hand, you’ll see three dots, click on that and export the file to your phone.

Step 3: Share iMovie to Instagram through Square Video

Go to the Square Video, which is a user-friendly app designed to edit your video for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. You can consider it as an iMovie Instagram converter here. Find “Choose Video” on the top left hand, click “Choose from Library” to access your video. Then “Square Video” will make your file fit for Instagram. All you need is to hit the bottom at the right hand corner to share it to Instagram.

Notice: The unpaid version of Square Video will leave a watermark on your video. The watermark will be removed only after paying. If you are fine with the watermark, just ignore this notice. Otherwise, there is another way to remove the watermark.
