Part 1. Situations of Uploading Instagram Video

Instagram is the new and happening trend of social media these days, and everyone is dying to get in on the action by sharing videos and pictures that they’ve captured. In the past, Instagram only made it possible to upload pictures and videos from your phone, but what happens when you want to upload something you’ve saved to your PC? For some this may have seemed new and unachievable in the past, as uploads were done from smartphones. With these steps we’ll help you to upload your videos from a personal computer so you can share your precious moments with your friends and followers on Instagram.

This new ability comes with the recent upgrades of version 4.1 on Instagram that allows you to edit and change your videos from your phone and then upload them from your personal computer. First and foremost, you have to pick the correct format settings for being able to export your videos to Instagram. Keep in mind that this step will only apply when you’re uploading videos, not when you upload photos to Instagram. First, make sure that your phone is capable of playing the video and you can do so by following a few simple steps. The first thing to keep in mind is that the video can only be fifteen seconds or less. Media on Instagram follows the guidelines of being no more than 640x640 pixels which means when the video is exported, you’ll have to change the size on it.

In most cases, when you purchase a camera it’ll film 16:9, to get the image in the form of a square you can put a white border around it which in turn will shrink the video down to the size you need and that is allowed. After that you want to make sure that you set your frame rate to twenty-five per second. You want to export your video using codec H264. Make sure that the bit rate of the file is either 35,000HZ or less. Once you have followed all of these steps then you’ll be able to transfer the video from your personal computer to your smartphone. If you have an Android device, iPhone or Windows phone you’ll want to follow these listed steps to get a video on it from the computer.

Normally I will use KeepVid Pro to convert and eidt my video before upload, this all-in-one video toolbox really helps saving my time, very easy to use.

Part 2. Uploading Instagram Video for iPhone Users

While many things can be done on a windows phone by syncing things through ITunes, this is not really going to work in this case, nor is it very convenient. Instead, you’ll take a much simpler route by emailing the file to yourself then when you receive the email, open it, download and save the attachment to your Camera Roll.

Part 3. Uploading Instagram Video for Android and Windows Phones users

In either case of using these phones, simply attach the USB cord that came with your device from one end of the device to the computer you’ll be using. Unlock your device and then you’ll proceed to copy and paste the file in to a folder in the media library on your personal computer using file explorer. Once this step has been completed make sure you’re logged in to Instagram and you click on the upload section from where you share pictures and videos and you should see the new pictures (or in this case video(s) that you’ve transferred from your personal computer to the smart device you’re using.

The really great thing we love about this method even though it may seem a bit of a hassle for some who aren’t familiar with this process is that you’ll get high quality pictures and videos even if you don’t have a high resolution camera. When it comes to sharing content on Instagram, it seems the more you share the more fans you’ll have and the more people will want to follow you. It’s widely known that brands use social media all the time to spread the word about their products and get the word out there about what they do have to offer. In the methods we mentioned above you can continue to share media for others to see, of course providing that they follow the standard rules and guidelines of the Instagram community that you can read about on their site.

Lastly do remember to make your video in the right settings before uploading. You can try KeepVid Pro if you don't have a right video converter. The following guide shows you how to use KeepVid Pro to convert videos for Instagram from the video sharing sites.
