Happy Saturday Blog Subscribers, Followers, and Visitors.
Today I would like to share the steps you need to take in order to post a prerecorded video to Instagram. It is really quite easy, but you need to pay attention to the details here or else you will not succeed. Here are the steps.
Step #1: Create your video and then save it to your hard drive.
Note: This is a video you are creating using video creation software like Camtasia Studio, Windows Movie Maker, Apple iMovie, etc.
Step #2: Email the video to yourself as an attachment.
Step #3: Download the video attachment in your email to your Phone's Camera Library.
Step #4: Open Instagram (you are, of course, logged into your account), and choose the + icon.
Step #5: First, select Video.
Step #6: Second, select Camera Library.
Step #7: Single click on the video to select it and then go through the steps to choose the presentation mode of the video plus if you want to add any text and/or share as you post.
Step #8: Go to your Instagram page and click on the video. It should be there.
Note: I personally recommend short videos to ensure that the quality is good and also that there are no streaming issues of any kind.
Step #9: Have fun and enjoy your new skill.
