we'd love to hear from you!
At this point, scheduling video has to be executed through the website for it then to be downloaded back on the phone for posting on Instagram. Ideally, it'd be awesome to schedule vids on the phone app just the same as photos.
I’m glad I could help. Makes up for the fact that I had forgotten to update the app. I was still on the version that doesn’t allow video. My apologies for wasting your time. Loving the app! Look forward to the “photo category” idea becoming a reality.
All the best!
Hi there - actually that Knowledge Base article is wrong! (thanks for noticing and letting us know). You can, indeed, upload video from the mobile apps!
Maybe some confusion. I understand that photos and video need to go through the server, but you actually can't upload video through the mobile app. I may be reading your comment wrong but my request is about being able to upload and schedule videos exactly like we can with pics... Saves juggling two devices especially given it's a paid feature.
You should be able to upload/schedule video from the mobile app. But, yes, the video must be transferred to our server. There are a number of reasons for this - one of the big ones is: we auto detect video types on the server, and transcode them to the proper format for each social network.
Also - we actually do the same for photos - ie. photos are uploaded to our server before publishing.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
