Hello! A friend of a friend of mine inserted a one minute movie made by the video scribe on instagram. How can I do the same?
How do you upload a videoscribe video onto Instagram. How do you convert a videoscribe video into a format that actually fts on the instagram screen. How is this not available.
Below is taken from help.instagram.com.
Once you've selected a photo or video from your phone or tablet's photo library, you can choose to share it as a portrait or landscape instead of a square:
Once you share it, the photo or video will appear as a portrait or landscape in Feed. You can share photos and videos with aspect ratios between 1.91:1 and 4:5.
Note: In grid view on your profile, photos shared as a portrait or landscape will appear as a center-cropped square.

Videoscribe free trial users cannot save videos directly to their hard drives. Videoscribe users with paid subscriptions can save MOV, WMV and AVI files and can save mp4 files by publishing to sho.co and then downloading the mp4 file. Follow Instagram's requirements for size, format and framerate. Follow instagram's instructions for uploading.
Maybe an instagram user can comment about whether instagram will rotate a video or simply crop off the sides if it is too wide. I think that the instructions mentioned above result in cropping.
Based on some tutorials I have watched, you can upload a landscape video to instagram and you will be able to watch it full screen with your phone turned sideways, but if you hold your phone upright, the sides of the video will be cropped off during playback.
If you want to go the extra mile and create a portrait video, instead of a landscape video, you will probably need to create your whole project sideways (rotate all elements 90 degrees clockwise) in videoscribe and then use a video editing program to rotate the video 90 degrees counterclockwise to make it "portrait".
Again, these are assumptions and suggestions that I have made based on what I have read. If you are an instagram user please feel free to test them and post your results!
