Instagram Stories have been a revolution to the point of making other alternatives like Snapchat disappear from the map. When there were few, they thought about the almost immediate success they were going to have, but that’s the way it was.
How to post a video of more than 15 seconds to Instagram Story
These stories have an implicit limitation: they can not be longer than 15 seconds. This limitation means that we cannot upload full videos, however, there is an easy way to upload them one after the other and it seemed like a continuous video.
So you can upload long videos to Instagram Stories
There is no way to skip this Instagram restriction, so in order to upload longer videos, we will need an application. There are several in the App Store that will help you, but we have chosen CutStory.
What this application does basically is “chopping” our video into new videos of 15 seconds. It also includes complete editing tools and also allows us to adapt the time to other social networks such as Facebook, where the stories last 20 seconds.
These are the steps we must take:
The first thing to do is open the application and click on the icon on the right, the video, and allow you to access our photos.
After choosing the video, it will load in the app.
Now we have several options like different formats, add text or filters.
Once we have finished, click on the arrow icon on the bottom right.
We select the social network to which we want to upload the video.
The application will cut the videos and save them on the reel.
Once the process was finished, we left CutStory and went to the reel. We will see how we have several videos of 15 seconds in length, in the case of having selected Instagram.
Now all you have to do is open Instagram and upload the videos in order. When they are all uploaded it will appear that it is a complete video. So if you had too long a video for Instagram, now you can upload it without problems.
