The perks of being Instagram partners means we have been granted early access to Instagram Direct Publishing 🎉 

While more marketers are relying on video to reach their demanding customers, we've been working hard behind the scenes to continually improve our video posting.

We are excited to announce Instagram Direct Publishing for video. You will now be able to post and schedule videos directly to Instagram without having to leave the Sendible dashboard! 📹



Limitations: 🚨

Duration of videos: 60 seconds maximum, 3 seconds minimum

File size: 100MB maximum and .MOV and MP4 files only

Please note: Facebook is still optimising this API so we recommend checking that your videos are being posted correctly in the first 2 weeks of usage.

Further improvements to LinkedIn video (coming soon):

While we already allow users to post videos to LinkedIn, we are working on improving this further. Currently, LinkedIn posts go out with a link to the video. With our changes, videos will be posted natively to LinkedIn. 💪
