Edit the Video using Video Keeper

Well, to post a YouTube video on Instagram is not as easy as it shows. Users will need to edit video to meet certain requirements before they can do the task. One general rule is that users are not allowed to share or post any explicit stuff. Also, Instagram prefers that the YouTube video to be shared is between 3 to 60 seconds long only. Nevertheless, all videos must be under MP4 or MOV format and the size should not be higher than 4GB. Luckily, AceThinker Video Keeper also proposes an intuitive video editing tool to cater to all of these requirements. So, let’s check the easy guide below to do it.

Step1 Convert the Downloaded Video

Access the main interface of Video Keeper, go to the “Convert” tab to select “Add Files”. From here, browse and select the video we need to load to the software. Click the “Drop-down” menu from the “Profile” option, then find “MP4” and select the resolution.

Post Videos to Instagram

Sharing the edited video to Instagram would be our last and easiest step. One instance is that users can create a montage or mash-up of photos and videos and post it to their feed. In doing this, there is a more significant chance that a user might gain more followers. However, as mentioned earlier, this process is not that easy, especially there is no way to share a YouTube video to Instagram directly. Luckily, following the method above would help us to do it. To learn more about it, check the guide below, and let’s go to the last step of this tutorial.
