Not seeing Recorded Videos for upload on IGTV Fix

I encountered this issue and got it fixed by:

1.You are most likely launching the IGTV app that built into Instagram. Download the Stand alone IGTV app here which while it’s the same thing as the other at first glance its in fact more robust.

2.Once installed launch the app and try to upload the video from the dedicated IGTV app. You most likely are able to see your video now right? well congrats.

3.Now that you can see your video for upload you may have another issue which is the video dimensions are off. IGTV for the most part allows only portrait type videos to be upload which is formatted to smartphones.  So as a tip be sure to shoot all your videos while holding the camera in portrait mode and not side ways. This way none of your video will be cut off in a weird cropping.

4.alternatively if you cant see a video in the camera roll as a additional tip you can try closing the app out including ruining in the background and relaunch. Newly recorded videos may show up then in some cases.

Instagram TV Tip

1.On IGTV you can upload content that’s 15 seconds and up to ten minutes long for newly created channels. Larger channels should be up to 1 hour or so.

2.If you are on a slow connection uploads will take some time so be patent especially in situations where the upload bar seems to be stuck for a while.

3.As far as I see it seems hash tags are allowed so you may want to implement those to get your content seen on IGTV.
