Instagram is a well-known social media tool for connecting with followers and sharing amusing stuff like images and videos. Unbelievably, Instagram sees more than 95 million daily photo and video uploads. Hence, we work hard to differentiate our Instagram photos because of this.
But not all Instagram videos are of the best caliber, as you might have noticed. This is a result of Instagram reducing the video quality to speed up uploading. But according to CNET, this is what you need to do if you want to submit high-quality movies to Instagram.
1. Open the Instagram app first.
Open the Instagram app on your iOS or Android device to get started. This procedure may appear slightly different on your Instagram app if you use an alternative version.
2. Go to your Instagram profile.
At the bottom-right corner of the app, tap the profile photo. You can access your Instagram account page by clicking this.
3. Choose the three-dash menu.
After you are on your profile, tap the three-dash menu in the top right corner of the screen.
4. Access your account settings
Choose “Settings” and then “Account” from the menu with three dots.
5. Turn on “Upload at Highest Quality”
Then, select “Upload at best quality” under “Data consumption” (for iOS) or “Cellular data use” (for Android). You can upload high-quality videos with this even when utilizing cellular data.
Furthermore, while posting videos to Instagram, keep in mind the required size and resolution. Videos must have a minimum frame rate of 30 frames per second and a minimum resolution of 720 pixels. In addition, the aspect ratio of the video should fall between 1.91:1 and 9:16. Also, a 650MB file size restriction must be followed for videos that are 10 minutes or less. And for videos up to 60 minutes in length, the maximum file size is 3.6GB.
Meanwhile, 420 by 654 pixels is the suggested size for Instagram cover photographs (or a 1:1.55 ratio). In addition, you should be aware that you cannot modify a cover photo once it has been uploaded.
Last but not least, all users of Instagram are required to adhere to strict community rules. Videos that don’t adhere to these guidelines risk being taken down from the platform. And a video that goes against community standards can be reported.
On another note, in 2021, Instagram Video’s format debuted. Similar to publishing images, you may upload videos from your Photo Library or the app’s built-in camera on Instagram. Additionally, you have more creative freedom on Instagram because videos can be up to an hour long.
Moreover, making a visually appealing profile on Instagram requires uploading high-quality videos. Therefore, you may make sure that your films are uploaded at the best quality possible even when utilizing cellular data by following the procedures indicated above. But when posting videos to Instagram, always follow the community rules.
