Whenever I try to post a MP4 video to Instagram,t always times out and can not be uploaded, but uploading pictures is fine. Why can not post a MP4 to Instagram?

I created a MP4 file and want to upload it to my Instagram stories. It kept failing and asking me to retry. I re-exported the MP4 video and trying different sizes, but fail again. Any ideas or solution?

Recently many users encounter failure when posting MP4 videos to Instagram. There are many reasons why they encounter failure. The failure can be caused by the followings:

  • The allowed video duration for uploading is maximum 60 seconds. If the MP4 that you try to post is longer than 60 seconds you will fail.
  • You can not upload MP4 file through a desktop computer. If you did, you failed.
  • If your MP4 includes multiple clips you can not post it in landscape or portrait format.
