For Instagram, the video should be in Portrait mode. We recommend a 720p with 30 fps video in portrait mode, although 1080 will work too. For example, the IGTV portrait video dimensions can be 1080 x 1920 pixels and an aspect ratio of 9:16.


Instagram allows a maximum stream time of 4 hours per video.
