Live stream video on Instagram

Before you begin

For Instagram, the video should be in Portrait mode. We recommend a 720p 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.

Steps to configure Instagram

Go to OneStream dashboard and on the sidebar click Accounts.

Click Add Account & Click Instagram button.

You will be given two options to connect the Instagram account.

Method 1: Connect via Instafeed

Click on the option connect via Instafeed.

Enter Instagram Username.

Enter Instagram Password.

Check the I'm not a robot checkbox.

Click on Login after which Instagram account will be connected.

Method 2: Manual Configuration

Click on Configure Manually, as shown in Step 3.

Fill in the details:

Enter Social Account Name.

Paste Instagram Stream Key. You can use any third party tool to get Instagram's stream key.

Click on Connect to OneStream, your account will be connected.

You will need new Stream Key each time when using manual configuration method.

Now you can upload & stream a recorded video or real-time live stream on this Instagram account and it will be live streamed to your followers on Instagram.

Keep in mind that you cannot see your stream from your profile or your live status on Instagram. To view your stream, log in to Instagram from a different account and view it in real-time as your followers would do. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t allow you to see your live stream from the same account. Only followers can view the stream.
