Live stream video on Instagram

To stream live a video to Instagram from your OneStream account, you need a third party app like Instafeed.

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.

Important: OneStream does not own or have developed Instafeed. So, if you find issues with it, please contact their support directly for help.

DO NOT click Create New Broadcast on Instafeed

Steps to configure

Get the Sync Secret URL from Instafeed

Open Instafeed and enter your Instagram username & password.

Copy SYNC SECRET URL (You will need to paste this sync secret URL in step 3 below)

Copy Sync Secret URL from Instafeed

DO NOT click Create New Broadcast on Instafeed

Setup your Instagram account on OneStream

Go to OneStream dashboard and on the sidebar click Accounts

Click Add Account

Click Instagram button to add

Add Instagram details:

Give your Instagram social account a name of your choice, for example, My Instagram Stream, Instagram account, etc.

Now paste the Sync Secret Key copied from Instafeed in the Sync URL section

Click Connect to OneStream.

Paste Sync URL copied from Instafeed

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.
