I have a video that I shot on a DSLR camera and edited within Final Cut Pro. I airdropped it to my iPhone. When I view in the camera roll I have no issues, but when I upload it to Instagram it plays back in really bad quality. How do you upload with good quality as I’ve seen it on other videos and just can’t figure out how to do it myself. I’m not sure if I need to export in specific settings.
You are required to make sure that the output video files are in the limits above. However, some users are bothered by the large size of videos recorded with HD cameras or incompatible video formats. In those cases, you're suggested to convert/compress the Instagram upload videos first.
