Ability to Upload video to social posts

NB2004

Would love to have the ability to upload video to social posts - as right now the only options are blogs, images and landing pages.

Hi everyone,

 

I'd like to add some clarity on this. You can upload videos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn through the HubSpot social media tool.

Hello @echris,

 

It is actually in a beta on Instagram's APIs, so we are working on it, but we are taking it slowly as this new beta API has had some reliability concerns. We will update once Instagram video publishing is stable and available!

 

Thanks for reaching out.

Hi @Sianthegatefilm,

 

Instagram's API still does not support video or multi-image posting. 

 

Sprout does not support posting video or multiple images to Instagram yet - https://support.sproutsocial.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000683263-Instagram-Publishing

 

Sprout has a reminder option, but you still need to post the video or images through Instagram's app. 

 

When Instagram's API comes out with video and multi-image posting functionality, it will become a priority for us. We completely understand your desire for HubSpot to be a one-stop-shop, and Instagram taking you out of your regular workflow is inconvenient. We want this as much as you, and when Instagram makes it available, we'll be on it Smiley Happy

Hello @Sianthegatefilm,

 

Thanks for your feedback! It isn't usually viable to "get around the API" as the API is the only "bridge" to connect with a platform like Instagram. That being said, we are always open to new learnings. What third-party provider or competitor are you using now that allows you to post videos to Instagram? Would love to dig into that.

 

Stories is definitely something we're exploring, and we really appreciate your valuable input on that.

 

Best,

 

John

Guess what? Posting videos to Twitter is now possible in HubSpot as well!

 

Instagram has limited the ability to publish directly to Instagram via API to only posts containing a single photo at this time. No video and no multiples are allowed. Instagram has said they will be making API changes over the next few years, and we will be keeping a close eye on those changes.

Hey guys, good news! We have just released the functionality to post videos to LinkedIn from the Social publisher.

 

As always, reference this knowledge article for the guide on social publishing - How to compose a social post with the social publishing tool. Thanks for your input!

Hello @NB2004 @HRobinson @katrinaokeefe @wadefitzgerald I wanted to let you know that Facebook video publishing is now live to all HubSpot Marketing customers.

 

As @HRobinson has done above, could you all please confirm which social networks you would like to see video publishing for so I can update the idea accordingly? Thank you!

Hey @NB2004 @katrinaokeefe @wadefitzgerald could you please confirm which social platform your suggestion is for? We currently have Facebook video publishing in BETA.

I would love to see it for Twitter as well as LinkedIn, since Facebook isn't the proper social channel for my audience. Thanks!

I would like to see it implemented for Twitter and LinkedIn please - as we frequently post from these channels as well. Thank you!!

We love to see video for Linkedin and Twitter.  This is where most of our business is.

I second this - having the ability to upload videos to all platforms would be beneficial for marketing. It's also more of a burden to have to upload videos directly on the social media network. Also, having the ability to upload more than one photo in Hubspot would be an asset. I am constantly wanting to share more than one photo and cannot do that in Hubspot.

Just to say that you can now post videos to Facebook, just nnot other channels (which I believe is in the pipeline).

Our key audience is on LinkedIn and Twitter as well so it would be great if it would be possible.

Hi, we would need to upload videos to LinkedIn and Twitter also. Facebook is not a relevant network for us.

I think it's important to keep up to date with the most recent features available on social media and having the option to upload videos to Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn would be great. Also uploading scheduled videos/boomerangs/still images to Insta stories would make the life of a digital marketer easier! 🙂

I also would love to see this for Instagram. Am currently posting IG videos outside of HubSpot.

Yes I also vote for this idea! Now that Linkedin has introduced native video to company posts this is something we really need to see integrated into HubSpot. At the moment we are unable to schedule posts to LinkedIn which include video, which is really frustrating.

Would love to see HubSpot support LinkedIn video! I just a news release that Twenty-three, a video marketing platform, is the first to support LinkedIn video on its platform.

Video is clearly everything for today's marketers and an area in which many forward-thinking companies are investing for 2018 and beyond.  Our B2B audience is not on Facebook, so uploading video to LinkedIn and Twitter is critical.

Right now we can't upload and post MP4 videos to our Instagram and LinkedIn accounts through HubSpot's social publishing tool. I have to go into each account on those platforms and post the video individually. Is there going to be a future update to those channels where we'll be able post MP4 videos directly, like we're able to do in Facebook?

I also miss this feature. Especially since everyone is talking about how video is THE THING to use as it has more appeal and reach in most platforms.
