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.

Agree with this! The ability embed video and have it play as native for Facebook and Twitter would be particularly helpful to drive views / engagement.
