You can now upload videos to Instagram from Hootsuite with your computer (as long as they last less than a minute)

Hootsuite , the world's most widely used social media management platform, and Instagram have ended one of the strictest social media policies since its inception in 2010, the limitation on uploading videos from a computer. The alliance between the two companies will now allow all Hootsuite users to upload videos to Instagram company profiles directly from the computer.

At the beginning of January of this year, we explained how Instagram silently updated its API to allow programming videos on Instagram . After the update, tools such as Hootsuite and other social media management apps  could allow you to schedule videos on Instagram without having to use alternative processes such as receiving a mobile alert from these apps when it's time to post, and then manually upload the video. directly on the social network.
