Instagram Updated with Video Imports, Automatic Straightening
Instagram today announced a significant update that allows users to import video from the camera roll.*Previously, Instagram Video restricted uploads to videos captured within the app, but now users will be able to use the standard iPhone Camera app along with other third party apps to record video that can then be uploaded to the site. The feature will also allow users to upload video taken at any time rather than simply within the moment.
Instagram for the iPhone is a free app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]
Update: Instagram version 4.1 is now available for download.

YES. Absolutely HATED taking video with their app. If I wasn't on wifi with my 4S, then at least half the time it would hang up during the 'processing' stage, and if it did you would lose whatever video you had already taken. Now I can take it with another more reliable app and have it saved BEFORE going into Instagram.

The video upload is A GREAT additional feature for Instagram!
Combine this with being allowed to post 15 seconds worth of video per post, I'm not sure how much longer Vine will be able to stay relevant.

Love this update - does anyone have tips on settings to use for importing video?
So for example, I create a clip on my Mac, what export settings should I be using to load it into Instagram? I've tried MP4/MOV/h.264 all with low file sizes and the app crashes each time I select it. It plays fine in the Camera role but Instagram can't deal with it.

Finally, it's "for real".
Up until today, you could upload pre-recorded video to Instagram, but you had to do a special "hack" exploiting a loophole in the way Instagram handled video files.
Now, you can use any video on your camera roll. Of course, the trick is, getting it on your camera roll.
Richtervet, you'll find my blog post helpful on your dilemma.
The TLR version is -
- Produce your video however you normally do.
- Import it into After Effects and place it on a 640 x 640 composition.
- Do whatever you want to it in AE.
- Render with the following -
MOV file format
3,500 kbps video bitrate
AAC audio codec at 44.1 kHz mono
Then get it to your camera roll, which I detail one method in my blog post.
Here's some samples:
Hope this helps...

Thanks for that podblack
I think the problem I had was that being a Brit, I work at 25fps and perhaps iOS prefers your 29.96fps instead! I made this work this morning - http://instagram.com/p/cvx6iMM4Sr/
I use Photo transfer app - http://www.phototransferapp.com - to send the files across over WiFi straight into the camera roll.

Figured out another workaround that doesn't require After Effects. It's not as elegant as podblack's - because you can't scale video so it shows in full widescreen like you can in After Effects - but it does work easily. You'll need iMovie for iOS to make this happen. (A lot cheaper than After Effects, thats for sure!)
1. Get your video on your iOS device's Camera Roll.
2. Open iMovie on your iOS device and start a new project.
3. Import the video from your Camera Roll.
4. Do whatever you want to the video - edit, trim, etc. Just make sure that it is less than 15 sec long.
5. Export the video back to your Camera Roll.
6. In Instagram, choose it from your Camera Roll. There you go!
Hope this helps!
