Frustrating
by @TarotTerry on 2020/10/19 22:52
I have been having major issues with this app in the uploading department. Videos are remaining stuck or disappear after awhile. Even after following all the instructions not one has uploaded. And for customer support... what a freaking joke! I can’t even send a report because an error message pops up. No customer service contact at all to address the questions and issues. Instagram is just as bad.
Very Valuable
by Shug1974 on 2020/10/19 14:56
Thank you.
Great when it works.
by Ahh_leee143 on 2020/10/19 01:29
I mean, I use regular Instagram for my viewing, I only use this to upload and it works 60% of the time. So... 2 stars.
Love my IGTV
by GorillaCookie on 2020/10/18 18:30
Very cool cause you can post videos longer than 60 seconds which is vital for workoutvideos
Hit or miss

Like most technology. Not a good platform for exercise classes but this is where they are at right now.

Amazing!
by Luis Alexander Plascencia on 2020/10/16 11:51
Not the best nor the worst, but I’m going to be very completely honest with this app. When you record a video on the app and post it. It won’t ever post and don’t expect it to post because it won’t post. I waited a whole 2 hours and nothing. So it’s better if you record it on you’re camera app. And then post it and it should post within 5-10 minutes, depending how long the video is.
Thank you

Really bad when uploading video will never be a YouTube
by Rafa-Chateado on 2020/10/11 03:40
I’ve tried several times uploading a sequence of 6 simple videos, after several attempts uploading them (and for each attempts writing a description, title, adding a cover etc) I decided to upload each without any details, just as a test, and 5 of them were uploaded successfully. However, after I uploaded the 6th, in the same way, all 6 of them turned out to sound like underwater. I have tried other sequences of videos before with the same annoying bug... They don’t specify anything about video requirements to be uploaded, they don’t tell you anything about the status of the upload, in summary, this platform is not supposed to share content, I feel like if you don’t use videos from your phone (I haven’t tested it though) it won’t work and it does need to be a super high definition video... Very disappointed with this app and the IGTV platform!
Easier than YouTube
by AWeirdly on 2020/10/10 23:48
A bit slow to upload and view insights never works here but it fun to post things here on the fly instead of getting behind the editing suite

The forced sizing is obnoxious
by Venusvoyagergirl on 2020/10/09 05:36
If you are going to force all videos and thumbnails to be a specific size then make it something we can edit in app so I don’t have to buy 3rd party apps just to resize . Also the search and finding content could be better , hard to find or be found
Learning & Leading
by Betterhealthliving on 2020/10/08 17:19

Can’t wait to release my videos of me drawing my own manga characters; it’s gonna be from Jovan’s Manga Project. Highly recommend using IGTV!!

IGTV works GREAT for me because I loose track of time editing & remembering where I left off in IG stories. It takes away from the moment, when you have to look back at where you left off. Don’t get me wrong, I love IG stories. There’s just certain videos for certain moments. So, IGTV is where to go if you want to talk a little more with out distraction.

Ever since IG decided to get rid of the IGTV feature on the main page, I have found it incredibly frustrating that I have to go to a completely separate app to upload my personal videos which means in order for it to truly work I have to delete the other running apps on my phone to save memory space... if it even uploads at all. 10+ min videos you can forget about it; if I do manage to get a 10min video in I can never seem to get it to upload it into the system for my IGTV entries.
Would he 5 stars if...
by Gorge4short on 2020/09/05 04:05
You guys should make the video time longer and allow you to add stuff to the video like how you can add pics on live when explaining something for reference points.
Longer videos

by &rew Blu3yacht on 2019/06/08 23:01
Here are a few things I wish that will change in the future. There should be a whole page where your subscriptions, following, popular, history and saved are displayed and sorted on a page filling the whole screen. Categories such as sports, tv shows etc to choose from would also be nice. And PLEASE, make it possible to change the cover of the video after posting it. That would be really helpful. Thanks!
Maybe it will end up being a great platform
by ryry.ne on 2018/06/23 04:16
It lacks some basic video functionality like tapping the middle of the screen to pause or the left/right side to rewind/fast forward. The playback menu is really hard to see against a white background (see Philip DeFranco's videos). Also, it would be nice to be able to close a video I'm not interested or at least somehow auto pause it while I'm browsing. And this might sound weird, but here's my biggest complaint - as an adult with a job and responsibilities, I need to immediately be able to see what time it is. It would be helpful if the time (and battery life, etc.) was shown whenever the title and playback menu is visible. Sometimes functionality is more important than aesthetic design.
Incredibly frustrating.
by ucjdnsjx lsbskd dlsbskkwj on 2019/06/07 06:44
This app is a great idea, the problem is it only lets me post vertical but I usually film in horizontal and the fact that I can’t use my videos now is frustrating. So can you make it so you have the option to post vertically or horizontally. Also trying to find videos is incredibly confusing and annoying. There’s always some video playing in the background whether you want it or not. Even going to your channel doesn’t make it go away. And you can’t make it go away either. And then browsing is difficult because it just has one strip at the bottom of the screen instead of having them fill the whole screen with videos or having the layout be the same as the regular instagram so it makes more sense. The whole thing just looks messy and I can’t stand looking at it.
IGTV NEEDS this one feature
by Marky_MarkC on 2018/06/22 18:52
Instagram continues to dominate the social media scene and is even working its way now into dominating the media scene as well with IGTV. HOWEVER, if you do not give users the option to follow someone without giving them a secondary option to unfollow from IGTV, mute Stories, and mute Posts. There are options right now to 1.) mute stories and 2). Mute stories and posts. But what if someone wants options other than those? It’s SO restricting. Many people will start unfollowing their favorite accounts just because there IGTV is annoying. There is no option right now to distinguish IGTV account follows from Instragram post and story follows. Give us the freedom and the options please. IGTV has huge potential with these options added.
Stop trying to convince people that vertical videos are the future.
by yannicinco on 2018/06/21 22:20
It’s a good idea to finally allow creators to upload higher quality and longer videos, but why limit it to vertical viewing? Is it really that inconvenient for people to turn their phones to view a video the way it’s meant to be viewed? Instagram needs to get off its high horse and not limit creators to compromising the amount of information people can see. Content is best viewed horizontally. We don’t watch movies vertically. We don’t flip our TVs to watch. There are filmmakers would would actually love to get real support from Instagram and not limit it to people who don’t care about quality.
Amazing!

by babyboy jk on 2020/02/27 10:38
I think it’s good if you want to post short videos but I came here to post an hour long video and I got denied saying it needs to be 1 to 15 minutes long so I was like okay fine I didn’t care but then I’m scrolling and a Camilla Cabelo has a 20 minute long video uploaded make it make sense I think you should just let ALL of us not just celebrities post longer videos it’s aggravating because you can obviously make us able to post longer videos you just choose not too it’s annoying it’s like a “I would but you’re not worth my time because you aren’t famous” it’s completely stupid. Maybe this why your rating is low...just saying...
We need few things..
by 3zozq8673585 on 2018/06/26 02:11
Supporting higher resolutions would be appreciated. Let people have the Choice to go between standard and HD quality (up to 1080p hopefully, its 2018 😬). More importantly, we need the support of horizontal videos!. Users are already rotating their videos to the right and left and have to turn my phone with that. Support horizontal videos for people who wants to use it. I get it, phones are held vertically, but most people who watch longer videos will turn their phones horizontally anyway. There isn’t that left to work with when you have to crop the video that much!
Functionality Lacking
by lomree on 2019/02/16 19:56
Great concept, unfortunately, I am very disappointed in the apps lack of functionality. I cannot find a way of editing, or deleting a video. To err is human and I am a novice, and one who is still navigating my way through the ways of video social media, user friendly is going to be very important to me. In other words, a simple means of being able to make corrections to my posts is essential. I find it difficult to believe that the IG developers did not think to add such a basic function; therefore, I can accept that, maybe, I am not seeing it. That said, it should be more obvious.

Pretty good first few hours?
by 1309804 on 2018/06/21 03:54
Couldn’t upload the video with a custom thumbnail so that was a tad frustrating. Should have an edit for descriptions at least but that and titles really. And the live function should be in igtv as well. And I️ should be able to choose who I️ follow on igtv I️ don’t like seeing these random things I’ve never cared about before. Also multiple channels for one user. I️ want to run multiple channels from my account

by ACKK2 on 2018/07/07 13:25
This app is a great idea, and I think it’s great that we finally have a good vertical video app. Unlike most others, I actually enjoy vertical video. However, it seems like this is more for people who have a large following. The categories are, “For you”, “Following”, and “Popular”. I would like it for newer people to have a chance on igtv, because as it stands now, it seems to be only for people with a lot of followers.
Would be great if the video function actually works

by ZTrandum on 2018/08/25 07:05
While I’m sincerely enjoying creating content for IGTV, it feels clunky. Uploading videos results in at least one failed attempt every time I upload. Search function doesn’t feel right either. I think IGTV is on track to be something truly amazing, but to see that happen it really needs some evolution. As we speak, I’m attempting to upload a video for the THIRD time. Solid internet connection and no issues with files. Just tells me there was an error. 🤷‍♂️
Good...but
by Ultimate1247 on 2018/06/21 18:15
I think you should rethink the UI to be honest... I understand the look and how you’re trying to go for a seamless experience when consuming content, but I think it would be even better if you changed the way we could pick videos to watch (like the explore page but different). Other than that I’m excited to see where this goes...
😃
by iamnotwriter on 2018/06/20 23:54
I like this concept but it would have been great if same thing you put under the IG profile where you have timeline section, tag section, and save section. Just add “IGTV” section (or add it over there so when we click on that we can jump into IGTV app).
SO GREAT! But please let us edit the description and name!!
by Kisochkin on 2018/06/23 05:56
Ok I’m so glad that there’s finally a platform for posting vertical vids! Problem is I had a typo in the title of my video and I couldn’t find any way to fix it. I had to delete the video and repost it, which made me loose all of the views and feedback :/ Would be great if you add a way for us to edit the title and description after posting :)
Not loading my videos.
by Fake fake fake on 2020/02/10 04:22
Normally this app works like a charm! But today, is not one of those days. I have been trying for hours to upload one video. At first I thought it was too long, even though it was well under five minutes. So I decided to edit the video into two parts. The first part loaded without a problem, but the second part won’t load no matter what I do! Please help! For this reason the app only gets two stars from me :(
Okay I guess
by mmastro994 on 2018/06/25 15:07
I was hoping this would be an opportunity to post longer vids, but when I put one, (it wasn’t even that long, maybe thirty seconds) the app totally crashed just like the regular Instagram app. I don’t know if this whole thing was necessary, why couldn’t they have just made it so you can do the longer videos on the regular app. Now I have two Instagram apps taking up more storage on my phone.
Update not letting me upload
by Nope Facebook is not okay on 2020/05/07 02:14
Ever since this new update, I can’t upload my videos anymore. It’s been stalling saying “posting” for over an hour. I thought it was my internet, so I tried to refresh and exit out of the app. It didn’t work. Then I tried to uninstall the app and reinstall then reupload, but the same issue is happening. This is really unfortunate because I have been using IGTV more for creating content related to quarantine life, and now it’s frustrating that I can’t upload because of this update.
Nothing New
by I Met Zach on 2020/04/07 18:25
This is basically IGTV copies right over from the main Instagram app. The setting consists of log in or log out options, and a bunch of legal notices. I installed it to see if there was more I could do with it than in Instagram and found the answer: No. What does it do? It lets you upload videos to your own IGTV channel, watch videos by other people. When I look at my list of videos, I only see 5 videos by creators I follow; 2 are from the same person. Everything else is all “Recommended for you”, one person I follow regularly posts to IGTV yet he’s never listed and I have to search for him. Instagram needs to fix their options across their apps. Some things I’d like to see: • Filter IGTV to only people I follow • Chronological order for my IG feed • Finite options to follow someone for just their feed, stories, IGTV, or all.
Good but lacking some things
by ILOVEPOLARBEARS on 2018/09/10 20:31
IGTV is good but lacking some features like a filtered search engine, something that you can pick between looking for a specific view or a channel, also lacking a way to see what videos you’ve already watched in one list. And there’s no way to save videos to a watch later list.
Frustrating
by @TarotTerry on 2020/10/19 22:52
I have been having major issues with this app in the uploading department. Videos are remaining stuck or disappear after awhile. Even after following all the instructions not one has uploaded. And for customer support... what a freaking joke! I can’t even send a report because an error message pops up. No customer service contact at all to address the questions and issues. Instagram is just as bad.
Great first impressions!
by AbbeyRex on 2018/06/21 00:30
I’m excited for this! I’ve already uploaded a couple videos to test it out. I’d recommend having a way to look at only thumbnails(full screen), and having a way to not have a video in the background. Also, it would be nice to have a full screen profile view for whatever channel you want to look at! (Similar to looking at the standard IG account pages)
Irrelevant
by cadenmyers_ on 2018/12/30 03:34
In Instagrams latest attempt to spread its horizons, they released this app allowing long videos to be shared. Unfortunately, it’s trash. Only about half of your videos show up to be able to post, videos automatically start playing and the content is rarely relevant to what you like. The worst thing about IGTV is it’s irrelevance. It is a completely useless app, and anything you need to see can be found within the instagram app itself. Don’t waste your time trying to download it, it’s not worth it.
Made my account get an error
by MadatIG on 2019/05/14 09:49
I downloaded the app because I couldn’t find the upload button any more for my Igtv section on my profile. I use the app it uploaded fine then hours later I was locked out of my own profile. Error messege saying where sorry something has gone wrong and on my desktop oops an error has occurred. I completely have no access to my feed or profile. It messed up my access. I have 511k followers and I cannot navigate my own profile !!!!!!!!!!?????
Good concept. Difficult to use. 🙄
by EveKatharine on 2018/06/21 06:18
I think this app has potential but its all just overwhelming, maybe if the background was white it would be better. It’s also annoying how there are all those other accounts right by the ones you are following. It would be easier to have a “Recommended Channels” section that is separate.
I want this to succeed but...
by Joe3b on 2018/06/24 05:21
It gets extra stars for being new and maybe it just needs to find its legs. My problems: At least give me the option to stop the most irritating feature, auto play. I like having a place to land see what I might feel like watching from people I like to see and not having my face suddenly shoved into content. I need good search. I actually like landscape mode I don’t mind maximizing portrait just don’t like loosing my control. With landscape I can go from being immersed to then flipping my phone and all the control and options return to me. Hope you make this platform awesome even if it doesn’t end up better for me.
It needs some getting used to...
by H4n5 28 on 2018/06/21 07:34
I’m liking the layout and style, not to big on watching videos on portrait mode but give it about 15 mins, and you’ll get used to it. This was first suggested to me by a tech related video creator. I can see some IG users getting big on content creation with this app, so there’s definitely potential.
The future is here! At least until something else comes
by villainTee on 2018/06/21 01:34
I’m digging this format. As a creator given this opportunity to create for mobile is challenging and exciting. Look forward to building this other side of video
Snapchat discover but not as good.
by Jacolack on 2018/06/21 03:55
The app feeds like you're forced to watch content, because you are. There must always be something open or playing, from the second you get on. It is a blatant ripoff of Snapchat discover, but with a more diffusicult user interface. To pick content, you have to scroll sidways, and it feels like it is forcing you to watch content instead of pick content that you want to see.
Igtv Camera
by bmillions7 on 2020/07/09 12:30
The button doesn’t pop up sometimes if you want to record a video it could be property annoying if you have something on your mind and want to drop some heat but can’t
Longer videos
by B.VAX on 2020/09/05 04:02
We need to be able to go longer than 15 minutes! That would be nice and the uploads always seem to take a long time. Other than that really cool app.
Worthless app
by Ancnnamwkllclska on 2020/05/29 19:41
Cannot find igtv history, likes, and saved videos. Please fix this. What’s the point of liking/saving a video if you can never find it again. This whole user interface is lacking basic functionality. There’s literally no difference between app version and the igtv on the Instagram app, plus the fact that neither have basic essential functions and are annoying and frustrating to navigate.
Should support horizontal videos
by jokyojojo on 2018/12/27 21:26
I was really excited that our company could post videos longer than 1:00 but really disappointed that it could only be in vertical orientation. I’ve spent thousands on hiring editors to cut down my 2:00 - 3:00 videos to fit the 60 sec cap on instagram. There’s no way in hell Im going to have my guys cut my videos to fit this ridiculous orientation. It’s unfair to professional videographers and production companies to be able to display their work.
IGTV on Instagram
by Brad Brenner 420 on 2020/10/09 16:00
I have to say I love being able to make posts that are longer than a minute and can’t wait to see what new updates will be coming in the future from Instagram 💯👍🏻
Needs editing options!
by WoodlandCravings on 2018/07/13 12:34
One feature that would really help a lot of users would be to rotate videos! The ability to rotate a landscape video to fit into the vertical format of IGTV would help a lot of users! Please please please develop this option! Love the concept and potential for growth with IGTV!
There are shortcomings.
by ndmsmsms on 2018/06/20 21:41
After sharing the video, should come up with the feature to edit the title and description. Ability to copy comments and comments. Comment editing feature should come up. Horizontal appearance support should come up.
what they should add
by Linhle1212 on 2020/06/30 00:07
i wish they would let you search up the titles of videos instead of only allowing us to search for other channels, like i wanna be able to just binge watch a bunch of marching band videos from multiple people’s accounts but i don’t want to specifically watch them from a marching band instagram account i want to watch them from a variety of normal people’s accounts named like "my marching season" or "my marching band experience 2019" yk? it would just be so much better if we could be able to search up titles too
I'm going ham!!
by Davidjohnlife on 2018/06/21 06:03
Listen. I don't care about any one persons opinion if they don't like this app. Im personally going to use this to it's full potential. I look forward to seeing all the creative channels that will soon rize up from this amazing addition.
Crappy App. Why is Instagram/Facebook so Incompetent?
by mctoast on 2020/04/02 14:03
I had a 4:3 aspect ratio video I wanted to upload. This app automatically cropped it to 16:9. I didn’t ask for that. Additionally, the only way I could upload to IGTV was by using this app. You’re supposed to also be able to do that from the Instagram app. but NO, that doesn’t function. Even web uploading does NOT WORK. Stupid that I need a separate app to upload video to IGTV. Time to split Instagram away from Facebook again.
Loving the new take from Instagram!
by Philip Levin on 2018/06/20 22:57
Everything that Instagram is doing with this app is amazing! However, it would be great if they added support for the iPhone X to get rid of those black bars at the top and bottom.
The forced sizing is obnoxious
by Venusvoyagergirl on 2020/10/09 05:36
If you are going to force all videos and thumbnails to be a specific size then make it something we can edit in app so I don’t have to buy 3rd party apps just to resize . Also the search and finding content could be better , hard to find or be found
Very slow upload
by Mosley1213 on 2020/09/22 17:18
While I enjoy making my videos and posting them in the one app they do tend to upload kinda slow most of the time. It’ll even start over after it’s almost complete.
I like it but...
by dzim14 on 2019/11/10 14:27
I like it now that it supports both vertical and horizontal videos but it’s lacking one feature...casting. Facebook gives you the option to cast videos to other devices, shouldn’t this be a standard feature for IGTV too?
This app is so great, but can you make the captions available? Thanks!
by Clrdac on 2020/06/16 20:16
I love this IGTV app, it’s just that I can’t hear certain creators and it would really help if you made captions available. Can you please make a captions button? Please... It would really help that much. Thanks.
LET ME ARCHIVE PREVIEW
by @GetLikeBiebs on 2020/08/28 00:15
I enjoy this Instagram feature very much! It allows for videos to flow without having to scroll multiple times to watch full clip. However, I’m very disappointed that users don’t have the capability to archive the igtv previews freely. If you delete the preview from your feed- if you want it back you have to RE-upload it??? what nonsense is that. Please fix this instagram.
Why limit 1-15 min ?
by Erionziu on 2020/04/02 13:37
First : separating people into “important “ people and the rest “peasants” is completely disgusting! So celebrities have the right to post longer videos ...the rest of us NOT ! Just like Instagram with its swipe up feature 😡. So a small business in a town of 5000 people has no chance of ever being able to get that swipe up feature .
