Today we are excited to announce that Latergramme now allows users to upload, schedule and share video for Instagram via the Latergramme web app!
Quick Guide To Scheduling Instagram Video With Latergramme
To get started scheduling your Instagram videos through Latergramme, first login to the Latergramme web app.
From here you can select a video file from your computer, drag and drop the file onto the upload box, or import directly from either Dropbox or Google Drive. Latergramme can accept most video file formats up to 50MB in size and that are at least 3 seconds in length.
While the video finishes uploading, you can add your caption and hashtags, then click save to add the content to your library. Once the video has finished processing, you will be able to set the date and time you want your video to be published.
Just as with Latergramme image scheduling, you will receive a push notification on your phone at the scheduled time and can then easily push your video live to Instagram!
Latergramme makes scheduling, managing and posting your video content for Instagram simple and easy!
6 Tips For Creating Instagram Video Content
1 – Audio/Narration | You have the choice to use the audio of the video clip, add in narration or music after you have finished filming, or have the video play without any sound. Each option has its merits depending on the style and message of your video – see what works best and resonates with your audience.
2 – Play With Angles | You don’t need to hold the camera in one spot or shoot in one 15 second long clip. Instead, you can stitch together different clips and play with angles or perspectives to put together something special and unique that will truly grab your audience’s attention.
3 – Mix It Up | Try different styles and formats for your videos. Stop motion or a flipbook style video created out of still images are great ways to add something special to your account while showcasing your brand or product.
4 – UGC | Instagram has a huge, passionate community of content creators. Connect and build relationships with your community to find user-generated content (UGC) that is relevant to your brand and message to share on your own Instagram feed.

I hope many of you got to enjoy this rare spectacle for yourselves! I was extremely lucky that the weather here was so clear, and I really enjoyed photographing the eclipse through all its stages. #Eclipse, #Moon, #SuperMoon, @NatGeo, @NatGeoCreative, @TimLaman A video posted by National Geographic (@natgeo) on
