Post YouTube videos to your Instagram Story

So we already know how to post a YouTube video to your Instagram. But what if you want to post a clip from a YouTube video to Instagram as a story?

Well, you're in luck! You can do this as part of YT to IG. And it's super easy, just follow these simple steps:

1. Sign up for a (free) YT to IG account

Posting YouTube videos to your Instagram story is a Pro feature, you can sign up for a 14 day free trial to use it now, here:

2. Paste the link to the YouTube video into the Pro tool

After signing up, you will be directed to the home page of your Pro account.

Much the same as using the standard youtube to instagram tool, to start the process all you need to do is paste the link into the box and click "Let's go!".

3. Choose a section of the video and click "Post to Story"

At this point you will need to choose which section of the video you would like to post. Try to choose something that will be valuable and engaging for your followers. For example, you can probably cut out an intro and go straight into the important content.

Use the two buttons on the slider bar to indicate the start and end time of your video clip.

Once you are happy with your clip, you will notice that there are two buttons at the bottom of the page "Post to Feed" and "Post to Story". If you click "Post to Feed", this will post to the activity feed as a normal post would. In this instance, we need to click "Post to Story".

4. Download your video

Your video will be sent to you via email so you can download it on your phone. Now all you need to do is open the Instagram app and post your video to your story - and that's it!
