Post YouTube videos to Instagram Story

So we already know how to post a YouTube video to your Instagram feed. 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 actiivty feed as a normal post would. In this instance, we need to click "Post to Story".

4. Enter your Instagram details and Post your story

After the video has been processed, you will be directed to a screen where you can see a preview of your video, and a "Log into Instagram" button. If you are happy with the video then go ahead and click "Log into Instagram" and enter your Instagram username and password, click "Post your video" and you're done! Your video will take a few seconds to be posted to your story.

If you visit your Instagram account you will be able to see that your story has been updated witht he video you just posted from YouTube!
