  • Preliminary information

    Before explaining to you how to put youtube videos on instagram stories, I have to give you some preliminary information about it. In fact, you must know that, as anticipated before, it is not possible to directly share a YouTube video in the stories of Instagram. Therefore, the only possible solution to succeed in the intent is the one that concerns the manual upload of the movie in the stories of the popular photographic social network.


    That said, just in case the YouTube is not in your possession, I will show you how to obtain it, through the procedure for registering the screen of your Android or iOS / iPadOS device. After that, I'll tell you how to upload the video to the stories of Instagram, via the social network app for Android and iPhone.
