Modern creators are on many social media channels. With dozens of thriving video and photo sharing platforms, creators can grow an audience through different social media communities and share their story everywhere. Kapwing makes it easy to repurpose video and image content for many different channels by trimming, resizing, adding text, adding music, and creating subtitles with smart, fast, on-brand tools. The powerful video editor can supercharge your editing workflow and enable a media team to collaborate in a single digital space, giving creators peace of mind and creative control.
Once you’ve put time into making a video for one social media channel, repost that video everywhere. Each platform has its own requirements, specs, and best practices, so take time to optimize the correct size, length, and text format for best results. Let your voice be heard with micro-content shared across social media and experiment with reaching new fans and followers through new channels and techniques.
Paste the Instagram URL to import the video from the IG app.
Clip the video to the part that you want to share on YouTube or combine with other clips. Resize to landscape for the YouTube feed or 9:16 for YouTube Shorts. Then, position the video in the center, add a blurred background, and edit title text. Don’t forget to generate captions!
When the video looks good, export and download the video file as an MP4. Then, post the new video on YouTube.
Want to drive traffic to your YouTube channel or grow a subscriber base online? Reposting Instagram Reels on YouTube Shorts? Try syndicating short-form video content from other social media platforms to attract new viewers.
YouTube has heavily invested in short-form video in 2022, so it’s a good time to grow your audience using video content posted on Instgram. With a huge global reach, YouTube is also a popular place for creators to monetize their audience, grow their subscriber base, expand their brand, and get more viewers. Resize your canvas to horizontal (16:9 aspect ratio) to share a IG video on your YouTube channel. Embed captions directly into the video, combine videos together to make it into a YouTube compilation, add visual overlays or background music, or merge an intro or outro for best results on YouTube. Kapwing’s video editor also empowers you to export a JPEG from your video for a thumbnail and decorate the thumbnail image with text, cutouts, emojis, and other brand elements. After you’re finished exporting, download the MP4 to upload on YouTube. Make memes, vlogs, montages, and reaction videos or clip together your best moments to share them everywhere. Ideal for new YouTubers and media entrepreneurs of all kinds.
For YouTube Shorts, your video must be <60 seconds, so make sure to shorten the video in Kapwing and add the #shorts in the description before uploading.
