Resize Your Video For Instagram TV

By FonePaw | Apr 30 , 2019

If you post videos that are taken directly via Instagram camera, you don't have to consider the video dimension of IGTV. But if you want to upload videos taken by digital camera or made in computer to IGTV, you need to get to know IGTV video dimension. Here are the video requirements of IGTV and if your videos fail to meet the requirements, follow the below steps to resize video for IGTV.


IGTV video dimensions

IGTV videos are vertical. Here are the size requirements of IGTV videos.


1. Video time length: between 15 seconds and 10 minutes.
2. Video file format: MP4 file format.
3. Video resolution: the video must be vertical (rather than horizontal), and the aspect ratio is 9:16.
4. Video frame rate: 30 FPS (frames per second) or above; 720p or above.
5. Video size: The file size of the video within 10 minutes should not exceed 650MB.

When your video format does not meet the upload requirements of IGTV, you can use a video editor to edit the video. Here we use FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate, a simple-to-use video editing software for Windows PC.

Also, IGTV videos have a time limitation. To upload successfully, you may need to edit videos and delete unnecessary clips. PawEditor can also do this.


We have just imported the video into the software and completed a 90-degree rotation. Now let's learn how to cut and delete unnecessary parts of the IGTV video.


1. Find the video in the timeline, Move the cursor to the part you want to cut, and you need to find an icon of the scissors.
2. Click on the scissors icon, and the video is clipped at the cursor position.
3. Find the end of the clip you want to delete and click the scissors button. Now you will find that the video is divided into three segments.
4. Click on unnecessary video clips, find a button for a small trash can, and click to delete the clip.
