‘Instagram’ Gets Video Recording Capability

by Marianne Schultz

Facebook held a press event today to announce the addition of video recording and sharing to Instagram, the photo sharing social networking service it acquired last year. Videos of up to 15 seconds in duration can now be captured with the latest versions of the app for iOS and Android devices. Several new filters are also available explicitly for editing captured videos.

Version 4.0 of Instagram for the iPhone is live now in the App Store and can be downloaded for free. A new video recording button is accessible in the capture screen and similar to Twitter’s Vine app, you press and hold this button to record. You can record a single continuous video or stop and start as you please to capture different scenes or angles within the same video using either the rear or front-facing camera.

When it comes to editing your videos, you can delete clips on the capture screen. Once you’ve captured the clips you want to keep in your video, you can apply one of 13 available filters and smooth out movement with the press of a virtual button that does some image stabilization magic. Before sharing a video, you can select a single scene that will act as the cover frame in the Instagram stream.

Here’s a promo video showcasing the new features:

Instagram for iPhone debuted in 2010 and it’s been a regular in the Top 200 Free iPhone Apps list since then. Earlier this year, the service surpassed 100 million users and the addition of video puts it up against Twitter’s own Vine video recording and sharing app that allows users to share up to six seconds of video.

    Facebook officials should have kept the length of allowed video sharing within 10 seconds. The best thing about vine is that watching a video don’t take too much of your time but with 15 seconds video you need more time to see what your friends shared.

  2. Narender Chopra

    Instagram Video is totally a fail. It could be great if video duration was less than 10 Seconds.

  3. Kishore

    Instagram introduced video to its app in June to let users record and share brief videos of three to 15 seconds in length

    Instagram videos has not worked out as they anticipated it to be but there is still hope that something might get worked out in the coming updates. They should work on length of the videos on Instagram.

    I love instagram for use as creative sharing of #poetic ideas, images and feedback. Started using video today with hiccups- loaded four only one went through the slow 22 minute process to upload 9 seconds of #video, sound and #poetry. As newbie to #video #instagram and lover of instagram I will learn to orchestrate the steps

    “Vine” is a good program but may need some bugs fixed. The best feature I like about Instagram Video is after making your video, you can apply one of 13 filters.

    Best thing I love about Instagram Video is When it comes to editing your videos, you can delete clips on the capture screen. Once you’ve captured the clips you want to keep in your video, you can apply one of 13 available filters and smooth out movement with the press of a virtual button that does some image stabilization magic.
