Publish or schedule videos to your Twitter profiles, Instagram profiles, or Facebook Pages, profiles or groups. Share just a video, or compose a message as usual and attach a video file to publish with it.
For videos published to Facebook, you have the option to add a video title and category, and for videos published to Facebook Pages, you can customize the thumbnail image that displays for your video. These video details will only appear in Facebook, even when posting to more than one social network.
Video file requirements
Publishing videos to Instagram follows the Instagram notification workflow, and requires the Instagram app and the latest version of the Hootsuite app installed on your mobile device. See Share Posts to Instagram for more details.
To publish a video
- In the compose message box, click Attach media .
- Click choose files to upload, select the video file and then click Open, or drag-and-drop a video file from your desktop.
- Facebook: Under Video Details, click Add a title to enter a title for the video, or select a video category from the drop-down menu.
Categories tag the video to increase discoverability. They are not displayed publicly.
- Facebook Pages: Click the left or right arrows under the thumbnail image to select a thumbnail preview, or click Replace image to upload your own thumbnail.
Videos published to Pages or profiles are also added to the video library of that Page or profile. Videos published to groups are added to the video library of the associated Facebook profile.
The video title is visible when the video is clicked on for viewing.
Note: Large videos may publish after a delay of up to a few minutes when processing. If the publish time is extremely important we recommend scheduling the video at least 60 minutes in advance. This will allow Hootsuite to mitigate the delay by beginning the processing well before the scheduled time.
