Videos from Instagram not showing up

Hi folks!

I have been linking videos from YouTube in my app, Life School. They have been working well.

However, I am pivoting towards more Instagram content. I’m producing the videos with Final Cut Pro, exporting them, airdropping them and uploading to IG.

The IG link is not loading into Glide though… Should I host these somewhere else? They are square so not sure they work well on YouTube…

Instagram videos cannot be embedded, on any website or app.

Yeah that makes sense. Any suggestions for how I should host this?

Dig deep enough to find the mp4 link for the video, then you can host it.

Step 1: Open the Instagram video link on a browser.
Step 2: Access the page source.
Step 3: Copy the link from the og:video tag. Make sure you copy the whole link, when I tried to copy just to the .mp4 part, it doesn’t play.
