Activate the ‘publish preview’ tab before sharing
This ‘Add preview’ tab is very easy to activate, you just have to press the icon with a plus symbol that is always used to add content to your Instagram account . When you press it, you will have to go on to add the video you want to upload and nearby you will look for an option with a switch that says ‘Publish a preview’. This is as simple as taking a survey within Instagram .
It should be noted that to share an Instagram TV video as if it were a Feed, you can take the link of the video or if not you can also download the video and then re-upload it. Among these two options, the most recommended to use is the first, since it takes little time. In addition to the Instagram Feed, the platform offers the function to create a Story Highlight .

So that you are fully prepared when uploading a feed , below we are going to explain how to upload one using the two highlighted methods.
For videos that you are going to upload

Once there, edit some details to the video if you want and activate the switch that says ‘Publish a preview’. When you share a video on the Instagram feed, it will be published on your profile as well as when you add a featured story with a photo that you liked very much.
If the IGTV video is already on the platform
When the video is on Instagram TV, things change a bit. First, you must start looking for the video you want to download , when you find it, press the ‘More options’ icon and copy the link to it. Then, paste that link into an application that helps you download videos from Instagram.
To finish the process, add the video to Instagram TV, activate the ‘Post Preview’ switch and upload the video to your profile. This is the process to upload an Instagram video to the feed. The process for computers changes a little more, since you must enter the Instagram website , download the Download Manager , download the video and then you can upload it.
The options for the preview of the video may change because it is the Instagram website and not the application, but it is not that it will vary that much. Anyway , with all this you would finish learning how to share an IGTV video in the feed.
