Learn more about Instagram Story Video Ads

These full-screen vertical ads appear between Instagram user Stories for up to 15 seconds. People can take action to watch up to 60 seconds. Upload the highest-resolution-source video available without letter or pillar boxing (no black bars). Most file types are supported. However, we recommend H.264 compression, square pixels, fixed frame rate, progressive scan and stereo AAC audio compression at 128+ Kbps.

Consider leaving roughly 14% (250 pixels) of the top and bottom of the video free from text and logos to avoid covering these key elements with the profile icon or call to action. This means, if your video is 1080x1920, ensure that key elements appear within a 1080x1420 title-safe area. The technical specifications are:

  • Video ratios: 9:16 and 16:9 to 4:5
  • Video file size: 4 GB max.
  • Video length: 1 to 60 seconds
  • Video captions: Not available
  • Video sound: Optional
  • Video thumbnail images that consist of more than 20% text may experience reduced delivery.

By far the easiest program that I have used for making videos. Typito helps me look professional, add value, humor, and has led to higher click-throughs to videos on my website.


Not everyone has access to, or the chops to use Final Cut Pro or Adobe After Effects. Typito allows you to stitch or cut clips, add overlay titles, motion graphics, social media cards, and lower thirds. It allows even rookie editors to create magic.


Typito is like the Canva version of online video editing software. Editing aspects are fairly easy to jump in and use without having to watch any tutorials. Message the customer support team, they are very hands-on.
