Over the past three years, Instagram has grown into a huge community. A community with more than 3.3 million users across the globe. Each year, or each month the number of registered users is increasing at a rapid pace. With this increasing user base, Instagram is thriving to come with exciting and interesting features to attract more and more users.

The latest update includes introducing video on Instagram. The new video feature brings you another way to share your stories. But, as of now you can not upload a video which is longer than 15 seconds. So, if your video is between 3 - 15 seconds, you can upload it to Instagram.

Uploading videos from your phone is currently only available for the iPhone and Android apps. So, if you have an Apple or Android phone, read the following step by step process to share a video on Instagram which was earlier saved on your phone.

Share video on Instagram that are saved on phone:

1. Launch the Instagram application on your phone.

2. Tap 'Camera' icon at the bottom of the app.

3. Tap 'Video' icon to switch from camera to video.

4. Tap the box in the bottom-right corner to go to your phone's video album or gallery.

5. Pick the video you want to upload (on iPhone, tap Next at the top.)

6. Choose which 15 seconds of the video you want to share by placing your finger on the video strip at the bottom and sliding left to choose where the clip starts playing.

7. Drag the blue slider above the video strip to choose where the clip ends. 8. Tap Add (iPhone) or the 'right arrow' icon (Android) at the top.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
