How does Video scheduling/ posting work on different Social Networks
Here are some important things that you should keep in mind while posting on different Social Networks
Twitter - If your video complies with Twitter’s permitted limitations, it will be posted natively on Twitter. If the video doesn’t comply with even one of the permitted limitations, it will be hosted on our server and a link to the video will be shared. Your audience will be able to watch the video on the Twitter on our Video player.
Example - If the video size is greater than 15MB, the video will be posted as a link. The link will look like this - www.crowdfireapp.com/video/4qXS
Facebook - The video will posted natively.
Instagram - The permitted length of videos on Instagram is 3 seconds to 60 seconds. When you schedule a video Crowdfire will remind you about it with a notification on your phone. When you click on the notification it will open the Instagram app and copy your caption to the clipboard. All you have to do is paste the caption and post!
LinkedIn - LinkedIn doesn’t support video uploads through their APIs. A Crowdfire link to the video will be shared and it will be played through Crowdfire’s video player.
Pinterest - Pinterest doesn’t allow direct video uploads. Videos will appear as an image on Pinterest and when your audience clicks on the image, it’ll take them to our Video player where the video will be played. On mobile, your audience will have an option to open the Video on the browser or on the Pinterest app.
Thumbnail for the videos - We take the first frame of your video as the thumbnail for your video post.
Video title - If your video is uploaded to Crowdfire's server, the title would be same as your saved file name.
