Instagram Stories is one of the most popular features of this social network. Suppose you recorded a beautiful video 1-2 minutes long, but the length of the video in the story is limited to 15 seconds. So you won't be able to upload the full video to Stories. Fortunately, there are a couple of useful apps that you can use to split a video into multiple small clips with just a couple of clicks.
How to split a long video for Instagram Stories:
- Download the Story Cutter app.
- Open the video with Story Cutter.
- Publish the resulting clip to Instagram.
