We previously covered “How to link Instagram to YouTube” and also “How to link YouTube to Instagram” and we don’t want to talk about these topics anymore. But, when we say “how to share YouTube video on Instagram” we mean exactly how to embed the video itself and upload it on Instagram as a post or story after editing it with a professional online video editor. So, let’s jump into the solution(s) without wasting time!

How to Share YouTube Video on Instagram Posts?

Unluckily, there is no way to share a YouTube video on Instagram posts directly using the official YouTube website or app. The only thing you can do using YouTube’s share button is to share a video’s link to your friends through Instagram direct messages. But there’s no need to worry! Here’s a great third-party app that allows you to directly publish YouTube videos on Your Instagram posts: AiSchedul

AiSchedul is a professional Instagram scheduler app that helps you manage your Instagram accounts in a more professional environment. To share a YouTube video on Instagram posts using AiSchedul, just follow these steps:

  2. Then, on your dashboard, go to the “POSTS & SCHEDULING” tab and open the “SCHEDULER”.
  3. Here, click on the schedule button and choose feed.
  4. Now, just copy the YouTube video URL you want to share on Instagram posts and paste it on the “YouTube URL” box.

That’s it! As you see in the following picture, the video uploads to AiSchedul and also will be split into pieces to fit in Instagram video limits.

How to Share YouTube Video on Instagram Story?

Now, you know how to share videos from YouTube to your Instagram posts directly. But what if you want to share a YouTube video on an Instagram story? Well, the best solution here would be to download the video, upload it to your stories, and link the story to the YouTube video URL. So, let’s see how to download a YouTube video!

How to Download a Video From YouTube?

You may think that it’s impossible to download the YouTube videos right in the app, but actually, it is possible but only in case you have the YouTube premium. However, if you don’t want to use the YouTube premium, there are many websites and even Telegram Bots that will do this for you. KeepVid, y2mate , Videoder, and Snaptube are some of them.

Here’s s step-by-step guide to download YouTube Video and Upload on Instagram (the best way):

Step 1) Find the YouTube video you want to share and copy its link.

Step 2) Paste the copied link in a YouTube downloader. For instance, you can use clipconverter.cc or some downloader bots such as @utubebot on Telegram messenger. 

Step 3) Now, the only step that remains is to upload the downloaded video on Instagram. For this step, which is also the last one, you can open Instagram and normally share the intended video directly from your mobile phone on the feed, as a story, or even on IGTV. 

But, what if the video doesn’t fit in the Instagram dimensions? And also how to make sure that the video length satisfies the Instagram video length limits

Well, here comes AiSchedul again! Using the scheduler here, simply upload your video without caring about its length. Then, you see that it splits the story into proper pieces. Also, you can paste the YouTube URL into the “Connect the post to an external URL” box to link your story to the video easily!

How To Share Youtube videos on IGTV?

Another way to share YouTube video on Instagram is to share it on IGTV and add its link to the IGTV description. Actually, on IGTV you can share longer videos and you may be able to share the complete version. But if not, try to share its URL. Fortunately, Instagram allows users to share clickable links on their IGTV descriptions. And hence, you can copy and paste the intended video URL and ask people to watch it on YouTube. 

BTW, I recommend you use AiSchedul to share on IGTV from a PC and schedule your videos

How To Share YouTube Videos through Instagram Bio URL?

Another way to share YouTube video on Instagram is to share the video link on Instagram bio. As you all know, Instagram allows you to share one clickable link on your Instagram bio, so you can simply copy the intended YouTube video URL and paste it on your bio. But what if you want to share multiple videos simultaneously? 

Unfortunately, this is one of the worst Instagram limitations and seems problematic. But don’t worry, AiSchedul is here to save the day! But how?

What AiSchedul does is creating a landing page for your bio link that includes all the links you want to share on your bio.

Actually, this link-in-bio tool lets you use widgets to connect to other social media accounts. And hopefully, one of the supported ones is YouTube. So, to link to your YouTube channel and videos, you can use its widget and create an eyecatching environment for people who interact with your page.

Also, using it you can add several customized buttons to your Instagram bio link and leverage it for selling products. So, as you see it is really useful and amazing and you need to give it a try for free


To sum it up, you may need to share YouTube video on Instagram for so many reasons. Especially, since Instagram deletes music videos due to copyright laws, it would be a great idea to post a music video on Instagram to avoid this issue. you have 4 simple ways to share YouTube videos on Instagram. The most direct one is to download it using a video convertor and then upload it on Instagram. But, due to the Instagram limitations for video lengths and dimensions, using the official app you may need to waste a lot of time. However, using AiSchedul, you can simply check the dimensions, trim, and edit your videos and share them on the feed, stories, and IGTV. So, give it a chance and enjoy being a professional Instagrammer.
