In PromoRepublic you can schedule videos to Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and Instagram Business

Although, video publishing is limited for Pinterest and Google My Business. When attempting to post a video to these platforms, it won't be published, but a preview instead.

In LinkedIn videos will be played natively in the feed as shown on the screenshot below on condition that the video meets all the requirements listed below:

  • Minimum video length: 3 seconds

  • Maximum video length: 10 minutes

  • Minimum file size: 75KB

  • Maximum file size: 5 GB

  • Orientation: Horizontal or vertical. Note: Vertical videos are cropped into a square in the feed.

  • Aspect ratio: 1:2.4 or 2.4:1

  • Resolution range: 256×144 to 4096×2304

  • Frame rates: 10 – 60 frames per second

  • Bit rates: 192 kbps – 30 Mbps

  • File formats: ASF, AVI, FLV, MPEG-1, MPEG-4, MKV, QuickTime, WebM, H264/AVC, MP4, VP8, VP9, WMV2, and WMV3.

  • Formats that are not supported include: ProRes, MPEG-2, Raw Video, VP6, WMV1as.

So, how can you add a video to a post? There are two ways you can start the post creation: 

  • Create a post from scratch;

  • Schedule a post in a certain Time Slot.

Create a Post

Click on the Create Post button located in the top bar menu.

In the post editor form upload the video file from your computer.

Right away you will see the video being uploaded.

Time Slot

In the Calendar select a certain time slot by hitting the blue New Post button.

Choose Create Post from Scratch.

Then pick a video from your computer as described above. 

When it's time for the post to be published, be prepared that it will be live in the feed in several minutes, because the video needs to be converted on the PromoRepublic server first and then on the social platform end.

Also please mind these minor, but very important nuances when preparing video content:

  • One video is allowed to be posted at a time;

  • You can't post more than one video or a video and a GIF or an image at a time;

  • Change video name before uploading it, because you can't edit the file name inside PromoRepublic;

  • When re-posting a video post, the video itself won't be re-published, but only the text if any. That is why you'll need to re-upload the file as you initially did.

For future updates, we are working on preview selection and the possibility to change the video name directly in PromoRepublic interface, and improve the video re-posting process.
