Are there options to share Instagram stories, like on Youtube, on Instagram? If yes, you could try using the HTML option. You would have to activate HTML for the whole forum and set it in your profile.

No there are no options to share IG stories like youtube or IG.

Once you have a link to an IG story, we have to use a program to get the embeded code. We post that embeded code on our forum.

IG stories disappear after 24 hours, so if they are not embedded we loose them. The link is useless after 24 hours.

Right now as you know, we put the youtube link in the youtube icon, and it embeds the vid. We get the embed code right off of IG and post it in our forum.

There is no option to get the embed IG story without finding a program that will convert it.

Right now we are using

Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
 <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
 <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
 Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

</body>
</html>

We have to replace movie.mp4" type="video/mp4 with the IG story link, and post the code which embeds the IG story for everyone to view, whether you have IG or not.

Is it possible to have someone write a program that we can access through the tool bar so we can drop the link just like we do for youtube?

Thank you but that's only for IG posts and video's. There's no such option for Instagram stories.

Instagram stories, are short vid's 10-15 seconds that users post. It's not a IGvideo or post, they are called stories. They are only on their Instagram for 24 hours then they disappear. Here is an example.

<video width="400" height="400" controls> controls="" autoplay="" name="media"><source src="https://scontent-yyz1-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.9793-16/16640323_466892853648992_2350883296159727616_n.mp4" type="video/mp4"></video>

Ok it won't let me post it on this forum. That is the embed code which I got from the link and was able to post on my forum. This is what it looks like. I took a screenshot. If it was a real post, you press play and watch it.



Maybe this is a question for code threads. How can I made an Icon for this? Like the youtube icon, or something we can choose, it would post this in the reply box, then we can add the IG link from the story and it would work. This would be a work around since it appears we can't get an embed code from the forum.

<video width="400" height="400" controls>

Appreciate any help.

I tested on my forum, and I was able to play the video.

Oh good.

So I think the easiest way to do this is if I can get a script or something with this:

<video width="400" height="400" controls>

then when there is an IG story we want to embed, we simply add the link to the script and it will work.

Yes but I had to make up that embed code.

When you get an IG story link it looks like this:

https://www.instagram.com/#&gid=1&pid=1

I figured out that you can inspect element and get this:


<video controls="true" autoplay="true" class="videoStoryItem pswp__video active" style="position: absolute;"><source src="https://scontent-yyz1-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.9793-16/18421147_1851543415168914_90151217514151936_n.mp4"></video>

But it's huge and there's no way to resize. That's why I want this:

<video width="400" height="400" controls> in the tool bar so we can just add it to the beginning of this:

<video controls="true" autoplay="true" class="videoStoryItem pswp__video active" style="position: absolute;"><source src="https://scontent-yyz1-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.9793-16/18421147_1851543415168914_90151217514151936_n.mp4"></video>

<video width="400" height="400" controls><controls="true" autoplay="true" class="videoStoryItem pswp__video active" style="position: absolute;"><source src="https://scontent-yyz1-1.cdninstagram.com/t50.9793-16/18421147_1851543415168914_90151217514151936_n.mp4"></video>

If you read what it says about embedding, it says that the post will resize for different screen resolutions, like for desktop or mobile devices.

In a lot of cases it doesn't automatically resize. With IG posts it defaults to 100% but you have the ability to change the size. With IG stories there isn't the option to resize. That's why I need the code added to the forum, somehow.

Should I bring this conversation to the Script threads?

Alright, here it is... I might get my fingers burnt over this AGAIN because I'm always at the portals of the newest, the latest, the foremost, but pls DON'T blame me. If you wanna know about the capabilities of Instagram, pls, contact Instagram yourself. https://www.instagram.com/developer/embedding/ << will provide you with the latest.

So, no, we don't provide support for it because we can not (and neither can they), but if they can provide us with a solution at some day, we'd be delighted to provide you with any further help for it. Good try tho, and thanks for your interest. We won't be contacting Instagram on your behalf, that's your game, up to you.

For your information, usually, that kind of links (the stories, the vids) will get deleted after 24 hrs., so unless you'll be actively moderating all those links, whoever will be posting them, you, your admins and mods will be doing a heck of a job? I wonder....

Thanks for asking and good luck asking @ Instagram. For all you and I know, they won't change nothin' till the end of the yr. the soonest, so don't pressure us against while they're not able. Instagram has no affiliation or whatever common cause with us at all!

@SWS

I'm well aware of the IG embedding policy and help they offer. I'm talking about IG stories, which I also am well aware of how they operate. They disappear after 24 hours on the person's IG, but if they are embedded, they remain on the forum. We have been embedding them since they started with the new IG Story feature. I am the administrator for the forum, so I'm well aware of what's involved. They do not disappear from the forum after 24 hours, because they have been embedded.

If there is an administrator or moderator that can confirm whether or not I can get someone in the Scripting threads to help me, otherwise this thread is solved.

It's frustrating when there's no way to post an Instagram on to our forum without playing around with a work around.

Why isn't it the same way as a Twitter embed? When I use the embed on IG it doesn't work on our forum but for Twitter it does.
