Video getting cut off on Instagram

Instagram posts default to the 1:1 square format, so if you're posting a 16:9 landscape or vertical video, parts of your video could get cut off.

Fortunately, Instagram does allow you to post 16:9 landscape videos as well. You can do this by clicking on the "< >" icon which may look different depending on your phone, but this option will change the aspect ratio of the post.

Alternatively, you can create a square video in Lumen5, or resize one of your existing videos from that video's share page.
