San Francisco, August 20 (IANS): Meta-owned Instagram has clarified that it does not prevent creators from sharing their Reels videos on other short-form video platforms like TikTok.
According to previous reports, when trying to download an edited clip to an iPhone on Instagram Reels, the clip’s audio simply disappeared.
“It means that if you want to export Reels footage to use in another app (like TikTok), you have to first publish the Reel to save the sound,” The Verge reported this week.
Instagram said it was a bug and it has been fixed.
“Due to a bug, the Reels download feature is not working as intended for iOS users, and in some cases, audio is missing from downloads; we’re working to fix the issue as soon as possible,” said a spokesperson for Reels. Goal. in the report
According to The Verge, this Instagram solution will be important for creators who prefer to edit outside of TikTok’s poor editing screen.
Meanwhile, when creators make a video on YouTube Shorts, they won’t be able to download the video and post it to other apps without a “YouTube watermark”.
“If you’re a creator downloading your YouTube Studio Shorts to share on other platforms, you’ll now find a watermark added to your downloaded content,” YouTube said in an update.
The new YouTube Shorts feature will roll out in the coming weeks on desktop, and the company plans to expand to mobile in the coming months.
