Streaming to Instagram

Instagram being a major player in social media, this would be great. It's been requested by clients - I know there is no public API, but maybe we can push Instagram-Devs to make it happen...

    Absolutely request it of Instagram. We'd like to see it as well but they may be more influenced by users.

    I just searched for an API for instagram video - and came across some code... Might not directly apply to wire cast, but it could be ported, if there are not other libraries available that would work with your development environment.

    Greg Kuhnert We'd have to get officially from Instagram for implementation.

  • Greg Kuhnert  Same goes for us - I won't use the code of someone to stream to our clients official site.

    Users should request Instagram to create an official API for third party developers. We'd like it but Instagram users may have more influence in persuading them.

    Agreed... but let me ask this. If there is a library in circulation with RTSP capabilities - there must be something that Instrgram published... Either way, its not where I am wanting to stream... just saying its out there somewhere :)

     Not necessarily or, at least, not for official third party development. Users are certainly free to experiment.

    Anybody who wants to can currently stream to instagram using unofficial rtmp credential gathering websites. That said, my clients have spoken with the IG teams, and they do not condone this usage. It could break at any given moment, and likely will. It officially breaks their terms of service, and I certainly would warn my clients in a big way, and frequently, that this unofficial usage is highly not recommended. IG doesn't want people to do this, for whatever reason.

     And we are limited by that as developers. We can't break Instagram's terms of service and I'll add this has come up about TikTok as well. 

    For those who want streaming to Instagram from desktop it's important you express that to Instagram. Only when they give the OK legally can we consider this.
