Maybe it will end up being a great platform
It lacks some basic video functionality like tapping the middle of the screen to pause or the left/right side to rewind/fast forward. The playback menu is really hard to see against a white background (see Philip DeFranco's videos). Also, it would be nice to be able to close a video I'm not interested or at least somehow auto pause it while I'm browsing.
And this might sound weird, but here's my biggest complaint - as an adult with a job and responsibilities, I need to immediately be able to see what time it is. It would be helpful if the time (and battery life, etc.) was shown whenever the title and playback menu is visible. Sometimes functionality is more important than aesthetic design.

This app is a great idea, the problem is it only lets me post vertical but I usually film in horizontal and the fact that I can’t use my videos now is frustrating. So can you make it so you have the option to post vertically or horizontally.
Also trying to find videos is incredibly confusing and annoying. There’s always some video playing in the background whether you want it or not. Even going to your channel doesn’t make it go away. And you can’t make it go away either. And then browsing is difficult because it just has one strip at the bottom of the screen instead of having them fill the whole screen with videos or having the layout be the same as the regular instagram so it makes more sense. The whole thing just looks messy and I can’t stand looking at it.
IGTV NEEDS this one feature
Instagram continues to dominate the social media scene and is even working its way now into dominating the media scene as well with IGTV. HOWEVER, if you do not give users the option to follow someone without giving them a secondary option to unfollow from IGTV, mute Stories, and mute Posts. There are options right now to 1.) mute stories and 2). Mute stories and posts. But what if someone wants options other than those? It’s SO restricting. Many people will start unfollowing their favorite accounts just because there IGTV is annoying. There is no option right now to distinguish IGTV account follows from Instragram post and story follows. Give us the freedom and the options please. IGTV has huge potential with these options added.
Stop trying to convince people that vertical videos are the future.
It’s a good idea to finally allow creators to upload higher quality and longer videos, but why limit it to vertical viewing? Is it really that inconvenient for people to turn their phones to view a video the way it’s meant to be viewed? Instagram needs to get off its high horse and not limit creators to compromising the amount of information people can see. Content is best viewed horizontally. We don’t watch movies vertically. We don’t flip our TVs to watch. There are filmmakers would would actually love to get real support from Instagram and not limit it to people who don’t care about quality.

I think it’s good if you want to post short videos but I came here to post an hour long video and I got denied saying it needs to be 1 to 15 minutes long so I was like okay fine I didn’t care but then I’m scrolling and a Camilla Cabelo has a 20 minute long video uploaded make it make sense I think you should just let ALL of us not just celebrities post longer videos it’s aggravating because you can obviously make us able to post longer videos you just choose not too it’s annoying it’s like a “I would but you’re not worth my time because you aren’t famous” it’s completely stupid. Maybe this why your rating is low...just saying...

Not the best nor the worst, but I’m going to be very completely honest with this app. When you record a video on the app and post it. It won’t ever post and don’t expect it to post because it won’t post. I waited a whole 2 hours and nothing. So it’s better if you record it on you’re camera app. And then post it and it should post within 5-10 minutes, depending how long the video is.
We need few things..
Supporting higher resolutions would be appreciated. Let people have the Choice to go between standard and HD quality (up to 1080p hopefully, its 2018 😬).
More importantly, we need the support of horizontal videos!. Users are already rotating their videos to the right and left and have to turn my phone with that. Support horizontal videos for people who wants to use it. I get it, phones are held vertically, but most people who watch longer videos will turn their phones horizontally anyway. There isn’t that left to work with when you have to crop the video that much!
Great concept, unfortunately, I am very disappointed in the apps lack of functionality. I cannot find a way of editing, or deleting a video. To err is human and I am a novice, and one who is still navigating my way through the ways of video social media, user friendly is going to be very important to me. In other words, a simple means of being able to make corrections to my posts is essential. I find it difficult to believe that the IG developers did not think to add such a basic function; therefore, I can accept that, maybe, I am not seeing it. That said, it should be more obvious.
IGTV is a good app that help people to watch and enjoy from good videos especially when in some places you tube doesn’t run and people maintain tiered from seeing videos then IGTV app come and help students utilize from this innovative creativity app and can use the useful information save in this app I recommend please utilize this useful app and appreciate developers I wish success in world wide
This app is a great idea, and I think it’s great that we finally have a good vertical video app. Unlike most others, I actually enjoy vertical video. However, it seems like this is more for people who have a large following. The categories are, “For you”, “Following”, and “Popular”. I would like it for newer people to have a chance on igtv, because as it stands now, it seems to be only for people with a lot of followers.
