IGTV videos can be shared on Facebook from the Instagram app, Instagram Web or the dedicated IGTV app. If your IGTV videos fail to be shared on Facebook, you can try other platforms / devices. In other words, use the IGTV app if you can’t share your videos on the Instagram app or on the web. You must also make sure that your application (Instagram or IGTV) is up to date.

Still can’t share IGTV videos on Facebook? Then move on to the other solutions listed below.

Note: The fixes in this guide apply to Android and iOS devices.

1. Reconnect the Facebook account

2. Check IGTV status

If you’re still unable to share IGTV videos on Facebook, check to see if the IGTV service is up and running. The problem could come from the end of Instagram; the IGTV server could be down, for example.

You should check with your friends to see if they are facing similar issues. You can also use third-party tools to check if Instagram’s IGTV status. DownDetector is a reputable platform that monitors the status of websites in real time to detect outages and other service interruptions.

If the Facebook sharing problem persists with your IGTV videos, check that the service is working properly. You can check the status of IGTV via the button below.

3. Link the Facebook page to Instagram
