How To Watch IGTV Videos On A Computer? | Mac & PC | Easy Ways

I’ve seen a lot of people asking this question lately, how to watch IGTV videos on a computer?

When this Instagram feature was launched, it wasn’t clear how to do this, nowadays it is the easiest thing to do.

You won’t be required to download anything.

How to watch IGTV videos on a computer?

There are many ways to do this, but the safest one is by obviously just using Instagram itself.

Like I said, a lot has changed since the day the platform got launched, now you can simply get on your computer, find the profile or channel of the person that you want to watch videos from, and then just click on the IGTV tab.

As you can see from the picture above, if we go to GaryVee’s account, we can easily see the tab located between the ‘Posts’ and ‘Tagged’ tabs.

On a quick note, just remember that if the user has not posted any IGTV at all, this option will not be display.

Other things you should know about IGTV

If you are a creator, there are many things that you might have noticed about IGTV, and there are others that you might have not.

Let’s talk about it.

1- You can use hashtags in your videos

You can use hashtags to make your videos appear in places like the explore page.

Hashtags are a great way to gain views and get discovered on the platform.

In the description of your videos, you would be able to post up to 30 of them, just like any regular post.

If you are trying to grow, then this is an excellent way of doing it.

2- You can have links in the description of your videos

If you have a blog or any other social media that you want to bring traffic to, then IGTV could be a great way to do this.

Make sure to include your links in every video description, and encourage others to check any other project that you might have going on.

Use it as a way to cross-promote your stuff across the internet.

3- You can tag others in the description of your videos

The tags are clickable and will take whoever clicks on them to the profile of your choice.

If you have, let’s say, an art account, then this is a great way to let others know that they can check that out every time they want.

People get noticed every time they do this, just like in every regular post.

If you want to get creative, maybe you can use this as another tool to get featured on other pages.

4- You can share your videos on your stories if you have a channel

If you have already published your first video, and want others to watch it:

Then your Instagram stories are a great way of doing this.

Just make a video or take a picture and click on the “link” sign before you publish it.
