Hi @SugaAbah 

Good question.

We’ll need more context about the Zap step you are trying to use.

Please provide more screenshots with how your Zap step is configured.

i follow all the steps tutorials from the zapier video but they keep saying error, is it a bug problem?

Hi @SugaAbah! I see your trying to move a video over to Twitter from Instagram, unfortunately, this does in fact look like a bug.

Hi @Lawris 

I’ve also added you to the Bug Report.

We aren't currently able to update members on precise bug statuses or estimated timeframes until the issue is resolved. There are many factors at play when addressing a bug, so it's challenging to predict when a bug will be fixed.

I’m facing the same issue too

Hey there - I’ve added ya’ll to the bug report.

I’m curious is it possible to check all of the extensions for the original files uploaded to Instagram? The reason I ask, is Twitter recommends use of AAC LC audio codecs in videos, amongst a few other recommendations. More on that here.

So for example if the original file details looks like this:

we’ll continue to see this error and it won’t upload since it doesn’t meet Twitter’s requirements. The most straight forward solution would be to ensure all content being loaded to Instagram also meets the Twitter’s requirements referenced above.

I hope some of this helps! 🧡

Hey there, @MediaMaven - thanks for letting us know.

Before I add you to the bug report are able to double check the file extensions? I left a comment above explaining why this may be happening and just want to confirm that isn’t the underlying cause first. 🙂

Appreciate your help!
