    I know that's not allowed on YouTube but what about Instagram? Say I upload a 1 minute video of a workout and then add some popular song or music would Instagram take the video down?

    I think they have an algorithm to detect copyrighted content

    Googling the question gets a lot of answers. Are the answers confusing or contradictive?

    they are contradictive. Some say you may get away with it and others say your videos will be taken down soon once Instagram finds out so I wanted to get better opinions here.

    If Instagram finds out, it will be taken down, if not, it will be left alone.

    I guess after watching this video, the answer is no :(



    I'm gonna try that Magisto app to add some non copyrighted music

    Magisto has some nice tunes sand makes nice effects and transitions for the movie

    Nevermind that Magisto app, the effects and transitions are nice, but the output quality of the video is utter trash despite me selecting high quality in the settings.

    Regardless of if the website takes it down automatically, it's not fair use and therefore would be against copyright law (at least in the US)

    Well I tried my luck, posted a few videos with audio soundtrack, they went through just fine.

    Today I got an email from Instagram that one of my videos has been removed so I'm not going to do this anymore:
