Instagram: Here’s How to Post a Video Without Sound

Follow our guide to remove the sound from a video before sharing it to Instagram

Have you ever wanted to remove the sound from a video before sharing it to Instagram? Our guide will show you how to do just that.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the “plus” button at the bottom of the screen to begin creating a new post.

Step 2: Tap the video you’d like to share. Note: If you don’t want to share a video from your device’s library, you can record a new video with the app’s camera by tapping “Video” in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Next” in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 4: Tap the speaker icon at the top of the screen to turn off the video’s sound. The icon will change to reflect your choice (see the second image below).

With this change made, once you post the video to your feed, it will always be silent, even if viewers tap the video in an attempt to hear sound.
