Why aren't views showing up on my video?

It may take some time before a view shows up in a video's view count. If views aren't showing up on your video, try checking back later. Note that you're not able to see the number of views for videos that you've shared as part of a post with multiple photos and videos.

Also, keep in mind that a video's view count only includes views from within the Instagram app, and not from other places like an embedded post or on desktop. If your account is set to private, you may not see the view count until your video has reached a certain number of views.

View counts will only show up on videos that were uploaded after November 19, 2015.
