Import iOS Camera Roll Videos to Instagram

Instagram's video feature has been gaining in popularity since its release, making it possible to capture videos to share instantly from any iOS device. Of course jailbreakers are always on the lookout for how an app can be improved. Now the tweak InstaChooser does just that, and adds the ability to import existing videos directly from the iOS Camera Roll.

InstaChooser tweak Cydia iOS

Once installed, InstaChooser can be enabled or disabled via the Settings. When enabled, the tweak adds an Import button to the Instagram video capture screen. Just tap this button and a video less than 15 seconds long can be imported directly into Instagram from the Camera roll.

Once imported, the desired image filter can be applied. The tweak even makes it possible to combine an imported video with captured video before uploading and sharing the finished product to Instagram. Although the tweak may not be as slick as some other iOS mods out there, InstaChooser accomplishes its goal of adding a video import feature to the stock Instagram app.

InstaChooser is available on Cydia from the BigBoss repo for $0.99. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.x with evasi0n. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
