When Instagram introduced its video service back in June, Instagram on Android required to always record the video with the Instagram app which could cause some trouble, for instance if you want to share a video on Instagram which you have recorded before with the nativ camera app. Now, with tonight's released Instagram 4.1 version, it's also possible to share videos from your photo library which means you can now share pre-recorded video files. Doesn't sound too important but it is because it means you can finally upload HTC Zoe photos (the three second videos of a photo), as well as HTC Video Highlights to Instagram, even if Highlight Videos are normally 30 seconds long and Instagram cuts them after 15 seconds.

While there's finally a better use for HTC Zoe photos, you can unfortunately not stitch a couple of Zoe photos within the Instagram app but you can upload only one. Alternatively, you can nevertheless create a Highlight Video and upload the first 15 seconds to Instagram.

In addition to enable video uploads from the gallery, Instagram has also fixed a bug which finally allows video recordings for all devices running ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich).

The Instagram 4.1 update for Android is now available on Google Play.

Cheers ~ Arne
