        If you’re blocked, it is possibly temporary. You’ll have to wait until Instagram lets you go live again. When they do, try not to repeat the actions that got you blocked.

      Hello, this may be a result of using the wrong camera. Is there a chance that you are using the back camera on the live session? Try to flip it to the front one.

      Seems like this glitch started recently on Instagram. If you haven’t included banned words, there is an error on Instagram. Try to restart the app. Delete and reinstall if necessary.

    After going live, I go to my live archive and share the video to my feed along with a video preview to my main profile. But, I’ve noticed that some of my older live videos have disappeared from both my videos tab and from my primary feed. Is this because IG deletes the archive in 30 days…and with it any evidence of the video from across my account, even when it has been shared as a post?
