    Instagram crashes every time when I try to post a video. I have tried opening Task Manager and closing down all exe's and services related to Bluestacks, restarting and IG still crashes. IG & Bluestacks are both updated to current versions.

    Can I upload a gif to instagram using Bluestacks? I am able to upload it to the actual program, but when I click the (+) button the gif isn't moving and I feel like it will post as a still and not a gif.
