Instagram API changes and what it means for you

Recently Instagram made some changes to its API and it has changed the way ScreenScape users can use this popular image-sharing service in their ScreenScape displays.

Connect ScreenScape Digital Signage to Instagram

What changed?
Instagram has removed the “New Media from Feed” trigger.  This triggers when a photo or video is posted to an account you follow. Read Tech Crunch’s article on reasons for this change.

Who will this affect?
If you use this “New Media from Feed” trigger your feed will be empty and this content will be skipped in your playlist.

What now?
If you haven’t already, please update your Zap to use another trigger such as “New Media Posted”.  This triggers when a photo or video is posted to your account.  Once updated, your content will resume playback.
