  Instagram might soon let you post videos up to an hour long Instagram is considering doing away with video length constraints, according to The Wall Street Journal, which tonight published a report about “a new feature” that would let users post long-form clips of up to an hour. That would open new creative flexibility for users and bring Instagram closer in line with YouTube and its own parent company, Facebook. The plan is described as tentative, so Instagram could ultimately decide against radically extending the maximum running time of videos on its platform.

Patrick Dangerfield (born 5 April 1990) is the vice-captain of the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League ( AFL ) and President of the AFL Player's Association.

"I think that's a bit of a shared view from quite a few players that it wouldn't hurt to reduce games," Dangerfield told SEN on Thursday.

"Something like 100 minutes. I wouldn't see huge changes, just something that's not as currently long as what it is now.

"We put a huge demand on our players, particularly with scheduling with five- and six-day breaks.

"There'd be potential to have more of those throughout the season and balance up the scheduling for all clubs if we were able to reduce the length of games.

Reducing the interchange cap from its current limit of 90 is another concept being seriously explored.

But Dangerfield was not an advocate of cutting the number - which was previously trimmed from 120 to 90 in 2016.

"It was certainly discussed and it's certainly been hotly debated among players, there's plenty that aren't for it," he said.

"We have a few players that are happy to reduce it, it wouldn't affect their game."
