Why use Flixier to repurpose content from YouTube to Instagram?

Create Captions Seamlessly

Flixier is an online editor that allows you to efficiently create captions for your Instagram content. This way, even if your community is scrolling on mute, they can enjoy better access to your content. Optimize the creative process by adding automatically generated subtitles and style them as you wish by changing the font, size and placement.

Resize and Reuse

No matter if it’s an Instagram Reel, an Instagram Story, Carousels, or a posted video, you can handily resize video content and not worry about size incompatibility. We recommend the 9:16 aspect ratio for Reels, but you do not need to worry about memorizing all these numbers. Flixier’s resources can smoothly guide you through all the necessary steps.

Expand your Audience 

Your content is no longer confined to the realm of YouTube users only! By reusing snippets from your YouTube video and transforming them into Instagram carousels, Reels, or stories, you are exposing your content to a wider audience. What’s even better is that Flixier helps you automatically generate subtitles in multiple languages, so your content can be a passport to more engagement.

Enjoy a User-Friendly Interface

You no longer need to watch hours’ worth of tutorials or read tedious instruction pages. Flixier sports an easy-to-use interface so you can enjoy a user-friendly and fast experience. Speed up the creative process and really let your imagination show through premium content without any previous video editing experience.


I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.

Steve Mastroianni -

My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.

Evgeni Kogan

I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
