To watch IGTV videos from the PC you need to use a simple trick. With Bluestacks, the user emulates the app and manages to take the complete long video platform from Instagram to the computer.
Instagram TV is officially available on the computer through the Instagram Web, but it is not possible to perform all the functions of the mobile app on the desktop version of the service. Through the browser, the user can only upload videos to the account, leaving the video preview unique to the mobile.
