X Pro Media Integration
Sprout Social integrates with the X Pro Media API so you can use your enhanced media privileges directly in Sprout. When you select your X profile in Compose, you can see which profiles can leverage the advanced functionality.
Rather than publishing directly on X or X's Media Studio, you can publish through Sprout with added functionality.
With this integration, you can upload longer videos and customize your video metadata, including the title of the video and a custom thumbnail to publish. You can publish videos up to 1 GB and 10 minutes long.
To publish a video using the X Pro Media Integration:
- Navigate to Publishing in Sprout.
- Click to open the Compose window.
- Select your X profiles, add text and attach your desired video.
- Enter the video title in the textbox to the right of the video thumbnail.
- Click the arrows underneath the thumbnail to browse for a generated thumbnail and then select your desired thumbnail OR click on the top-right corner of the current thumbnail to upload your own.
