Old Instagram videos lost their sound? Here's what's happening
Instagram has actually had a problem for a few months now. Some of the older videos have lost audio. This is bad news for all those who store their memories on Instagram. There are many people who, due to the limited memory of the phone, post their memories on social networks and think that they are safe there. This time it didn't happen like that.
Videos from 2014 and earlier can be played, but without any sound. Trying to increase the volume or mute the video is futile, as no audio track can be found. This happens on both the Android and iOS apps, and if you open Instagram on the web.
Apparently, Meta is aware of the problem and is working to fix it. However, there is no timeline for when audio may return to older Instagram videos. Of course, this is quite frustrating. Do silent videos make sense?
