Byte_app_creators All black video thumbnails?

I noticed that the user (named above) followed me on instagram. I of course, reciprocated…lol. According to the header on the forum main page, it’s not official. But I was wondering if a video posted on instagram like what he does count towards the view count on byte?
Also, is anyone experiencing a feed of all black thumbnails instead of a video screenshot when the user stated above posts?

No they don’t count toward you Byte Views and yes they are always black for some reason

nope definitely doesn’t count towards byte views, as the videos are manually posted to instagram (no connection to byte)
