How to Upload H.265 Videos to Instagram?

To keep pace with the mainstreaming, many multimedia devices, video sharing sites have added the support of the HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding ) codec. But Instagram still doesn't support H.265 codec videos, therefore, you can't upload H.265 video to Instagram by now.
