Short Step By Step Guide to Uploading Edited Videos to TikTok From Your Laptop or PC

Step 1:
You need a software tool called an “Android Emulator.” 

What the hell is that?

An Android Emulator is an application that runs on your PC that pretends to be an Android Phone.

There are mirroring apps and a slew of other solutions. I like using the FREE one below.

Step 3:
Open up the install file:

It takes 2-3 minutes. Relax.

TikTok is the only app I’m emulating an android phone. 

Step 7:
Next, you’ll be prompted to create or sign in to the play store account. 

Google Play sign in

I suggest you sign up with an existing email.

Now you have access to the play store. This will give you the ability to download apps just like a regular android phone.

That’s why Android emulators rock!

Once the video uploads, it might appear choppy in the TikTok editor inside of the Android emulator. Don’t worry.

That’s just how it goes. I promise the file isn’t corrupted. 

How can I find My drafts in TikTok on a different device

IMPORTANT – Drafts in TikTok can only be edited using the same device.

Basically you can’t go from emulator to mobile device (that would be too easy right)?  

You should see the timeline running below the video. The still frames shouldn’t appear corrupted.

Add a description, effects, stickers, song, hashtags, and text prior to saving it as a draft. Here is another way how to add Text to Video.

This actually improves engagement quick a bit. 

Looks like you’re all set.

Nothing additional is required if you already edited the video prior to uploading it to TikTok right?

This is why we shoot vertically btw

Be aware that once you publish a video, there is no way to edit it later.

I’ll put out a future guide on increasing engagement in the future if people really like this growth hack.

You should have done all the sound editing prior to uploading anyway… but it’s all gravy.

Last steps!

Add hashtags and a description of your TikTok video prior to submitting it. 

IMPORTANT: Your description goes at the bottom of your video. It may cover the bottom 3rd of a video shot/uploaded vertically.

Method 3) How to use WhatsApp to Upload Videos to TikTok

Software downloads and transferring videos to a emulation tool can be time-consuming.

You still don’t get the same level of user experience if you do the above methods.

How to transfer videos from your PC to your iPhone [using whatsapp]

Step 1:
Download WhatsApp for your desktop

Step 2:
Next, set up your account by going to WhatsApp app on your phone > settings > then capturing the QR code on the camera.

Upload video to your whatsapp on desktop or PC then download it onto your whatsapp on your mobile

Step 3:
Save your own phone number as a user.

Step 4:
Create a group and add yourself to it.

Step 5:
Download the edited tik tok video to your mobile device.

It should be the last message you’ve sent yourself on from your pc on the the group.

I sent myself the video on my laptop and accessed it on whatsapp on my mobile.

You might want to consider this if you want to use the TikTok editor.

If your videos are above 70 MB, the file size will probably not allow you to do this.

Using an emulator like BlueStacks has some minor issues with adding text and gifs also overlays on your video.

Now you can send yourself edited videos from desktop, download them on mobile, and upload them to TikTok.

Method 4) Edit videos on PC and Upload to TikTok using WeTransfer

Edit the videos as usual on your pc.

Step 1:
Export the video on your PC.

Step 2:
Got to WeTransfer

Step 3:
Add your files:

Use Wetransfer on your desktop, laptop, or pc to upload a video.

Click “get a link”

Step 4:
Click “Get the link.”

Step 5:
After the pc upload completes, copy and paste the link in your notes or an email.

Step 6:
Pull up the link on your phone.

Step 7:
Download the video.

Step 8:
Now upload your video to TikTok like usual. ZING!

Voila, you’ve managed to upload a video originally from your laptop to tictok


Method 5) How to use Google Drive to Upload Edited Videos from PC to TikTok

Use Google Drive to Post Edited TikTok Videos

Step 1:
After editing and exporting your video on your laptop or PC.

Step 2:
Go to Google Drive:

Step 3:
Create a folder for your edited videos on google drive

Upload the video from your pc to drive.

Step 4:
Upload your video to the drive

Step 5:
Next, on your mobile device:

Download the Google Drive App IOS


Download the Google Drive App on the Playstore

It’s free up to 10 gigs. Why not?!

Step 6:
Now login to your google account and find the folder where you uploaded your edited TikTok videos.

Mobile version of Google Drive – Download the video from here

Step 7:
Download the videos directly to your mobile device.

Now these videos can be uploaded directly into TikTok.


Once thought to only be for kids, it’s obvious there’s some serious marketing potential. 

Yeah, seriously- TikTok is a real channel, with real influencers, making real content.

But shooting videos and then editing on your mobile leaves something to be desired…

The video editor on the platform is intuitive but not useful if you’re making a ton of content. 

This guide covers numerous ways to make tiktok videos on pc.

After struggling for a bit, I realized there had to be a faster process. I hope this helps.

    Thanks man. Quite a sufficient post. Gave all the info I needed.

    Perhaps one more question? What about copyrighted music. Like Du hast from Rammstein (something too popular). Would I be able to use it without anyone muting the video or getting a penalty or my account locked down?

  3. Ava William

    TikTok requires that users be at least 13 years old to use the app and that anyone under the age of 18 must have approval of a parent or guardian — but there are plenty of young tween users.

    There is no way to get in with the Android emulator or any other device. It says I need to log in with a different device and scan the QR code. On the different device, it says I need to find another device and scan the QR code. Following their instructions on desktop doesn’t work. The instructions are wrong. That means TikTok doesn’t want anyone to use their site.

  12. Tom

    You may need to rewrite steps 28-30. I finally found a way into TikTok. Now, 28-30 are nonsensical. What do they mean? TikTok won’t stay open on Bluestcks for more than five seconds anyway, so even if the instructions made sense, I doubt they would work.

    • Tom

      Yeah. It uploaded and then crashed. 20GB Ram. 8th Gen i5 processor. Bluestacks can’t even handle keeping TikTok open. Useless.

  13. Alvin Joseph

    Very well- written and informative blog on computer. Thanks for sharing this such a great information. And I will visit you again. Thanks a lot.

    Question – If I just transferred the edited video with sound to my phone via a USB cable, I should be able to upload the edited video to TkTok through my phone then, no? It seems all these steps are to get the video file from the PC to the phone, but a USB cable would just be a simple copy/paste into the phone or SD card media/video folder.

    Following that with another question – I am an indie musician making songs under 60 seconds long for Tik Tok. How do I get these songs into the music database for TikTok users to find and use?
