Method 2: How to upload an edited video to TikTok from your PC
You’ve made some really cool videos.
But the limitations of TikTok’s editor video aren’t worth the hassle. Right? WRONG!
Let’s use an an andiod phone emulator to go from PC to Tik Tok.
How to sign up, upload videos, and post to Tik Tok on Desktop PC
How to Video: Upload Videos to the TikTok app using an Android Emulator
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.
Go to Bluestacks.com and Download Bluestacks for FREE
Install this application to your PC.
I did enough digging to see if anyone else got screwed using the BlueStacks platform. It’s legit.
Open up the install file:
Click “Install Now”
It takes 2-3 minutes. Relax.
Go through the setup on Blue Stacks. It’s easy.
Once the application boots up, you’ll need to register with the play store.
TikTok is the only app I’m emulating an android phone.
Next, you’ll be prompted to create or sign in to the play store account.
I suggest you sign up with an existing email.
Accept and agree to all terms. Keep going.
Now you have access to the play store. This will give you the ability to download apps just like a regular android phone.
Search for “TikTok” in the App Store
Select the TikTok app.
It will start installing TikTok onto your bluestacks account
Once the TikTok Andriod App installs. Hit Open.
Work your way through the sign-up flow.
I’ve selected my interest related to my niche.
Sign up for Tik Tok on PC:
Click the “Me” icon at the bottom
You can do it on your personal mobile device beforehand or on the Android emulator on PC. It’s your call.
Tap the TikTok Sign up button
Select the top option: “Use phone or email”
Tap email and put in the email that will be associated with the account.
Enter your password.
Save it somewhere because you’ll need it to get back in.
Solve the captcha.
Create the name for your TikTok channel.
Save the world. Get the cheerleader. The whole thing.
Importing a video from your laptop to Bluestacks to be uploaded into TikTok
On BlueStacks, we’ll need to set up your upload folder.
Hit the “settings” icon on BlueStacks. It’s shaped like a gear on the bottom right.
Next you’ll see the different options of the left side within the settings of BlueStacks.
Hit “Preferences” then scroll downwards.
You want to select the folder where you will drop your videos to be uploaded onto TikTok
Hit “Change Path” if you want to drop the video files elsewhere.
This is essentially the same as uploading files onto your mobile phone.
That’s why Android emulators rock!
Drag and drop the video you edited and exported from Adobe Premiere into the “Media Folder.”
Note: You can also use any other video editing software than Adobe Premiere
Shortcut: You can get your edited TikTok video onto your emulated Android device quickly:
Find the video on your laptop.
Drag and drop over the BlueStacks application window. It will start to upload TikTok videos right away.
If you did it right, you see this notification on your desktop.
Go back to the TikTok app.
It’s finally time to upload the video from your pc to tik tok!
Upload the video from a pc folder to the spoofed mobile application.
Then import the video into your TikTok account like you were using an andriod phone.
Almost done – Now You Can Upload The Video from PC to TikTok
Hit the center button to create a video.
Then click “allow” all the way through for the three app permissions.
We’re almost there!
Find the video you dragged over to the BlueStacks application and select it.
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?
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.
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]
Next, set up your account by going to WhatsApp app on your phone > settings > then capturing the QR code on the camera.
Save your own phone number as a user.
Create a group and add yourself to it.
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.
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.
Export the video on your PC.
Got to WeTransfer
Add your files:
Use Wetransfer on your desktop, laptop, or pc to upload a video.
Click “Get the link.”
After the pc upload completes, copy and paste the link in your notes or an email.
Pull up the link on your phone.
Download the video.
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
After editing and exporting your video on your laptop or PC.
Go to Google Drive:
Create a folder for your edited TikTok.com videos on google drive
Upload your video to the drive
Next, on your mobile device:
Now login to your google account and find the folder where you uploaded your edited TikTok videos.
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.
