How to upload a video to TikTok

Before going straight to the point, let's answer the question "How long can a TikTok be?".

The length limit depends on how you create a video. If you record it right in the app, you can use length presets from 15 seconds to 3 minutes. But if you want to upload a previously recorded visual, the limit augments to 10 minutes. Actually, it may become even longer, up to 15 minutes, as the corresponding experiments are already going on.

TikTok 10-minute videos used to be integrated into the app as well, but this feature didn't prove to be popular, so now you can only upload them. And that's when you'll need video editing software to embellish and polish your recording before posting.

But we have a better option for you: an ultimate all-in-one video editor.

First, it works online in a browser. You can use it from any device, be it a MacBook, an Android smartphone, a Windows laptop, or any other gadget with a stable Internet connection.

Then, it can serve as a video trimmer, aspect ratio changer, meme maker, audio editor, subtitle editor, color filters, etc.

Finally, despite all its complexity and multi-functionality, the tool is user-friendly and intuitively comprehensive. But just in case you need any help, here is a brief manual on how to make a 10-minute TikTok.

  1. Collect visuals

    Open the Clideo's video editor in any browser and hit the "Get started" button.
