TikTok is the world’s leading destination for creating and sharing short vertical mobile videos. In 2018, TikTok was one of the most downloaded application all over the world. It presents the world’s creativity, knowledge and moments that matter in the daily life of the people. A TikTok application which was earlier known as Musical.ly continues to attract many people from all generations in the storm. Tiktok is gaining its foothold in the US against the other applications like Snapchat and Instagram.
A 15-second video is a funny way to enjoy and share with all your friends. You can spend hours watching videos of the people living all over the world and enjoy.
Save Video Option
Each and every video gives a default save video option so that the viewers can download it anytime. Simply tap the share button and then choose the save button and that video will automatically be downloaded to your iPhone. If you want to see TikTok videos in a separate folder, you can download iPhone’s Photo app in which you can only see those videos which are downloaded by you from TikTok application.
What to do when there is no “save video” option?
You may come across such videos which have privacy and do not allow the users to save the video. A trick is there which allows you to download such videos with privacy tag. You just need an Instagram account which is already logged in on your iPhone.
Now, tap the share button and select the “Instagram stories” which will take you directly to the Instagram story screen. You can save the video from there and stop the process of uploading. You can then see the video in your albums part.
Save Video as a GIF
If in case you don’t want to hear the sound of a particular video, you also can download that video as GIF where you will not listen to the background music but only the video. To do so, you just need to select the share button on the video and simply tap “save as a GIF”. Tiktok will automatically convert that video into a GIF which you can see in your gallery.
You can also share a GIF video to WhatsApp, Instagram, and other social websites.
Save Video as LIVE Photo
The LIVE photo feature is also there for those people who want to save a particular part of the video which they can also set as wallpaper. It just captures a few seconds of the video and saves it directly to your album which you can also share to friends via different modes of social media.
Use Total Application
If you are not able to download the videos from the above-mentioned methods, you can download a third-party application to download videos which have privacies.
Step 1: Open TikTok application and play the video you want to save.
Step 2: Simply select the share button and click on copy link.
Step 3: Now open the Total application and tap globe icon which is located on the right side of the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: Paste that link on the search box and hit the go button.
Step 5: Simply start playing the video.
Step 6: The application will play the selected video and you will find the download option there.
Step 7: Choose a location where you want to save the video and click on the “done” button.
You can share the video from this app after saving the video from there.
Most Flexible Way?
The most flexible way of downloading the video from TikTok is the “save” option and what if there is no “save” option, then you need to go with the second method that I have explained above by using the Instagram trick. It is also a great trick to save video which has privacy and doesn’t give you the option to save it.
