Here’s how to download TikTok videos to your PC, in 2 clicks, literally!
You don’t have to signup or register! All you need is an username and you’re all set! The tool I’m using is 100% free as well so no one’s reaching for your pockets!
In fact, you’ll also learn how to download private TikTok videos and how to backup your (and other) TikTok accounts on automation!
This is a complete tutorial, with step-by-step screenshots. So yes, no previous experience or special skills will be required.
How to download TikTok videos on PC?
The process to download TikTok videos on PC literally takes just 2 clicks!
Obviously, first you’ll need to get the tools which makes it possible.
There are dozens of applications out there which let you do this. However, the one I use, like and will be using in this tutorial is the Qoob Clips.
It’s 100% free so you don’t have to shell out a single penny.
Let’s get to it then?
Step 1: Download and install Qoob Clips.
Step 2: Enter the TikTok username you wish to download videos from. (Make sure you enter the username in @username format).
Done! You can see that Qoob Clips downloads whatever content exists on the TikTok account and shows it to you.
That’s literally all it takes! Could it be any simpler? I don’t think so.
The same process can also be used to download TikTok photos and profile pictures.
Also, you can subscribe to any number of accounts simultaneously. Meaning, videos from all those accounts is downloaded at the same time. You do not have to “queue” things up or wait for one account to finish before you can start next.
How to Download Private TikTok videos on PC?
What if I told you Qoob Clips can download private TikTok videos as well?
No extra steps/ login required. You simply enter the TikTok username of the person you wish to download from.
The TikTok account in the above example is a private account. And yet Qoob Clips downloads content off it easily without me having to do anything else.
How to Download TikTok videos on PC using Hashtags?
I just taught you how to download TikTok videos to gallery without posting. But, can you also download TikTok videos using hashtags? Totally!
The process is almost identical with one minor difference.
Step 1: Launch Qoob Clips.
Step 2: Enter the hashtag you wish to download videos from. Do note that you must enter the hashtag in the #Hashtag format.
Done! Literally! All the TikTok content that’s ever posted under the hashtag gets downloaded instantly.
Pretty easy, isn’t it?
What Metadata gets downloaded?
Often when downloading content using third-party tools, the metadata gets lost.
By metadata, I mean the captions, the date/time, hashtags used by the uploader and so on.
It may seem irrelevant when you’re downloading just a few photos/videos. However, when the number increases, the metadata helps with easy recognition.
Qoob Clips takes care of that! Everything that you download using the tool has its metadata intact.
Do note that the metadata is only visible on Qoob Clips. Meaning, if you open the files on your system, they’ll only contain the “profile username” from where they were downloaded.
However, when you hover over the photos on Qoob Clips, you can see all the metadata mentioned above.
How to enable auto-downloading of TikTok videos on PC?
In this section, I’ll also answer how to download own video from TikTok. Basically, you can use Qoob Clips as a “TikTok backup tool” as well. Everything you post, or any other TikTok user posts can be set to be “auto-downloaded”.
As a result, you’ll always have an offline copy of everything that’s posted on the accounts. If you lose access to the account, you’ll still have all the uploaded content.
To do that, click on the little human-like icon next to the download button on Qoob Clips.
Then click “Preferences”
Then, simply select the “update period” from the popup menu.
If you set it to 1 day, the username/hashtag will be scanned after every 24 hours and the content will be downloaded to your PC.
You can also update content from any account/hashtag at any other time manually. Even when the 24-hour period isn’t over yet. Simply click on the little “refresh” button found far-right of each account username/hashtag.
While the tool is extremely simple to use and understand, how heavy is it on your pockets?
It’s free! The free account will get you 2 profile/hashtag subscriptions, and 200 downloads/day, forever!
The paid accounts are as follows:
- Personal: $7.00/month- 10 profiles/ Unlimited downloads
- Professional: $25.00/month- Unlimited everything.
Qoob Clips support
Is there any help if you get stuck? Obviously.
The company provides live-support on their website. The live-chat isn’t available 24X7 though. You may have to wait an average of 2-10 minutes for a response. But, it’s totally functional, and once you’re connected ,the replies are more than helpful.
Is downloading TikTok videos on PC illegal?
No, it’s not illegal to download TikTok videos on PC.
Sure, it may be against TikTok’s T&C. However, it’s not illegal. As in, it won’t land you in jail.
Do note that downloading is only allowed as long as it’s purely for “personal” uses. No public/group or commercial usage is legal without explicit permissions from the uploader.
Closing words- how to download TikTok draft video in gallery?
I’m confident by now you’ve learnt how to download TikTok videos, both private and public, haven’t you?
There are many other tools out there you can use. However, Qoob Clips offer this permanently free plan which lets you start using it right away, no credit card required!
Why take my words for it, right? Go check it out for yourself!
However, in my personal opinion, it does more than any other free tool out there lets me do. So yes, I’ll say it’s one of the best, fastest, and easiest ways to download TikTok videos to your computer.
