It is possible to increase the recording time on TikTok, thus extending the duration of the videos posted on the social network. The user can publish videos beyond the limit of 15 seconds to 1 minute. See how to increase video recording time on TikTok.
How to increase recording time on TikTok
By default, TikTok only allows you to post videos between 15 and 60 seconds in length for most users. Originally, the timeout was 15 seconds for everyone. Therefore, many people think that it is not possible to create longer posts.
Making it very clear, TikTok has two options for maximum length of videos, which are 15 and 60 seconds. They are valid for recordings as well as for videos saved in the cell phone and published through upload.
To post a video between 15 and 60 seconds, there are three methods:
- Start a 60-second recording (tap “+”, “60s” and start recording), wait to pass the 15-second limit and stop when you wish;
- Upload a video that lasts between 15 and 60 seconds (tap “+”, “Upload”);
- Use the Timer, which allows you to make a recording without using your hands. However, the ability to record up to 60 seconds must be enabled for the profile. Otherwise, the limit will be only 15 seconds.
- Open TikTok and tap the “+” button;
- Adjust the app settings as desired (main or front camera, speed, filters, etc.);
- Touch the “Timer” button (the last one on the right);
- Adjust the length of the video to a custom value, between 15 and 60 seconds (if available);
- Touch “Start countdown”;
- TikTok will count for 3 seconds and start recording,
ending at the time you set.
From here, regardless of the method, edit the video as you wish and publish.
Videos up to 5 minutes on TikTok
TikTok limits the creation of video recordings and uploads to up to 60 seconds, regardless of the method used. However, it is possible to post even larger videos, up to 5 minutes on the platform.
Unfortunately, this is a restricted resource.
In order to post videos that last longer than 60 seconds, you must have more than 1,000 fans on your profile. Anyway, the maximum limit for all users is 5 minutes.
