Tips to Upload TikTok Videos to YouTube

So the first thing that you need to keep in mind is that uploading TikTok videos to YouTube comes with a few challenges. TikTok and YouTube have different copyright policies. What might be considered a copy-right free track on TikTok might get you a DMC strike on YouTube. Therefore it’s important to do some manual edits on your TikTok videos before you upload them to TikTok.

Here are some edits that you will want to do on your TikTok videos before you upload them on YouTube:

1. Audio edits

As mentioned above, if your TikTok video contains any music that can get you a copyright strike, you need to modify that.

2. Overlays

Adding overlays on top of your TikTok videos will cover the black bars on the side and will help you avoid copyright strikes due to previously uploaded content.

3. Add voiceovers

This might not be necessary when uploading a single video but adding voiceover at the beginning of compilation videos will help you make the content fresh.
