Why Won’t TikTok Let Me Trim My Video?
You can’t trim your video on TikTok because you can’t see the default button, or you’ve already posted the video.
There are multiple causes why TikTok won’t let you trim the video, which are:
1.The “Adjust Clips” icon disappeared from the edit page (The Adjust button lets you trim the uploaded and recorded videos on TikTok).
2.You’re not finding the “Default” button that let you trim videos without (The default button shows up on the Adjust page only when uploading a video on TikTok).
3.You Posted the Video already on TikTok, so you can’t edit the video.
4.The video is on the drafts.
5.There is an issue with the app update.
All the causes, above, could possibly be the issue that’s avoiding you from trimming the video.
However, there is a solution for all these issues.
If you can’t find the Adjust Clips on TikTok, it’s because your app is not up-to-date.
It’s also possible that you have an issue with the cache of the TikTok app.
Sometimes also, TikTok may suddenly stop some features for a while for no reason.
Then you will see that the feature got back after some time.
The best thing to do is to first check if there is an update that’s occurred on the Play Store or the App Store.
If there is no update, try to uninstall then reinstall the app and check it out.
By doing so, you’ll have cleared the cache of the app.
The last thing to try is to log in to your TikTok account using another phone.
However, if the Adjust Clips button is still missing, you need to use the CapCut app.
You can download it for your Android or iPhone.
This app will help you to adjust the length limit of your TikTok video when the app won’t let you trim it.
After downloading the app, you’ll be able to trim the video with and without sound by working precisely on what you like, such as trimming the sound only or the video.
