TikTok has taken over as the place for short-form video content that packs virality. The platform has a number of different features that allow its users to create content easily within the app, and Stitching is just one of these. Today, we’ll show you how to stitch a video on TikTok, as well as go through the most popular and trending ways you can stitch, in order to increase your views and potentially go viral.
How to Stitch on TikTok (plus some creative content tips!)
What is stitching on TikTok? 🧵
Stitching on TikTok is when you feature another user’s video before your own in the same piece of content. They can be used as a way to ‘react’ to other people’s videos or recreate something from a viral video or show something cool they have discovered on the platform.
Can you stitch any video? 🤔
In order to stitch a video, the user must allow for this feature in their privacy settings. Likewise, if you want to allow other users to stitch your videos, you can enable this in the privacy settings of your video.

First, find the video you’d like to stitch. Next, click the ‘share button’ and select ‘Stitch’. Select the timestamp/amount of the video you want to share at the start of your own piece of content. Then, record your piece, or upload your content. This will automatically stitch the two together, and you can post as normal.
Popular ways to stitch a video on TikTok and what drives the most engagement
One of the most popular types of video on TikTok (that also has the most viral factor) is comedic reactions to videos that appear on TikTok. If you see something you can think of a funny reaction to, save the video and remember to stitch it later. Here’s an example:
@thelukecook #stitch with @seth.shyrock sorry bro ong fr fr prolly not gonna make it #tiktokboys #fr #nocap #bussin #lowkeymid ♬ original sound – Luke Cook
Sometimes, people ask open questions on TikTok, and often the responses go viral. Hop onto this trend for an easy, low-effort content idea.

Product trial videos
There’s been plenty of products that have gone viral and sold out thanks to their success on TikTok, so this is another way to garner views, using the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt trend. Just feature a viral video before yours, and react to yourself trying out the product yourself.

Show your personality
Where Instagram is mostly visual, TikTok almost requires you to show your personality in order to see engagements and views. Think about how you can creatively react or respond to videos in a way that conveys who you are.
