Scrape TikTok Videos

If you’re looking for a TikTok video scraper, you’ve undoubtedly come across many TikTok scrapers that perform web scraping data from TikTok either by hijacking your computer & IP address or running in the cloud. As with most social media scraping, you’ll find these scrapers only work some of the time and more often than not get blocked and/or return incorrect data.

Instead of trying to jump through these hoops, the links on this page all point to various integrations we’ve set up with TikAPI, an unofficial API for TikTok that “outsources” all of these scraping tasks and maintains a database of TikTok user profiles, video posts, and video URLs so you can download video that was publicly posted on TikTok.

Our Service

While you’re welcome to use TikAPI directly, it will require a bit of technical setup and work to get started, and you won’t receive usable data (like CSV files) out of the box. This is where we come in, as we query TikAPI on your behalf and then parse the responses into usable output files, such as JSON and CSV files you can quickly open in Excel or upload to your data analytics tool of choice.

Getting Started

Check out the links above, and based on your use case they will walk you through each scraping use case. For example, if you want to get a specific user’s TikTok videos, the instructions will guide you in obtaining that user ID so you can then scrape all the videos. Or if you have a specific video ID in mind, you can select the Video Details option to scrape download URLs for a specific video or bulk scrape a large list of video IDs using our workflows service.

HAR File Scraping

If you don’t want to use TikAPI, you can see our HAR File Web Scraping instructions on our TikTok Scraper page. The HAR file approach is manual (meaning you must manually browse through the TikTok data), however it can be much more reliable and you never need to worry about getting blocked.

This can also be a good solution if you need to scrape TikTok videos for a private user and don’t want to risk your real account getting banned if used with a bot.
