If you don’t want to miss the live performances of your favorite influencers. This is why, today, I would like to present this script to you: TikTok Live Recorder. Thanks to it, you can now record lives automatically to view them later!
Also, imagine that you are a content creator and want to capture your own lives to create ‘Best Of’ type montages or post them on other platforms to increase monetization. Or if you are a good FDP, take extracts out of context from other streamers to artificially highlight them out of context?
With TikTok Live Recorder, you can easily capture and save live videos and audios for replay and analysis later. Basically, it’s the ultimate tool for all TikTok lovers!
This wonderful tool is compatible with Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android. Before you get started, make sure to head over to the TikTok Live Recorder GitHub repository to download and install the software on your device.
git clone https://github.com/Michele0303/tiktok-live-recorder
Once you have installed TikTok Live Recorder, open a command prompt or terminal and start by navigating to the folder where the software is installed.
Then, we will install the dependencies like this:
pip install -r requirements.txt
To start recording a live session, simply enter the following command:
python3 main.py -url URLDULIVE -mode manual -output ~/Downloads -ffmpeg
As a parameter, you can use either -url and indicate the URL of the live, or -user and put the nickname of your favorite TikToker, or -room_id to indicate the ID of the live. You can also start recording in manual mode on a live stream that has already started or in automatic mode to start recording automatically when a streamer goes live. That way, you let it run, go to work, and you will have the video file of the stream at the end of the day.
The software will then start searching for the current live and will start recording as soon as it finds something. The recorded videos and audios will be saved in the default folder, which is usually the software installation folder. You can also use ffmpeg as a parameter to force a conversion directly to MP4 format (otherwise, it can be done at the end).
And there you go! It’s as simple as that. You can now record your live streaming sessions on TikTok and save them to view later, edit, or share with your friends.
Have fun, and I promise, will you follow me on TikTok? Yeah, even if you are old and resistant to new things ^^!”
