    You can embed videos from several popular platforms, but tiktok isn’t one of them, https://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/

    Hi there,

    Currently the only embed option TikTok offers uses JavaScript, and that type of code is not allowed on WordPress.com for security reasons.

    For us to be able to add support for embedding TikTok videos, they’ll need to implement the oEmbed protocol instead, that allows you to share a video by simply pasting in the link, same as embedding tweets, Youtube videos or Instagram posts work.

    So please contact support at TikTok and ask them to implement oEmbed, and once they do that they can reach out to us directly to request that we add support for their service. You can point them to this for more information:
