To help you with this, we’ll reveal the answer to this query. We’ll also discuss how to save your edited projects and find them in its dedicated app for different devices.

Where does CapCut save videos?


If you are using CapCut on an Android device, it downloads your exported videos to the “CapCut” folder, which is automatically created when you install the app.

To access the video, open “Files/File Manager,” tap “Internal Storage,” and open the “DCIM” folder. Now, tap “CapCut” and search for the clip you want. 

INFO: Mostly, the video will automatically appear in the Gallery app. 


On iOS devices, the app saves your videos in the Files app. However, once you export the video, you can easily find it in the “Photos” app. 

Windows or Mac PC

If you are using CapCut on Windows or Mac, the app downloads the exported videos in the location you specified during the export process. 

By default, the drafted videos are saved in the following location on your Windows:

C:\Users\[your name]\AppData\Local\CapCut\User Data\Projects\com.lveditor.draft

While on Mac, the videos are stored on /User/[Your Name]/Movies/CapCut/User Data/Projects/com.lveditor.draft.

Capcut Not Saving Videos?

This is usually down to internet connectivity issues, or problems with the strength of your Wi-Fi.

To fix this, it is recommended to install a Wi-Fi booster. These will enhance your internet connection speed and help you work around the issue.

The one we recommend is the Wifi Extender Signal Booster by Netfun. This one is pretty economical but highly efficient and will work with any Wi-Fi you currently have.

Set this up in your house, and you will be good to go.
