How to post videos from Tumblr

Post  fantastica on 7/19/2012, 12:40 pm

Thanks to our delightful @Delight, here's an easy tutorial for posting videos from Tumblr:

You will need Firefox and Adblock add-on for this to work.


When you see a video on tumblr you want, click to play the video. While the video is running in the first few seconds, right-click on the 'Block' tab in the top-right hand corner of the video.



A window pops up as shown above. Then click on 'View Selection Source' and there you have it-- the embedding code of the video. Then copy this code in full and paste it in a post on this forum.

^ Just to clarify in a bit more detail, the add on required is 'Adblock Plus', which is free for download from the internet. And you'll need Firefox (I've had no luck with Google Chrome).

If you're still not getting the 'Block' Tab, try waving the cursor over the video, or over the general vicinity of the top right hand corner of the video.

Remember that you have to play the video before you can get the 'View Selection Source' to show in the window.

Hope it helps!

yes I have adblock plus. It didn't work for me because I turned off the option "show tab on flash and java". Now that i have turned that option on I can see the "block" tab/button and it works now. Thanks for the help!!
