You can upload videos to your Tumblr blog; however, Tumblr limits you to videos that are less than 5 minutes long and 100MB in size. To get around these restrictions, you can embed videos from another site, including Flash videos. Tumblr allows this because the embedded video streams from the host site, not Tumblr. Thus, it does not use any of Tumblr's bandwidth.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go the Web page that has the Flash video you want to embed. Copy the embed code. Finding the code is different for different sites. On most, you can right-click the Flash video and select "Get Embed Code."

  2. 2

    Sign in to your Tumblr dashboard.

  3. 3

    Click the "Video" icon.

  4. 4

    Click the "Embed a Video" tab. Paste the embed code in the blank field immediately below the tab.

  5. 5

    Click "Create Post." The embedded video will display in your Tumblr blog.
