At the end of last year, Tumblr made one of its biggest changes, making it clear that a adult content can no longer be published as of December 17 on the platform.
Although this decision aroused a lot of criticism in the community, Tumblr is still a service used by millions of people, in which we can find interesting posts.
One of the features offered by this service is that users can upload videos directly to the platform, so if you are looking for a way to download them (to have a backup or to be able to see them offline) then we will explain some methods to get it.
First of all, we must make it clear that we can only use these methods to download the videos that have been uploaded directly to the platform (so it is quite likely that they will not work with clips that have been shared via Instagram or YouTube).
HOW TO DOWNLOAD VIDEOS from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or TikTok on your MOBILE
The first thing we must locate is the URL of the post of the video. For this we will have to hit the share button and click on the permanent link icon.
Once we have done it, the video will open in a separate tab. Now we will have to right click on the page and select the “Inspect” option. If we press ‘CTRL + F’ on the keyboard, a search box will open.
In this search engine we will place “video” or “mp4” and we will press Enter. This will highlight the address of the video (which begins with “https: //”). We copy that address, we paste it in a new window and by right clicking on the video, the option to “Save video as” will appear.
Pasting the link on a web
As we already have the address of the post, if we want to save ourselves having to be “inspecting” in Chrome, one of the best options is to use a third-party service.
TubeOffline is one of the best options. It will be as easy as pasting the URL of the publication from Tumblr, select the quality, choose if we want it to convert to another format and click on the “GET video” button.
Again, it will open a tab in the browser with the video already playing. We just have to right click on it and select “Save video as”.
If you prefer (or if you are browsing Tumblr from your mobile and need to download a video) you can choose an app to get it. If you are an Android user one of the best known options is Tumbloader.
It is an application totally free, and it is really easy to use. If we are using the Tumblr application and we find a video, we will simply have to click on the share button and send it to Tumbloader.
If, instead, you are an iOS userOne of the most popular applications for downloading Tumblr videos is Tyblr. It’s also free, and this time it’s an alternative Tumblr client.
That means we can log into our account and when we see a video that we want to download, we will simply have to click on the button in the lower right corner that says “Save”.
