I’m browsing Tumblr from a few years and it’s really an addictive place to know and follow what other people are doing. There are tons of videos and images uploaded every single day. Users who love to share their creativity and arts should definitely post it on this platform. Millions of monthly active users are out there to watch your content.
But, the worst thing about this social media platform is that we can’t simply download the videos available. We need to follow some steps or have to use third party software/apps to download Tumblr videos. It’s just annoying, isn’t it!
We can save the images directly, or just take a screenshot and it’s done. But, in order to download the videos, there are few compulsory steps to follow. There isn’t any simple or quick way to download Tumblr videos. Some 3rd party extensions or apps also stops working.

How To Download Tumblr Videos With Chrome (For Geeks)
This method is going to be a little geeky. If you’re playing with Google Chrome for a long time then it’ll be an easy process for you. But, for those users who just surf the internet for a while using chrome can also follow this step because I’ve written it in step by step process.
As we know that videos should be served from a location e.g from a web server address. We can easily capture that address using the Chrome web browser. Chrome allows users to use Network feature, using which users have the ability to view the source and type of content loading on a web page.
Just follow the step given down below and you’ll understand what I mean. According to my personal opinion, it’s the best method you should use.
- Visit Tumblr and search for the video you’re looking for.
- Then open the video page (don’t play the video)
- Right-Click inside the player and select Inspect option. (Make sure entire web page is loaded)
- Now, you’ll see Network tab, click on it.
- Then play the video on the web page, e.g click on Play so that video can start.
- You’ll see new resources are being loaded in the Network tab.
- Look for media in the type row with status code 206.
- Right click on the name in the same column and select Open In New Tab.
- The same video will be played on the new tab.
- Right-Click and select Save As.
- Browse the location where you want to save Tumblr video.
Enjoy! Well, this method might be very time to consume for some of the users. Those, who want to save every single video they saw on Tumblr will not find this way quick and efficient. But, those who are only saving a few videos should definitely follow this up.
Now, we probably need a quick and easy way for power users right! So, an online Tumblr video downloader might help you in this case.
