Now testing: Direct video uploads
Over the next few hours, we’ll be rolling out crazy simple native video uploading to all accounts. This is designed to be an easy alternative to full-blown video sites when all you want to do is post a quick video to your blog.
Just a few notes:
- You can upload up to 5 minutes of video every day. You can break this up across as many videos as you damn well please.
- Tumblr will immediately post most H.264-MP4-AAC videos without transcoding! That means no waiting and no quality loss. Photo Booth videos and iMovie’s “Export to iPod/iPhone” work great.
- If you’re looking to post longer videos, customize your player, or host HD videos, you’ll be much better off with a feature-rich video tool such as Vimeo.
