How to Put Embedded Audio on Tumblr


Tumblr is one of the few blogging platforms that allows users to upload different types of content, which is why you can choose between posting text, photos, videos, links, quotes, IM chats and audio. Tumblr's audio post feature lets you upload audio to your blog, or embed audio that is already hosted elsewhere online. Posting embedded audio to your Tumblr is simple and requires no HTML code knowledge.

  • Open to the Web page with the embedded audio that you want to post to Tumblr. Select and copy the direct URL.

  • Open and log in to your account in another browser tab or window.

  • Click the "Audio" icon at the top of your Dashboard.

  • Click the "External Source" tab on the "Audio Post" page.

  • Paste the URL into the "http://" field. Keep in mind that Tumblr will be streaming your audio, not hosting it.

  • Type any text that you want to include in your post into the "Description" field. If you leave this blank, your post will only consist of Tumblr's audio player.

  • Type any tags associated with your post into the field on the right. This is particularly important if you want your post to have a chance at being featured on Tumblr's Explore page. You can use literal tags like "music" and "audio," the name of the song or artist, the musical genre or a feeling evoked by the song, such as "fun" or "summer."

  • Click the "Create Post" button to post your embedded audio to your Tumblr blog.
