Q: Why can't I upload video to Tumblr? It says "Your video has been uploaded", but I cannot click on the Post button because it's grayed out and unclickable.
I believe that many of you have met the similar Tumblr video upload error when uploading videos to Tumblr. Actually, there are many limits on Tumblr videos uploading and this article will explain them to you specifically and the related limitless Tumblr upload method is introduced as well.
The video size that you can post to Tumblr can't go beyond 100MB per day. Which means you can upload single clips or multiple videos on Tumblr yet the total video size cannot exceed 100MB. If your video size breaks this limit, try to reduce video file size or change video bitrate to lower degree to help you get smaller MP4 videos.
The max length of accepted video for sharing on Tumblr is 5 minutes a day. You can upload a 5-minute video or several videos that sum up to 5 minutes a day.
Before you post video to Tumblr, make sure the video duration is fit for this requirement. When the video exceeds the limit, you can cut off the unnecessary parts, like trim MP4 videos via some video editors.
According to the Official Help Center, Tumblr accepts MOV and MP4 video format and it will immediately post most H.264-MP4-AAC videos without transcoding. If your videos do not conform to Tumblr video uploading requirements, you can use some free video converters to deal with video format conversion.
