    Hey guys, first time here so I hope I've got this in the right place.

    Basically I've noticed when uploading adult video content to Tumblr it gets removed very quickly by Tumblr and an email is sent to me saying they do not host adult video content. I'm a bit confused by this though as so many Tumblr blogs post adult videos. Does anyone know what's up with this and how to get it to work?

    I have my own private hosting, so perhaps I can host the videos myself and link direct to the files?


    PS, trying to avoid using iframes.

    Yes if you host it. it's allowed ( embended ). But be carefull it will suck hard your bandwith and if you on a shared host your account will surely be suspended.

    Source : Tumblr FAQ ( That you should read first before posting here IMO )

    Thanks for the reply, although I forgot to mention that I've managed to successfully upload 2 videos to Tumblr without them flagging and removing them, both times they were videos from another blog that I saved and re-uploaded though.

    This is what confuses me so much. Is there some way around these restrictions? These other blogs seem to have a way because I can save and upload their video? Seems very odd to me.

    Probably should have mentioned that in the first post sorry, I have read the Tumblr FAQ :)
