Twitter Vine now available @ App store and Sharing Vine Videos on Tumblr

Posted: January 27, 2013 in All Categories

Twitter's introduction of short video clips promises changes on the site, some better than others.

With Instagram taking the world by storm, and subsequently selling to Facebook for $1 billion, the question on everyone’s minds has been who will be able to do the same thing with video? Twitter’s been thinking this through for a while, proven by the acquisition of video-sharing app Vine in October.

The app isn’t built directly into Twitter, but rather acts as a standalone app. It integrates with Twitter in the same way that Instagram does, except that Vine never turned off permissions randomly, meaning that Vine videos can be embedded directly in tweets, showing up in followers’ streams.

Vine videos can also show up in a separate Vine web page, like this one.

Twitter launched Vine but omitted one important social network from its sharing options: Tumblr. Looped GIF images are extremely popular on Tumblr, so the audience there for Vine videos is potentially huge. Just because there’s no native way to share Vines on Tumblr, doesn’t mean you can’t share your creations on the site. Here are few different ways you can include Vine videos in your Tumblr posts:

Upload Directly To Tumblr

If you want to share your Vine on Tumblr, one of the easiest ways is to just upload it directly to your Tumblr from your iOS device using Tumblr’s app.

Every Vine you create is automatically saved to the camera roll on your device. To upload to Tumblr:

  • Launch the Tumblr app on your phone
  • Create a new post
  • Select video from the options
  • Choose existing video
  • Select the Vine you’d like to upload from the video clips stored on your phone

Vine videos shared this way will just play through once rather than loop. To get that looped effect, you can import the video clip into your favorite mobile video editor (Splice is a good example, but there are many others) and copy it several times, laying the copies down on the timeline, one after another. Once you’ve reached your desired length, export the video and upload it just as you would a traditional video through Tumblr.
