We know that Tumblr is widely used to upload and post music, make song playlists and insert Tumblr music widgets all around your theme. But sometimes you just can’t find the song anywhere but in one of the most visited sites in the world, YouTube. It may seem an irony, but most of us just want the YouTube video to play music, so why not turning YouTube in a audio player for Tumblr?. Only a tweak of the embed code is needed in order to get rid of the annoying video screen that noone needs.

How To Make a YouTube Audio Player For Tumblr.
- Grab the code from the YouTube video clip you want to use to play music. It looks like this:
- You can see there are two strings of code that show both the width and height of the video player; width=”480″ height=”385 . We are only interested in the last one.
- We must modify this line to make the YouTube Audio Player for Tumblr. The value height will always be “25″ and the value width will be relative to your tumblr post layout. In my case I chose “400″ but it could be as smaller though.
- Now, paste and replace the the second line width=”480″ height=”385″ for width=”400″ height=”25″
- Once in your publish screen, choose whatever type of post you feel like and paste the full youtube code in the html screen. You can make this screen pop up by clicking on the html button that is located on your post toolbar.
- You can not only paste this code into any type of posts, but also in your sidebar, header, or footer in your Tumblelog.
<object width=”480″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/4AjScYSuGJ4&hl=en_US&fs=1&”></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/4AjScYSuGJ4&hl=en_US&fs=1&” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”480″ height=”385″></embed></object>
