There were multiple occasions that I needed to download a video clip hosted on Tumblr and got lazy digging through the page-source for the file location.
So, to solve this trouble once-and-for-all, I whipped up a simple bash script that takes a single URL argument and it’ll download the video clip into the current directory.
It’s really simple and dirty and I hope you might find it useful.
It requires a recent version of curl.
Update: By popular demand, here’s a web-based version.
