Tumblr videos hadn’t been working for me in Chrome on my 64-bit Windows 7 machine since the recent update. I doubt I’m the only one who had this problem, so here’s the fix I found:

  • Enter “Chrome:flags” in the address bar.
  • Find an entry that says “Disable hardware-accelerated video decode.”
  • Click “Enable.”

Your videos should now play just fine.
