viddit.red is designed to be the one-stop tool to download videos from reddit. We can also convert reddit videos to mp3, or help download audio from reddit in general. To begin, we need a Reddit Video Post Link.. It can be a short (v.)redd.it link, or a long permalink to some comment in subreddit that contains the video. From that we will try to extract the direct file link for you to easily download reddit video. Our system snoops out multiple types of video files and animated gifs that users post, including native Reddit hosted videos, imgur, gfycat, and others. Most animated gifs have (usually smaller in size) mp4 video equivalents, - we can help with those too. So what are we waiting for? If you have the Reddit Video you'd like to download to your device, the process is very simple...
We are a bit oldschool, so we like to read and participate in Reddit using the old proven method: computer + internet browser. Simply open Chrome, Firefor or Safari, whatever your favorite browser is, navigate to Reddit.com and find the video post, click on it. Now there are 2 ways of getting the Post Link. One - you can Right Click (mobile - tap & hold) on browser address bar, then select COPY in the menu that shows up. Two - find the share button below the post, click on it, then click Copy Link. Both ways achive same exact result - Reddit Post Link is copied to your device Clipboard. Here's info-screenshot on that..
Now this covers steps 1 & 2, so what's left is to Paste the link into the box on top of this page. This can be done similarly by Right Click in the box (or Tap & Hold until Menu pops up), then select Paste to insert the link from Clipboard to the input box. And SUBMIT! =) easy? we think so! And what about mobile? The Reddit App, that they are pushing upon the users? Well, it's even easier there. All we need is to find the share button below the post, no matter solo or in the feed, and tap it. Standard Share Menu appears, where we simply tap Copy to Clipboard. And the known part - open viddit.red in a browser, tap in the white box and hold your finger until context menu shows up. In the menu select Paste and the link is in the box! Then submit and download.. Check out this illustrational screenshot if things aren't yet crystal clear.
We are serious fans of reddit. It is one of the most important remnants of the days long gone.. Yes, reddit is one of top 20 most visited sites in the world. Used to be top 10.. Oh well, doesn't matter, the site is still great. It is one of the very few news-aggregation and content-rating sites that operated mostly by users that still survive. Facebook killed many great forums and communities, but it didn't affect reddit, maybe even helped its growth, when many a discussionist would leave their favorite forums now deserted to gather up together some place where user generated content was still the king - on reddit, for example.
Recently redesigned to look fresh & hip, reddit has also introduced their own video hosting services along with many other new features. Now anyone can simply upload or even drag-n-drop a video into their post (or comment), and reddit will store video on their own servers for free. Kinda like youtube, but just for reddit.. Only videos exist through user posts and comments, and if post is deleted - video is deleted as well. Along with that, reddit allows users share and embed videos and animated gifs from many third party sites..
All that said, and being huge reddit nerds, we also like to extract videos from reddit posts, convert animated video gifs to normal videos, save room and decrease storage, pack video better, and many other things. And all of them require having video file at hand.. So here we are, making life easier with a tool to download reddit post videos fast and easy. Our service, our product, our baby is different from others that claim to do the same. We actually go into the code, we like to play with it, and video is our passion, thus we can extract video better. Where others fail, we can help 3 times out of 4.
We are all up for personal contact. But, we don't really like to repeat ourselves over and over. So... Before going through with the actual contact, please, see if your question is already answered below.. And if not, go ahead, fire away, we're waiting. Thanks! If your question involves a link - please, don't forget to include it in the email! here are some of the most persisting questions:
That is a recent tendency for Windows based systems. Some browsers like Firefox and Chrome do not like to save audio and video streams as files, and so they tend to stream and actually show videos rather than download them. This is also proper browser behavior, if you want some tech stuff, because audio and video streams aren't served for downloading, but rather for reading and displaying, and headers for file download are not sent by server, thus browser doesn't offer to save such files, aka streams.. In any case, any video that opens to stream like that has a menu in bottom right corner where you can force the download. Also if you're on a Mac or an IOS device, - downloading video and audio is insistingly disabled just to make all media data go through itunes somehow.. You'd need a special program or a liberated browser to actually download video or audio from web on a Max or Iphone.
There are many reasons this could happen. One most popular reason being that there is actually no video on the page you submitted. In many cases users submit link for the whole subreddit. In very rare case there's more than 1 video per post, - we might fail there too. If you strongly believe there's a video in the link you gave us - email us that link, and we'll do all in our power to help you download that reddit video. Some animated gifs cannot be saved as video. Also video maybe sourced somewhere we have never heard of before. We do work hard to make sure all videos on reddit are downloadable, but still.. Oh, yeah, there's also reason being that video is on youtube or other popular source, and it's just embedded from there, we cannot download youtube video
Pardon, but this is not our doing. Reddit engineers thought it'd be smart to separate video into actual video track and audio track, and store them separately. Youtube does that, many other sites do.. Well... We can't really say anything right now.. Our server is too small to merge soundless video and its audio for all visitors.. So here's a good resource that shows multiple websites that can help you combine video and audio online without any extra software downloads. Eventually, if there's a strong demand, we will introduce our own merger service, but for now we don't want to look for funds to do that, cause it'll cost us $$$... Yes it will...
While we don't promise that there'll be no ads ever on this site, we do guarantee one thing: there will never be malware or popups here, nothing that could endanger your visit or cut your stay short. One reason could be that server costs might become hard to sustain from our personal pockets. Maybe google ads, eventually.. Nothing intrusive. We promise that. And it won't happen any time soon..
