Reddit is a growing social network that has been in the news lately for controversial reasons. It’s kind of a mix between a social network and an online forum with moderators and a karma system. Lately, the company has been focusing on first-party content rather than simply allowing sharing links to other platforms. That means users can directly upload photos and videos on Reddit. While downloading photos off the platform is easy, there is no option to download videos from Reddit. Well, here’s how to download Reddit videos and audio files on Android and other platforms.
While this post will focus on Android, and how exactly to download Reddit videos on it, there are easy ways to download Reddit videos on any platform. Unfortunately, unlike YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, there aren’t as many options. That’s especially true if you want to download a Reddit video with audio. However, Viddit, is such an online service that does allow you to download Reddit videos with audio. Fortunately, they also have an Android app to make your life easier. If you are a Reddit addict, you should also check out these best Reddit apps for Android.
1. Download Viddit Android App
The Viddit app has actually been created by a fellow Redditor who goes by mehul4795. It’s available for free on the Google Play Store. You can search for Viddit on the Play Store and then install the app by Aculix Technologies LLP. Alternatively, you can directly visit the app’s Google Play Store page using the link below.
While browsing Reddit on your Android device, you can now easily share links to the Viddit app to download any videos that were uploaded to Reddit. There are at least three popular ways to browse Reddit on an Android device.
- If you use the official Reddit client, you can easily find the Share button below the video post.
- If you’re using Chrome, or another browser, open the post to get to the comments page then tap the three-dot menu button in the browser and select Share.
- In case you’re using an unofficial Reddit client, chances are it may have a built-in video downloader. If not, get to the comments page of the video and tap on the share button. It can be in different places depending on the app.
Regardless of how you share it, find and select the Viddit app from the Android Share menu. Depending on your phone or the app you’re sharing the link from, the Viddit app icon may be labeled as ‘Download‘.
3. Download Reddit Videos with Viddit
Once the link has been shared, the Viddit app will open up with the link pasted into the input field. If this is the first time you’re opening the app, you’ll have to grant Viddit access to your photos and media by tapping on Allow when the permission popup appears. In the app, tap on the big orange Download button.
The video will then be downloaded and saved into your Downloads folder inside the Viddit sub-folder. The downloaded video also appears on the Viddit app along with a SHARE button. This lets you directly share the video with any of your contacts or other social networks directly from the app.
Download Reddit Videos on Other Devices
Even if you don’t have an Android device, you can use the Viddit website to download Reddit videos on your device.
- Copy the URL of the Reddit video you want to download.
- Visit viddit.red using a web browser.
- Paste the link in the input field and click on the SUBMIT button.
- On the next page, click on the button that says DOWNLOAD HD VIDEO.
