Reddit has pushed for more first-party content in recent years. So instead of just being a place to submit links, you can now upload photos and videos directly to Reddit’s servers. But unlike Imgur, Gfycat, and other popular file hosts, Reddit doesn’t provide you with an easy way to download videos.
Now, thanks to a handy new app from redditor mehul4795, you can download any Reddit video with just a few taps, and unlike other solutions, it even grabs the audio. It doesn’t matter if you use a browser, the official Reddit app, or one of the many superior alternatives – just share the link to this app and it will do the rest.
: Install Viddit
To get started, open your Play Store app and search for ‘Viddit’, select Aculix’s and tap ‘Install’. You can also tap the link below to open the Play Store installation page directly.
- Play Store Link: Viddit (Free)
Step 2: Share the Reddit link to Viddit
Now, if you have a v.redd.it link or any other video uploaded directly to Reddit, just share the URL of the comment section. It should be the comment link or the self-post link, rather than a direct link to the video:
- If you’re using the official Reddit app, just tap the share button below the video while on your front page, or at the top of the thread while in the comments section.
- If you’re using a third-party Reddit client, which usually has more options, make sure to select “Comments” instead of “Link” or something similar when sharing the URL.
- If you’re using Reddit’s mobile website in Chrome, tap the three-dot menu button in the top right corner and select “Share” to initiate this action.
Once your device’s share menu appears at the bottom of the screen, scroll through it and select Viddit from the list. Depending on your phone and the app you are sharing from, it may have the Viddit icon, but with the title ‘Download’.
Step 3: Download the video
The first time you do this, you will need to tap “Allow” to allow Viddit to access your photos and media. From there, the URL should already be entered in the field at the top and video metadata can be displayed below it (but don’t worry if there was an error getting this data). Go ahead and tap on the “Download” button.
The video will be saved to you To download folder in a subfolder named VidditIf you want, you can even tap the share button in the Viddit app right after downloading to share a copy of the file with another app.
