What is it with the new media player though, because on some subs it’s the old one and that’s alright, but on others it’s a tiktok ripoff that takes you out of the sub if you swipe up; sure it looks cool but it’s utter bullcrap


Cloroxicle123

I figured it out, if you click on the video directly, it will do the Tik Tok rip off shit, while if you click on an image and then swipe to the video, it should be fine

Or try using another app to browse reddit.


metheannoyingone

Yeah, if you are on Android, you can try Infinity for Reddit. It's a free and open source app on F-Droid. It has some bugs, but overall it's better than the official one. Bonus: It has a built-in video/pic downloader


letsgoiowa

It triggers me that so many people think reddit is "an app." Holy Mother of God I feel old.


yoman9595

But if you're on mobile it is an app... (And even the browser version is a web app, so I'm not sure when Reddit ever couldn't be called an app)


letsgoiowa

I mean when they don't realize it's a website and they think it's a mobile-only app, a mobile-only community.


kry_some_more

This is poor web design. To have functions do two separate things, that are meant (should be) to be the same. (I am a web designer.)


Only-Guidance1678

The account that I am on now does that but my other account still has the old format


Flyin_ruski

All the ones I visit have the tik-Tok rip off. I hate the way it automatically uses that and doesn’t send me to the next video in that sub but instead some other stupid shit I likely didn’t want to watch. It’s really lousy when you have a slow connection too.


Janczareq1

Both are horrible mr kenobi


spoffyfox

Finally, someone else on the high ground.


Janczareq1

WE have the highground


spark908

And then if you're not sitting straight up the video player spams landscape and portrait mode constantly when you try to back out. It's terrible!!


smol_catto_

Also hate how the arrow to go to a new comment thread is just gone with the tiktok thing


Accosted_banana

Something went wrong


ManWalkingDownReddit

nowadays images barely load too


alertsaucer5

even the website video player is shit


Deadly9190

It buffers for more than 10 seconds after I open the app it's not my internet prob coz YouTube open in only 1


Sagar_Sirius

Yes.. Happens to me too. Every time I open reddit I have to stare at the loading screen for like a minute or so


Piranh4Plant

Out of all the social medias that copied TikTok’s video format, Reddit certainly did it worst. I can’t even upvote without the video lagging or straight up stopping. And I hate how when you click on it to see it in full screen it’s automatically muted.


Bierbart12

Porn sites have better players


RAWR_Ghosty

That's the only thing they have to do


Pewkie

Well content hosting and a flat comment tree would be all that Reddit would have to do but noooo we need to hamburger stack everything taking up a massive amount of real estate… “ and have it barely load without crashing the page over and over, make sure that exists in there as well.” -the development suits


sc122k

fun fact: the porn industry actually played a central role in improving and innovating online video streaming. Without porn, we probably would not have YouTube, or at least it would not be as advanced as it is now this quickly.


Bierbart12

I think a similar thing might be the reason why we have vibrators in video game controllers


isaybullshit69

That was fine for me. But [threatening to take/] taking action against u/savevideo is utterly ridiculous. Edit: someone impersonated as Reddit and sent a notice, but the bot is now online


MaybeNotTheChosenOne

They act like the stuff they host is their own. Meanwhile they want us to share the shitty links that don't even embed.


insanityOS

Ah, such a shame. If only there was some kind of archive tool, a downloader if you will, that is frequently used with another video website- say, YouTube, a YouTube downloader (we could even abbreviate that to "dl")- that also works on Reddit videos. Such a shame.


isaybullshit69

Ironically, I did just that a few hours ago. I share a link to my bot on telegram and it triggers a script on my Pi which uses `youtube-dl` to download the shared link. As much as I love tinkering, when I'm passing my time on my phone browsing Reddit, I don't want to tinker.


insanityOS

I only download cursed videos to share with a specific group chat, and I only do that in the dead of night so it's not too inconvenient, but it's a really shitty thing that they keep threatening legal action to cover their own asses (and insure their precious ad revenue). Most people are going to be significantly more impacted than me.


Jiehfeng

I've been using the Boost app for years now, all I need to do is enlarge the content by pressing it and click the download button. For images you can download either a compressed version or the highest quality, and for video you can either download the video or download a gif of it. It's great.


isaybullshit69

Hey thanks! Didn't know about Boost.


Champion-raven

It’s just wrong


wutangerine99

Tf you talking about? Ads work perfect


DoneItForTheMeme

thats why we have SaveVideo, wait his bot got disabled


Pewkie

“We aren’t responsible for users hosting stolen only fans content” -Reddit “You are responsible for users using your tool to download the stolen onlyfans content we host” -also Reddit


LetsDoTheCongna

Wait is that seriously why the bot got disabled? Fucking ONLY FANS?


Pewkie

Yeah sounds like they are trying to stifle the ability to download video to keep their legal base clear on that, but I can’t really see why they banned it instead of just giving the same legal defense as their users posting illegal content, other than if they really just wanted an excuse to kill the bot and drive traffic back over to their site with their unusably awful video player


PumpkimJam4812

Why can't big companies just be normal


Pewkie

To be fair they are saying that it didn't come from Reddit and that they don't know what bad information the owner has, but also I don't trust Reddit at all because this is the excuse they have used in the past before it was outed that it did come from them.


xxxarkhamknightsxxx

Either that or they're trying to add saving videos as a premium feature. Either way it's a shitty thing to do


insanityOS

Ah, such a shame. If only there was some kind of archive tool, a downloader if you will, that is frequently used with another video website- say, YouTube, a YouTube downloader (we could even abbreviate that to "dl")- that also works on Reddit videos. Such a shame. Edit: FR though, that's some sketchy bullshit that they threatened legal action against SaveVideo.


noideawhatoput2

Just switch to Apollo. Saving videos is just an included feature with it.


RealGingercat227

What about Twitter?


michmconnell74

Ya twitters is way worse


George2110

At least reddit doesn't interrupt your video with a fuckton of ads like YouTube does.


randomcitizen42

At least YouTube continues playing the video after a short ad. Reddit just stops for no apparent reason and refuses to continue until I restart the app (and can't find the video anymore).


daxi17

At least YouTube's player actually works


Main-Mix7831

Oof


more_than_a_hammer

Oh hey it's you. Ok I'll check again...


ImbaZed

Maybe get the ad free version? idk how u guys still watching ads Its "Youtube Vanced"


wazzuper25

brawlbro123

We don't like you anymore


roarpowder

You used this template wrong, he was seeing better after he took glasses off


thickwonga

Came here to say this. I've never seen the meme used correctly, and it's annoying lmao.


roarpowder

I even saw meme about it


commence_suicide

Yup, Just download Infinity for reddit (android). Pretty much better in every way. No ads, it's free, decent video player...


Dagenfel

Apollo for iOS


Mottis86

I use Reddit Is Fun. Never had a problem.


Financial-Memory

I use Google Chrome...am I the only one...


RedSoviet1991

No, your are not


Knuffya

planetsmasher86

Bacon Reader 4 lyfe


N0_Us3rnam3

Apollo gang rise up


drumzilla1

Apollo is the superior Reddit app. Check it out!


MrNatels

I just hate how the comments are now. It's so fucking annoying. Can't scroll and watch as properly.


Jabbs95

BY FAR the worst video player


Increth

People are still using this meme format incorrectly. Jfc


Merlijntouw

Especially when you tryna watch nsfw video’s


teriaksu

The reddit video player causes me so much grief that I started force closing the app and doing something else more and more often. ​ So... thanks reddit for keeping me away from reddit? You idiot


ImNotEvenJewish

Is it just me or is there no arrow at the bottom right corner to jump to each parent comment on video posts?


DragonJack69

You’re not wrong.


NotUndercoverToppat

TUMBLR


Paradoxahoy

Lol clearly you haven't seen Facebooks video player


usernames_are_hard15

Reddit would be like 5 times better if the videos played well. that and a slider when searching by upload date


Middle-Journalist202

Did you forget tumblr was a thing?


Shiv_ansh_st

I dont actually use so I dont know abt it


Middle-Journalist202

It was awful, 10+ minutes to watch a 30 second clip on a certain update


math_trottier

Instagram is worst


vectoralgebraist

imagine using the stock app for reddit, wow


r3bY_

not sure if twitter or reddit :v


freezerbreezer

YouTube is a close competitor.


LOXinCSGO

True.


SpikerSaS

That's right, it refers to Instagram


Panzergrenade

That is why it is called reddit not watchit.


DuTurkeyMan

it took this pic 35 seconds to load… i have 4 bars of 5g


MothFucker_69

Ah I see you're a fellow user of something something 5g that gives you brain cancer.


DuTurkeyMan

this site already gave me cancer so 🤷‍♂️


fatalcorn7367

If you are on iOS you can just full screen it


daxi17

Half the time the pause/play button doesnt even fucking work


MalleusManus

Despite being the most popular porn site in the world, Reddit really is a crappy porn site.


averag3sandwich

Wait till he found out about tiktok


DavidRooboxALT

That has a decent video player though.


West-Freedom8194

Tik tok is better than this shithole


N238

Literally last week there was a highly upvoted meme where someone complained about videos in YouTube links, preferring the Reddit hosted ones. And it was highly upvoted. Wtf Reddit, make up your mind. Don't want Reddit player, but also don't want YouTube? (The reasoning in the comments was that it messed with the user's YouTube recommendations... which I can respect, but still).


Chino_Kawaii

ever heard of pixiv?


DreamingRealityiii

I hate the new video player. I cant even look at the comments.


Exumane

Yup


justbread_

have you guys not heard of instagram?


madeyoulooktwice

How did it even get approved? It’s so annoying


HairHeel

Swipe down to go back? Video slides off the screen to the right?


jmlafrms

Try Narwhal


TheHuttis

Am i the only one with bad twitter video player? Havent seem anyone complaim about that and its so fucking awful


SCORPIANKING555

Reddit + Tik Tok video player = good??


stan3098

Weirdly the ads play in HD


raven55six

Reddit is good when you use it on computer. That's the way how its meant to be used. Phone app is just a ripoff.


TheHallowedOne11

Hmmm go to tick tock


brunoantonieto

so, have you ever heard of Twitter?


L0rdGrim1

I've never had a problem.


Drac_Hula

I could be in my feed and suddenly a video in the popular tab starts playing. Why?


KellyTheBroker

Thank fuck too. Keeps those stupid 3 seconds to make tiktoks off of the site for the most part.


Zehaldrin

Nah bro, it's FB messenger, anytime someone sends a video and i try to watch it all it takes is a message in another chat or someone to view the new chat and the video has a stroke


Slurpee_12

I’ve straight up stopped watching videos


shudzuo_asoya

Totally.. all i see is pixelated nsfw contents


TheDankestDreams

Someone forgot about tumblr


Im_sorry_im_american

Don’t you dare share them vids y’all. Digg I mean Reddit be all mad nowadays with you sharing videos.


hellothere321123

I’ve used Reddit less because I don’t wanna deal with how shitty the vid player is


YuvQQj

The one on instagram is even worse.


ThePremierCornDog

I thought it was Instagram


FOGPIVVL

That's the one thing Reddit does better than iFunny. Videos. And that says a lot


secretdwarf05

I thought crunchy rolls was the worst.


Sharad527

Reddit employees not fixing their video player only proves that they themselves don't use reddit. Do they have a girlfriend or they use tiktok?


EssemCSH

Have you heard about twitter???


seireiju

I finally tried out Apollo and it's fucking life changing. Instantly snagged that first level of paid features.


aiden_lighty

Fact...


Gerlon_Two_Fingers

Also fuck trying to search for subreddits using the search function. I literally have to google It and be redirected to Reddit


HDmaniac

Facebook video player: Allow me to introduce myself.


Magolord

Is it worse than twitter tho?


LuizinhoSkate13

The man is spitting facts here


chilli_illi

Facebook is much more worse


gianzu

Facebook exists


jjpap11

What pisses me of the most is that if I unmute one video it unmutes all videos after aswell, just why?


Kotegiri-

the left pictures should be switched


RaceGhost47

When they changed the video player I switched to Apollo. I'm not dealing with that


Immediate_Cake6742

anime websites: look what they need to mimic my entrie power


The_Kek_5000

Why is everyone complaining about the video player? I don’t have a problem with it. Or has there been an update I missed?


Sgt_Maddin

9Gag is wore. Like ALOT.


ATrain177

Did nobody test this crap!? Is there a sub to bring back the old player yet?


0range_M00s3

I’ve learnt on mobile if you save the post and I save the video will reset and load properly Does not work for nsfw posts


traiseSPB

And that shit is always pausing my mf music even though I ain’t got video auto play enabled. I’ll commit a vicious war crime if this continues further


DarthRaichu77

When my friends ask where the meme I sent them was from, I don’t say Reddit. I say the app with the first video player and they assume Vimeo. This says a lot about society


Weiiswurst

❤️Relay for Reddit The app layout is just so goooood


sbeve_228

No vk is the worst


nicnic5556

What about twitter


nater_marson

Its ok It just has some jank Not all that bad
