4 Ways to Download Videos on Reddit With Sound on Desktop

Unlike the Reddit app on Android and iOS, Reddit’s Website does not provide an option to download videos or even images and gifs. But downloading images and gifs is so easy on the web app thanks to browser features. Just right-click on the image or gif and select the Save image as option to download the image or gif to your local storage. However, it isn’t that simple to download videos. Here’s how you can download videos on Reddit on your Desktop.

Download Reddit Videos on the Desktop

The question is whether is it legal to download videos from Reddit. Popular bots like VRedditDownloader, VRedditShare, and SaveThisVideo have been suspended before. Why? Because creators complained that their videos were uploaded to Reddit without their knowledge, permission, or appropriate attribution. Copyright infringement is a real issue.

Reddit is trying to combat these issues by following normal copyright laws. The moderators also frequently remove videos that they found to be infringing copyright laws. In fact, they try to prevent uploading such videos in the first place.

Still, be careful. Do your due diligence before you download videos from Reddit. Read the comments section to see if a creator has claimed ownership.

1. Using Reddit Video Downloader Websites

These downloader web apps can download videos that are directly hosted on Reddit and also those that are hosted on services like Imgur, Gifycat, etc. There are many Reddit video downloaders to choose from like redditsave.com, redditvideodl.com, etc. But we think viddit.red stands out as it provides more and easy ways to download videos from Reddit.

1. Open the Reddit video post that you want to download.

2. Here, click on the Share option below the post and select the Copy Link option. Alternatively, you can just copy the link from the browser’s Omnibar.

3. Once copied, open the viddit.red website and paste the link in the box under the Download Reddit Videos heading.

4. Now hit the submit button to get the download button to the video.

5. On the next page, you should see a preview of the video, along with an option to download the thumbnail and video as an MP3 file, and in video format of course.

6. Just click on the Download HD Video button to start downloading the video. In case, you want to download the video in low quality, there is a menu to choose the resolution.

2. Using the Shortcut to Reddit Video Downloader

With viddit.red, there is a much easier process than opening the web app and downloading the video.

1. Open the Reddit video post you want to download. Now just type ss before reddit.com in the URL.

For example, if the URL of the post is:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/example_post

Just type ss before reddit.com and make it www.ssreddit.com like this:

https://www.ssreddit.com/r/Minecraft/example_post

2. It will directly open the viddit.red website and paste the link. Click on Submit to get the download option

3. Then click on the Download HD Video button to download the video.

3. Using Browser Extensions

Whether you are using Chrome, Firefox, or some Chromium-based browser like Edge or Brave, you can easily download Reddit videos using extensions. Video Downloader for Reddit by RedditSave is a good option as it downloads both videos hosted on Reddit and third-party sites. Also, it is available on both Chrome and Firefox.

On Chrome & other Chromium-based browsers

1. First, install the Video Downloader for Reddit extension from the Chrome Web Store.

2. Now open the video that you want to download on Reddit. Click on the extension icon at the top right corner and select the Video Downloader for Reddit extension from the list.

3. It will open redditsave.com with an option to download the video from the opened Reddit post.

4. Just click on the Download HD Video button to download the video.

On Firefox

1. Install the Video Downloader for the Reddit extension from Firefox Add-ons Store.

2. Open the video that you want to download on Reddit. Then click on the Video Downloader for Reddit add-on at the top right corner of the browser.

3. It will redirect you to redditsave.com where you can click on the Download HD Video button to download the video.

4. Using Reddit Bots

A much easier and faster way to download Reddit videos is by using the Reddit bots. But, there is one major disadvantage to this method. You can only download videos that are directly hosted on Reddit. If the video is hosted on a service like Imgur, then this method will not work.

1. Open the Reddit video post that you want to download.

2. Now scroll down to the comment section and enter the comment u/savevideo or u/savevideobot and click on Comment.

3. You will receive a reply comment with a link to download the video from the Save Video bot. Click on View Link.

4. It will open redditsave.com, just click on Download HD Video to download the Reddit video.

Download Videos on Reddit

All these methods work inside a browser, therefore they all work on all the operating systems from Windows, Mac, ChromeOS, and Linux. Irrespective of the method you are using, you will be relying on redditsave.com and viddit.red services. Also, there are other alternatives like redditvideodl.com, redditdownloader.us, reddloader.com which can also help you to get the work done, but they have more ads than the ones we mentioned.

Downloading videos from Reddit is significantly different on Android and iPhone.
