How To Download Videos From Reddit

There’s a reason Reddit is the 5th most visited website in the US, and 13th in the world. It’s a constant source of the latest news, funny videos, and all sorts of fascinating information. One of the things that people can share is videos, from hilarious gifs to home-made videos, but Reddit doesn’t make it easy to download them.

Fortunately, there are a few websites that make it possible to download Reddit videos. Not all of them download videos with the full audio track, as Reddit stores these separately, but some of them can do this. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the best options available, as well as how to get them to work.

How to Copy a Reddit Video Link

In order to use any of the websites on this list you’ll need to follow these instructions to get a link to the video itself:

Video URL

  1. Go to the Reddit thread with video you want to download.
  2. Highlight all the text in the address bar of your browser.
  3. Right click and then click on Copy, or press Ctrl + C.

Direct Video Link

  1. Go to the Reddit thread with video you want to download.
  2. Click on Share below the video.
  3. Click on Copy Link.

Redv

One of the simpler options available, redv can help you download videos from Reddit quickly and easily. The web version will only download the video or audio separately though, so if you want to capture both together, you’ll need to download their desktop app.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Paste the video’s URL or link into the text box by right clicking it and then clicking on Paste. Alternatively, left click in the box and then press Ctrl-V.
  2. Click on the orange arrow, and it will take you to a page showing the video.
  3. Click on the orange Download button, and it’ll then take you to the video itself.
  4. Click on the three vertical dots options button at the bottom right of the video.
  5. Click on

For an even quicker way to use it, you can just add ”dl” after ”reddit” in the URL. This will automatically take you to the download page on Redv.

For example:

Ummm from Unexpected

Viddit.red

Viddit.red is another good downloader site with some extra options. You can download the video without audio, and the audio without the video, both in mp4 format. You can also download the video with both video and audio tracks automatically combined, as well as convert the audio track into an mp3.

You’ll just need to follow these simple instructions:

  1. Paste the video’s URL or link into the white text box by right clicking it and then clicking on Paste, or by left clicking in the box and then pressing Ctrl-V
  2. Click on the yellow Submit button
  3. To download just the video, click on the three vertical dots at the bottom right of the video on the left of the screen, and click on Download
  4. To download the video with the audio, click on the red Download HD Video button
  5. Your download should automatically start

RipSave

If you need a bit more flexibility, you probably won’t go wrong with RipSave. It gives you a number of options in terms of video quality which can range, depending on the source, from 240p all the way up to 1080p. You can download the video with or without audio as an mp4, as well as the audio track as an m4a file.

Here’s how to download a video using RipSave:

  1. Paste the video’s URL or link into the white text box by right clicking it and then clicking on Paste, or by left clicking in the box and then pressing Ctrl + V.
  2. Click on the purple Download
  3. Click on the green Download button to the right of the video quality level that you want to save.
  4. A window will pop up. Right click on the green Download .mp4
  5. Left click on Save as…
  6. Navigate to where you want to save the video.
  7. Enter a name for the video.
  8. Click on

RipSave is actually great for downloading from other sites as well, as it supports saving from YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and more. It’s pretty useful to have this functionality all in one place.
