Watching Video Through A Reddit Filter Just Got Better

reddit.tv

If you like watching random videos on the Internet but want them a bit less random, you can tune into reddit.tv.

Launched in 2009, reddit.tv pulls video posted on the link-sharing network into a dashboard, allowing viewers to “easily flip through the hottest videos of the day and see what’s going on in your favorite subreddits or what’s popular on reddit from your favorite websites and platforms.”

Yesterday, the site updated its layout with an HTML5 player, a larger video screen and a slicker overall look.

The main video source is from the r/videos subreddit, but there are also channels devoted to specific topics (Full Movies on You Tube, Science, Today I Learned) or sources (PBS, New York Times, Vice). You can also add a channel for any subreddit.

Currently no ads are served on reddit.tv (other than those that are attached to videos in YouTube).

The creators of the redesign said it’s a work in progress: “Even though reddit.tv has been around for 5 years, reddit.tv is back in alpha. It’s a great way to watch video online, but it’s still finding its way. There are bugs we plan to address and improvements we plan to make. We’d love your feedback around any issues you run into.”

We like it so far, for sure. Without it we might never have seen this:
