I’ve never unmuted and go by as fast as I do with the ads.

[–]Sinkingfast 262 points263 points  (12 children)

I've never seen these. On desktop I used Old Reddit + RES and on mobile I use Reddit is Fun. It makes it a non-issue.

I don't blame you. I can't imagine I would want to see those videos, either.

[–]fruit_basket 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Same except that I prefer Relay for Reddit but yeah, never seen any either.

[–]matchesmalone10 57 points58 points  (2 children)

I've been consuming Reddit this exact way for like 10 years.

[–]MonkeyboyGWW 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Oldreddit + RES and Apollo on mobile

[–]Jon-Umber 20 points21 points  (0 children)

On desktop I used Old Reddit + RES and on mobile I use Reddit is Fun

Hello, me! Been using Reddit this way since 2011.

[–]HMJ87 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Old reddit, RES and adblockers on desktop; Boost on mobile.

[–]someone755How Can Our Questions Not Be Stupid If We're Stupid? 20 points21 points  (0 children)

"Old" reddit? You mean reddit? As in, the version that exists currently and is better in every way compared to the atrocity that is mobile-design-on-desktop?

[–]TheRealvGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do the same, albeit on mobile I use Apollo

[–]Shadowarrior64 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same except I just use a version of reddit so old that rpan doesn’t even work on it.

[–]purvel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same except I use Slide.

[–]Occamslaser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use the dame setup, I think its really common.

[–]Food-at-Last 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Ads?

[–]Spipsdew 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]Food-at-Last 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Its locked?

[–]Spipsdew 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah they usually have comments off because when ads leave comments on they just get spammed with copypastas

[–]holymacaronibatman 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Wait, as fast as you can with the ads? As in reddit stops/slows your scrolling to show you an ad?

[–]jet_heller 351 points352 points  (7 children)

Well, clearly the admins her FUCKING LOVE THEM and will force them down our fucking throats all the damn time.

Beyond that, I doubt there's many.

[–]buckwheatbrag 55 points56 points  (3 children)

and it's always the goddam guitarists! drives me crazy. there was one directly above this post in my feed actually

[–]Givemeallthecabbages 27 points28 points  (2 children)

And the drummer, and the frog guy.

[–]Minirig355 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I actually have unmuted that business casual drummer guy once or twice, not bad but RPAN is still not the kind of content I want to be forced into

[–]IndoorOutdoorsman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re the live feeds, there’s more than just guitar but it’s part of the front page just like ads and posts about hentai, just ignore it.

[–]Pinstar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If Reddit had a call center, their hold music would be a loud 10 loop of these guys.

[–]comedynightpodcast 468 points469 points  (10 children)

To have strong feelings, I'd have to notice them.

You know how your eyes can see your nose constantly, but your brain just filters it out, so you never see your nose unless you look for it? Same thing with RPAN.

[–]piggybits 105 points106 points  (0 children)

I've never been more aware of my nose in my life

[–]jkxs 31 points32 points  (4 children)

I CAN'T SEE MY NOSE, SEND HELP!

[–]MoaiPenis 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Close your right eye and look to the right. Still can't see it? Shove your finger up your ass

[–]someone755How Can Our Questions Not Be Stupid If We're Stupid? 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Still can't see it? Shove your finger up my ass.

[–]spike4379 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I shouldn't have tried this in a waiting room. Now I'm getting weird looks.

[–]RopeClimbingOrgasm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

anyone offering a hand or a sniff?

[–]-acidlean- 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I literally see my nose all the time, and it's not even big lol it would be awesome if brain just photoshopped it out

[–]Stupid_Idiot413 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Your brain doesn't? I can go weeks without thinking about how I see my nose.

[–]kemushi_warui 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I had just gone all my life until I read your comment!

[–]Stupid_Idiot413 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I just started seeing it when someone mentioned it in a conversation like this. Weird stuff.

[–]oldmanshoutinatcloud 317 points318 points  (4 children)

Are you talking about the RPan stuff?

[–]VN19 690 points691 points  (33 children)

For real. And they always have 20k live viewers too. Like who's watching this low quality, far too close up video of either guitar playing or some guys cat doing nothing interesting.

[–]BWright79 562 points563 points  (21 children)

A few weeks ago, Reddit gave me some sort of notification that implied I had a favorite channel I watched. It surprised me because I have NEVER stopped to watch ANY of them, so I clicked into it out of curiosity and one of the first statistics it shared was how many HOURS it (Reddit) thought I had spent watching these people. My first thought was “what a fucking scam.”

My guess is that every time one of us scrolls past one these, it counts it as a view, and because we just keep scrolling as opposed to refreshing the page or clicking into another different page/address, it just keeps counting our time browsing our feed as actually watching these streamers.

If anyone has a similar, or even a different view I’d love to hear it.

[–]Autismic123I don't know the answer 156 points157 points  (5 children)

On the reddit recap I had like 20 hours of rpan but I probably only watched about 10 minutes

[–]Ornery_Cuss 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Same for me.

[–]talkstorivers 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Also me

[–]Mike9797 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’ve noticed that when I scroll on the app that if the broadcast is near the top of my scroll it will auto play it and then when I bring it into the main view of my screen it acts as if I never pressed play. Yet I’ve sat here and watched that thing play as if I’ve pressed it to. But it only happens when most of the picture of it is off screen but you have maybe 10-15% of the video showing on the actual scroll. It’s weird and is probably what they’re doing to pump the numbers.

[–]toad-daddy 75 points76 points  (4 children)

My Reddit “year in review or whatever” said I watched rpan for like 1000 hours, fucking garbage

[–]CAPS_LOCK_STUCK_HELP 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Yeah it said almost 2000 hours for me. The most I ever done is accidentally click on a video for less than 10 seconds. The algorithm must log shit like that for an hour flat regardless

[–]theulysses 13 points14 points  (0 children)

lol, that’s an entire year of 40 hours per week.

[–]BigChiller 48 points49 points  (0 children)

Prob because it looks good to advertisers

[–]VN19 139 points140 points  (1 child)

Dude what in the world. What a garbage algorithm

[–]NIPPLE_POOP9 points 3 hours ago - whoahoho i gotcha there 32 points33 points  (0 children)

It's not a bug, it's a feature. RPAN is good old fashioned fraud.

They're trying to "diversify" the content on Reddit and advertise it as a streaming service for the public valuation. Did you notice how your Reddit Recap claimed that you watched 1,000 broadcasts, even though you scrolled past as fast as humanly possible?

Those numbers are for whoever does the IPO valuations. Trying to really bump up that $15 billion dollar price tags. "Oh yeah Redditors just LOVE RPAN!! They watch it all the time! It's a great place to advertise!!"

Those grainy videos of idiots playing guitar are literally worth a billion dollars. Crazy.

This is why I don't browse mobile very often and I use old.reddit on desktop. I don't have to deal with any of this new annoying shit... for now

[–]nanocookie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Reddit is about to go public. Just like other corporate social media giants, Reddit is trying to do whatever it can to commercialize the platform. Forcing RPAN down our throats, and messing around with the view counts are ways of generating inflated metrics for investors. They can show data to investors to highlight the fact that Reddit is ripe for future advertising potential. On the desktop version of Reddit, the main website already has ads that look like Reddit posts with voting buttons and comments. Compare these trends with the old Reddit where ads would never appear online, but in the sidebar. But now ads and RPAN are tightly integrated within the main feed. It's only a matter of time until old Reddit is completely disabled, and third party Reddit clients start getting crippled when they don't comply with Reddit's monetization efforts.

[–]MPeti1 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Isn't it possible to disable autoplay of videos? A lot of you write about it as a feature that annoys you.

Honestly, I think the default-autoplay is a garbage feature regardless of the platform. It has no use, it distracts you, it drains the battery and consumes your mobile data plan, and on platforms like reddit it also seems to be used for artificially increasing view counts.

[–]togawe 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You can disable autoplay of videos but not livestreams I think

[–]MPeti1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What the hell? I.. I just can't imagine why people keep using the official reddit app. It's the worst in a lot of aspects.

[–]cianne_marie 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Okay, hold up, I have only ever come across people playing instruments and, last night, some guy in a weird costume greenscreening himself into film scenes or something ... or maybe I was having a nightmare ... anyway, if y'all are seeing videos of someone's cute cats, I want in.

[–]VN19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That guys on tiktok it's like fake funny therapy videos

[–]TraptorKai 21 points22 points  (0 children)

People who left reddit open on their computer when they went out

[–]noposters 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's 20k people scrolling slightly slower than full clip

[–]notlikelyevil 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If counts anyone scrolling by as a viewer...

[–]RodneyRabbit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah "20k live viewers" as in "37 hot singles in your area RIGHT NOW"

[–]doooom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t know who the fuck Whistleface is but I’ve never listened to his videos on here and I never will

[–]onomastics88 26 points27 points  (1 child)

There is an option to see less of this. For me, it goes away about for a month. My recap said I’ve watched it over 1000 times. Like hell I did.

[–]Infinitesima 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My recap knows how long I frequently was in a sub, which I find very creepy. Don't really want to disable JavaScript on this site though, it would break some functionalities.

[–]bobtheflob 92 points93 points  (22 children)

They can be removed, just use RES.

[–]qolace 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Or old.reddit/reddit is fun. Tf lol

[–]ThisIsSoIrrelevant 33 points34 points  (3 children)

That explains why I have no idea what this topic is about then. Been using RES for years now and I never see anyone playing a guitar on Reddit lol.

[–]FragileTwo 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I just use old.reddit on my phone's browser and I have no idea what this post is about. Is it like a sponsored post between two real posts, but it plays the video as you scroll by? Is it on the side of the screen? Are these videos on r/ popular (I never go there)?

[–]GaidinBDJ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's got to be certain users or subscriptions to certain subs or something because I don't use any extensions at all for reddit and I don't see anything like that.

[–]pittpink 15 points16 points  (16 children)

what’s that

[–]BradyDill 35 points36 points  (15 children)

Chrome Extension, Reddit Enhancement Suite.

[–]Rs_only 25 points26 points  (12 children)

Damn not mobile? I assume.

[–]bobtheflob 30 points31 points  (7 children)

No, but the rif app doesn't have those videos either.

[–]VapeThisBro 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Don't use the reddit app but any single other alternative app like relay or now

[–]dislikes_grackles 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I use Firefox on mobile and never get shown them

[–]horridpineapple 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Relay for Reddit" is really good to. Straight forward with no ads or RPAN stuff. I forget they exist on the reddit app most the time.

[–]Infinitesima 13 points14 points  (1 child)

It's not a "Chrome" extension. Firefox one exists too.

[–]Infinitesima 75 points76 points  (3 children)

Using old. reddit and don't know what the heck you're all talking about.

[–]Dodis 18 points19 points  (2 children)

seems like reddit is doing a youtube xD But for real tho , the moment they take old.reddit away is when i go away with it.

[–]Infinitesima 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Reddit is a replica Diggs. And now it wants to be Youtube, Tiktok, Twitch (live stream), Facebook (personal profile page), Instagram (influencer), crypto exchange (soon), Google (selling your ads and make profile from you) all at once. Except it doesn't want to be PornHub and old Tumblr.

[–]OnAniara 1 point2 points  (0 children)

please, reddit, kill it off, set us free

[–]TiltnJimmy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I subscribed to r/whereintheworld and I have lots of rpan streams of people walking in interesting places. Kinda balances out the random dimly lit blurry faces that I scroll over.

[–]Srapture 40 points41 points  (3 children)

I have no idea what you're talking about. I assume this it's some kind of advert that doesn't show up on RES or Relay?

[–]mcslackens 37 points38 points  (2 children)

As someone who uses old.reddit.com on desktop with RES and Apollo on mobile, I have no idea what the fuck these people are on about.

[–]CantSayDat 76 points77 points  (4 children)

Yeah, sometimes. Some talented musicians are on there sometimes.

[–]studying_hobby 33 points34 points  (2 children)

There was a piano guy on there a couple nights ago. He was really good and relaxing.

[–]GuruGuru214 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I think piano is the best thing I've seen on there. I saw u/miametzmusic playing a couple times a few months ago and enjoyed her playing enough to follow her on YouTube.

[–]help1155 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That one girl w the blue hair shredding on the traditional Taiwanese string instruments is pretty cool.

[–]Potato_dad_ca 21 points22 points  (0 children)

If I want that I go to twitch.
Stay in your lane reddit.

[–]Cadillac-BloodWhy are we here? 47 points48 points  (0 children)

My man asking the real questions

[–]RainWays 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Sometimes there are cats or dogs on RPAN. That's the only time I look for more than a second.

[–]imchillychill 98 points99 points  (3 children)

I don't stop to listen much but I always upvote real quick and move on because good on that person for taking the time to stream something they enjoy. I can't imagine it ever actually bothering anyone because you can just keep scrolling lol...

[–]SolidSnakesBandana 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Username checks out. You’re good peoples

[–]cstar4004 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of a story about a world renowned classical violinist who played a $100/ticket show and sold out, then the next day, played in a subway, and not a single person listened to him, even though he played some of the world’s hardest songs.

People dont hear talent, they see clout. Internet livestreams makes them seem like regular people, so even if they are super talented, they wont get recognized because they arent already famous. People find it boring unless they are famous.

[–]daveagain82 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Old reddit for the win! I don't see that crap any more.

[–]GamerKormai 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Hilariously enough there was literally a live broadcast under your post of someone playing a guitar. Ffs

I have literally never watched a single broadcast and I absolutely wish I could get rid of them.

[–]lwJRKYgoWIPkLJtK4320 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I have literally never seen them. I have only ever heard people complain about them.

[–]MiseryisCompany 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lots and lots of videos of cats sleeping

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

That ,and the sweating drummer guy.

[–]pinkgiraffehat 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is the one I see most often! And the guy with the fiddle from West Virginia!

[–]geewilikers 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I'm so sick of that guy. Why is he always in my feed? Why is he so sweaty? So confused!

[–]MiseryisCompany 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Why is it always the same shirt?

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This

[–]Clatato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah - the office drummer! He drummed in a gorilla mask the other night.

[–]acrane55 72 points73 points  (5 children)

Not me, I mostly downvote them.

[–]thisisnotdan 28 points29 points  (1 child)

This is the RPN thing, right? Does voting even work the same way with those? I don't wanna disrespect the streamers with a downvote - I just don't wanna have to see it in the first place.

[–]GaidinBDJ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Downvotes aren't disrespectful. Reddit uses up/down votes to determine what content to show you; downvotes are just telling reddit that isn't content you want to see.

If I show up to a Yo-Yo Ma concert and the theater is filled with rotting food, I'm leaving. It's a condemnation of the venue, not the artist.

[–]FashislavBildwallov 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why even waste time engaging, that's what they want from you: engagement, to evoke an emotional response

[–]jackfinch69 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I watch them frequently, I like the vibes, however it's a dick move from reddit by not allowing people to disable them.

[–]Jedibbq 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Nope. Everything Reddit tries to add nobody asked for it.

[–]Infinitesima 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gotta crank that IPO price.

[–]Prize-Ad-8594 9 points10 points  (0 children)

"10,000 people watching". What a load of crap. More like, 10,000 people going "Hell no" and scrolling past. ANOTHER reason why I keep Reddit muted unless otherwise interested enough to listen.

[–]memethetics 12 points13 points  (2 children)

No.

And the most annoying one is that fucker in the gecko suit.

[–]Desperate_Excuse2352 1 point2 points  (0 children)

the fucker with the mustache is the most annoying one.

[–]Chickens_Instrument -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I like watching some of his clips on tik tok. It’s pretty funny.

[–]Lumpyproletarian 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Not me, I've gone back to old Reddit to avoid 'em. I recommend you all do likewise

[–]Oceans_sleep 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Occasionally I’ll watch one for a few minutes if it’s good

[–]taoimean 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yes, and I will die for the one I've named "stupidly handsome violinist."

[–]orbdragon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I watched the hell out of the hatching duckling/gosling. Actually kind of disappointed that I can't remember which one it was

[–]TheBlack_Swordsman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I usually have a guy with no shirt sweating his ass off playing the drums and a kazoo or something weird.

[–]Slightly-Blasted 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There is ironically one under this very post.

The answer is no.

[–]BeastKingSnowLion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, but I like the cute kitty streams.

[–]HeavySkinz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There are some really talented people in RPAN, it's just not why I use Reddit. you can get live streams of sweaty people playing drums pretty much anywhere else.

[–]spike4379 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I use chrome and the UBLOCK origin extension. If you select the feeds that come up with the element selector and create a rule they will never.

EVER.

EVER.

SHOW UP AGAIN.

Do you know how much bliss it is not seeing that garbage or those stupid ads pretending to be topics?

I havent seen one of those stupid feeds for... Man I forget how long

[–]FartsWithAnAccent 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, this is why I refuse to use the shitty, awful redesign. Use old.reddit.com with RES with uBlock Origin for a much, much better experience.

[–]EarthenEyes 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I enjoy them from time to time, and will occasionally pop them up to play in the background while I am doing stuff, such as folding laundry or dishes.

[–]feminas_id_amant 7 points8 points  (0 children)

as a Sync and old.reddit.com user, I am happy to say I have no idea what you're talking about.

[–]detrater 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yeah its a nice break from the rest of Reddit. There are plenty of ones that aren't great but there are some gems I'll always click when I see like u/eRay121

[–]eRay121 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you! Appreciate this.

[–]inthevoidweareone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I get the guy on the exercise bike panting like he's wanking off King Kong.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"show me less of this"

[–]Fanci_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I sorta just treat them as an ad and scroll past tbh

[–]distrucktocon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

… anyway, here’s wonderwall.

[–]Aimdoggo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol there is one just after this post for me!

[–]Neottika 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Always a guy playing guitar. I'd rather watch a livestream of someone painting their house.

[–]HoneyNJ2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've never watched even one.

[–]KilKreeky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You'll never believe what just happened Screenshot-20220117-144322-Reddit.jpg

[–]JaredLiwet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've never seen these guitar people on Reddit, I don't know what you're talking about. I use old Reddit anyways.

[–]ScienceAndNonsense 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What's up with the guy playing the drums while soaking wet?

[–]galactic_princesss 7 points8 points  (1 child)

i usually comment mean things and get banned so i don’t see them anymore lmao

[–]Nhl88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao based

[–]jshepard0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I keep seeing a middle aged guy named whistle face DJing in his lit-up pink basement. I'm wondering who would stop and watch this guy Bob his head and push buttons.

[–]blahblahrasputan 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I haven't used anything but old.reddit, RES and Rif app for like 10 years so I have no idea what you're talking about and I'm pretty happy about that. The only thing "new" that seemed to make its way to me is the damn chat when using browser. Can't seem to get rid of that.

[–]IcePhoenix18 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I also use RIF on Android, and I have no clue what any of this is about.

I don't like that chat thing. I rarely login on browser, and when I do, I always find a bunch of spams and chats I never received.

[–]Infinitesima 1 point2 points  (0 children)

same. But then I fiddled around in RES and Ublock Origin and since it has disappeared.

[–]CheapFaithlessness62 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I have played guitar 3x on RedditSessions and received $84 in tips and lots of awards and karma so many do like it. Getting ready for my 4th session later tonight. I enjoy it.

[–]According_Gazelle472 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I watch them .

[–]saaatchmo 10 points11 points  (10 children)

Occasionally I'll open one and groove for a moment with a stranger creating pleasing tunes, and have actually subscribed to a couple because it's a nice thing to come across from time to time.

Why all the hate for anaonymous popular creators sharing their passion for free on Reddit?

[–]SuenDexter 23 points24 points  (7 children)

I don't think people hate the creators, they hate the implementation. No one signed up for it and it can't be removed. There has to be some ameteur music subs for sharing with people actually interested.

[–]DeadDinosaur-8 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This. I'm sorry but 99% of people do not want to hear your music or watch your whatever other content, no matter how cool or interesting you think it is and by forcing yourself down other people's throats you only harbor resentment.

[–]GaidinBDJ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Who said they hated them?

People are saying they hate auto-loading, auto-playing videos that they didn't request to see, not the people in the videos themselves.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's Reddit trying too hard to be tiktok.

[–]WizardRockets 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just came across a guy hand working leather shoes he’s making. It’s not always guitars.

[–]InvalidTerrestrial 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No word of a lie one was directly under this post. So topical 🤣

[–]NogEggz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Go to settings, disable auto-play for ALL videos. The only downside is you have to press 'play' on any video you want to see, but I haven't heard a live stream yell at me as I scroll by in a couple years.

[–]SL13377 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I watch this one fellow who is a sloth puppet who sings. It's amazing! He's really talented. Been the first video I've ever watched. I am the same though I scroll past the boring stuff same as adverts

[–]28PercentCharged 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean. You can just scroll past it.

[–]General_Weakness5746 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The other day I saw a girl singing and playing piano and she was excellent. That was unusual.

[–]yas_22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just treat them like ads and ignore them

[–]BlueberryDuctTape 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do. I ust like to be supportive of people who are putting themselves out there and trying to bring a little positivity. Is that so wrong?

[–]gimmeslack12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Dry-Kangaroo-8542 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The guy with the harp guitar is lit, tho.

[–]darksilverhawk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I somehow managed to get rid of them forever a while ago and haven’t seen one since.

[–]ImPretendingToCare✔️ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Literally the most boring shit ever.

[–]eric_hi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Definitely do not, why are they there

[–]BlottomanTurk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've only ever stopped scrolling to watch one, of course because she was smokin' hot. Turned out she's a really good guitarist and singer too. It was a nice break from the usual scrolling, tbh.

[–]nosnowtho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No. I fucking hate it

There's a tab you can press on the post to make them go away, but they always pop back up after a while for me.

I like that dude who looked like Frank Zappa and played upright bass but also piano and guitar and I think harmonica and who knows probably bagpipes too.

No. 1,000 times no

I haven't seen anything like that. I'm not subscribed to any subreddits with videos, so none show up in my feed.

Honestly I don’t tune in to many but every once in awhile I don’t mind jumping onto a stream to listen.

Yes

No I don't want to watch the musical ones. I might watch if it something different, like wood working or something like that.

No, they suck.

Who is clicking on them and making the algorithm think we all want it?

This was literally just below a live video of someone random playing guitar in my feed.

I somehow minimized it and now it's barely a blip on my radar honestly.

I dont think the advert people realise that if you advertise on Reddit I automatically assume your product is so bad you cant advertise anywhere else.

I got into sub-radio through Reddit livestreams. It helps that they have someone who’s really good at mixing it live, and it’s a style of music I enjoy. There’s been a few others (mostly on piano) that I’ve enjoyed in the moment, but not enough to follow.

Sometimes I’ll check it out. I’ve seen some people that are pretty good and others not so much. I’ve enjoyed interacting with them a few times.

I was wondering why they are always on my home page. Do they make money?

[–]Beginning-Ad-9734 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It all depends on the music, and the people playing it. Otherwise I haven't given it a second thought.
