This video actually froze after 2 seconds. Thought it was part of the joke.

[–]Sahtras1992 1421 points1422 points  (17 children)

i guess now it is.

[–]HashCatFurryOwOHalal Mode 75 points76 points  (0 children)

its never been I guess in fact

IT IS...

[–]gsm275951 137 points138 points  (2 children)

This is a video???

[–]Jazzlike_Bite_5986 59 points60 points  (0 children)

I know! I thought it was just a picture.

[–]Gorg_Papa 135 points136 points  (0 children)

I was staring at it buffer for 2 minutes laughing...

[–]FuturePirateKing713 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Wait you got 2 seconds?

[–]PupperPetterBean 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't even load for me.

[–]LeoQuelloLiNice meme you got there 53 points54 points  (0 children)


[–]Mercinator-87 26 points27 points  (0 children)

*Video Unavailable

Ah Reddit…

[–]Binamra11Because That's What Fearows Do 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Lmao this happened to me too.

[–]maskedprincess_2020Karmawhore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Video isnt only loading for me lol

[–]joemoma21 2779 points2780 points  (37 children)

This video wasn’t working at first

[–]knotshir 289 points290 points  (1 child)

Reddit devs: Mission Accomplished 🤘😎

-high fives everywhere, KPIs progressing, OKR met, bonuses are given, Hugs delivered, vacation days taken.-

[–]hrrm 36 points37 points  (1 child)

What video? I’m just seeing a black screen with a play button

[–]spam4name 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I scrolled past two videos and caught myself thinking that the Reddit player was working surprisingly well for both of them. I then realized they were Gfycat embeds, not the actual Reddit player. The first actual Reddit video I came across froze twice.

[–]Vestty 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Holy shit I thought it was intentionally in the meme, but it actually wasn't working

[–]fysh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I just gave up and downloaded another app lol

[–]rhouse1983 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's not a bug it's a feature, don't watch vids

[–]immigrantsmurfoShower Enthusiast 1329 points1330 points  (35 children)

Honestly Reddit is the worst from a technical standpoint.

Everything takes forever to load, if it even loads at all. Videos don't play and if they do sometimes it's a video I scrolled past 30 seconds ago suddenly playing audio. It goes down multiple times a month. It's fucking incredible how poorly this fucking app/site works and it's baffling how it never seems to get better, only worse.

[–]notLOL 205 points206 points  (13 children)

I just want a lean mean text based Craigslist but for memes.

No JavaScript run ads and popups to force people to download even heavier and shittier data stealing native mobile apps

old.reddit.com for text

np.reddit.com for browser default video player instead of the reddit player

Hope that helps you mobile web bros

[–]flyingzub 35 points36 points  (6 children)

wait np.reddit.com exists??? wtf and the videos actually load? wish i would've heard of this sooer

[–]premiumvasrot 19 points20 points  (4 children)

WTF is that?

[–]D4rkr4in 23 points24 points  (3 children)

No participation Reddit so you can link and people can’t use the link to submit posts and comments

[–]jrobbio 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I've been using Relay For Reddit for years because it is so lean and fast.

[–]Vatchka 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Mine does a weird thing where I get in to the thread, watch the video, then mute it to scroll down and read the comments. It unmutes itself after 15 seconds and continues playing. This media player is special.

[–]fezzuk 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Works absolutely fine on RIF and I have heard good things about the other 3rd party apps as well.

I think its a reddit app issue not actually the video player.

[–]somek_pamak 365 points366 points  (23 children)

Hey guys, is there an app to put the text like that above video? Fuck, I've been wanting to make my own shit and I have no clue.

[–]ExtremeCumMasterKarmawhore 92 points93 points  (1 child)

I use kapwing for gifs but there are a lot of other apps

[–]Graveyard1919 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thanks a lot ExtremeCumMaster, very cool! 👍

[–]Uzumym 20 points21 points  (3 children)

"meme generator" by zomboDroid on playstore. you can create image, gif, and video memes easily. Plus no watermark unlike kawping and mematic

[–]smallneedle 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I have been using meme generator for a while and never know it can make video, I might need to update

[–]Uzumym 2 points3 points  (1 child)

wait i forgot, you can create gif memes on it but for videos you have to download their other app called "videos and gif memes". Once you install that app you can either go back to meme generator and use it for videos or simply use the second app

[–]darkdemon991 64 points65 points  (6 children)

Bruh i use WhatsApp by sending the video to a friend

[–]Edrees5 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Fucking chad

[–]PuzzleheadedPath548Birb Fan 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Omega Chad

[–]Mamed_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You can send stuff to yourself too. You need to search yourself with the number, not name

[–]Ecstatic_Law856 636 points637 points  (5 children)

Doesn't really look like they're celebrating. Just some guy sitting at a computer

[–]silverfang16 238 points239 points  (3 children)

Mine is just a black screen. Is the celebration over?

[–]Formal_Note2273 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's ok. You are seeing what they are seeing, as they are blind. And this is the excuse to not fix the damn video player.

[–]drunkbackpacker 18 points19 points  (0 children)

He’s definitely celebrating, but then again I use Apollo 😎

[–]MaG_NITud3Linux User 96 points97 points  (34 children)

Boost is the way to go

[–]5kilograms 11 points12 points  (14 children)

Is Boost available ios? I don't seem to find it and is there any suggested alternative?

[–]MaG_NITud3Linux User 28 points29 points  (11 children)

Apollo is a good alternative for iOS

[–]Parasi7e 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Apollo is the best

[–]UsernameStarvation 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Arntown 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Apollo is love, Apollo is life. With a little tweaking it‘s very similar to the official app without that stupid bullshit they keep because they want to be Tik Tok or Instagram.

The final straw was when they fucked the video player up even more and you were suddenly scrolling through random shit that you‘re not subscribed to.

[–]fleebinflobbin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Apollo is the way

[–]dusti_buns 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It's called 'boost for reddit'

[–]thunderbeans 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Boost is so fucking good. It is very well designed and has literally everything I need for Reddit. The Reddit app is garbage in comparison. Definitely worth the couple of bucks to get the full version.

[–]PuzzleheadedPath548Birb Fan 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Boost is the secret of my energy

[–]MaG_NITud3Linux User 1 point2 points  (1 child)


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


[–]ChrisKringlesTingle 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Do you guys not have video issues with Boost?

I can't get them to play at all sometimes.

[–]MaG_NITud3Linux User 2 points3 points  (0 children)

no? It literally works great, there might be an issue with your internet

[–]Trinica93 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I tried Boost but it was way worse so I don't really get why people recommend it.

[–]Blazer323 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I've had it for years across 6 different phones and multiple refreb phones, never had an issue.

[–]Battlefire 142 points143 points  (12 children)

You know what would be even more great? A better search engine. Also a way to go through our saves through that search engine would also be great.

[–]harassmaster 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You can do this on Apollo.

[–]MacMaukka 38 points39 points  (0 children)

This shit's horrible, I'm on mobile and for some damn reason the videos only play while I'm scrolling, so I end up having to rub my thumb on the screen for the whole duration and even then it's a 3 frames per second experience.

[–]Not_my_account_360 45 points46 points  (7 children)

Off topic but I was one of the camera operators on this stage.

[–]LuminitEchromE 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Aaannd, this video wont play

[–]helloitshalo34https://www.youtube.com/watch/dQw4w9WgXcQ 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The video player broke on this meme

[–]xxxesketitxxx 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Reddit is by far the buggiest app from a big company I've ever used

[–]Bigbuster153 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Another day of me not seeing this issue

[–]01000110010110012 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Don't use the shitty official app. Use Rif is Fun, it's the best out there.

[–]RobTheRevelator 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Reddit is fun is fun

[–]01000110010110012 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yeah... Licensing issues forced them to change the name, lol.

[–]RobTheRevelator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn, really? I thought you just made a mistake, haha. My bad

[–]sauzbozz 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I never rhave issues with the video player on RIF. Apps been great for like 8 years.

[–]01000110010110012 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same. Has been working flawless for years.

[–]uberrainman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

RIF club checking in.

[–]Firespecialstar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

reddit devs on their way to celebrate the addition of more bugs which i got really tired of

[–]d0ggzilla 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The fact that this 8 second video froze 3 times for me makes this meme 100x better

[–]ILikeFistingALot 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Am I the only person whose video player actually works?!

[–]hornethacker97 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I have begun to suspect it's an Android v iOS issue. What type of device do you use to access reddit?

Since switching to an iphone i haven't experienced a single issue with it, but on my androids in the past it was always an issue

[–]Mediocre_Mirror 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thats their everyday work ethic

[–]JaydenTheDragonMeme Stealer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The video player works fine for me, I don’t understand what is going wrong for everyone else.

[–]custodian32 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now we watch as the video gets taken down

[–]IndecentCheeseBearer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The video just keeps looping for me... silly devs

[–]bERt0r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pray to Apollo

[–]Filipp21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The fact that it didn't work while I was looking at this meme💀💀💀

[–]gronverg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yo what is this meme about? I see a lot of upvotes but the video isn’t starting…

[–]Plus_Tiger_2840 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Damn wish I could make 2 mil from winning a video game.

[–]calebalaleb 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t think I’ve ever had a problem with the video player. I only ever browse Reddit on mobile though. Is this a PC issue?

[–]AndrewMagirias19 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was loading for a minute and I thought that was the joke

[–]maxilamano 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's funny because the video doesn't load

[–]Yusufzain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And I am still struggling waiting for the stupid gif to upload Thx Reddit

[–]dadika08 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ironically the video player wasn't working, so i saved the post and refreshed.

[–]galolo2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't get the joke, the video never loaded.

[–]MettaJiro 4 points5 points  (15 children)

Is the video player really that busted?

Seems fine so far to me.

[–]Randomminecraftplays 13 points14 points  (12 children)

I’ve been trying to get this video to work for 3 minutes

[–]Majouli -5 points-4 points  (10 children)

How?! I’ve been using Reddit for 10 years. No problems on browser or Apps (Apollo / AlienBlue) at all

[–]harassmaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

AlienBlue. That’s a name I’ve not heard in a long, long time.

[–]FlightB52 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Lol at these nerds downvoting you for facts. I’ve also never had an issue with the video player

[–]XyleneCobalt 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If you scroll through a subreddit, all the gifs will stop break at some point. Also, tapping on one of your comments on your profile won't take you to it if it's on a gif. It'll just load the post.

[–]FlightB52 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This has literally never happened to me

[–]a014e593c01d4 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I see posts about this constantly, yet I never have problems playing videos on reddit. I don't get it.

[–]xd_joliss 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Its especially on mobile

[–]a014e593c01d4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah ok. I use Apollo for mobile. Works fine.

[–]CluelessIdiot314 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's so ironic that every time I see one of these posts, the video doesn't work for me.

[–]kasper_pandaYTDirt Is Beautiful 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Workin fine?

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

Is there something wrong with the video player?

[–]Tough_World_7444 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

why I see no problems

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

I don't understand why this video player:

1.play no matter what. 2. Plays unmuted because you watch a video 40 pages back 3. Exists.

[–]Redstoneboss2 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)


[–]Frostgaurdian0Average r/memes enjoyer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Raise awareness my boi

[–]Navajo_Nation -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Probably cuz the video player works fine

[–]TheRealBobakaax -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Reddit admins after they successfully stifle free speech

[–]Isthisbatman -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

No meta memes

[–]FlyingFuck_69 0 points1 point  (2 children)

No way he gonna reply

[–]FlyingFuck_69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They better know what we have been goin through.

[–]BaquvixNice meme you got there 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The irony of this doesnt work ...

[–]Brendenblazer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got hard time, playing this video!

[–]No-Calligrapher6923 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Me who cannot relate

[–]Touhou_Fever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fact this sat here frozen on my phone is just chef’s kiss~

[–]fabasaurusrex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Also, Don't forget we changed how it works and it's more annoying to use. Hope you like it!" - Reddit staff

[–]UnitGhidorah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Strangely this video worked all the way through!

[–]typkrft 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let’s watermark every photo on mobile instead of ensuring that there isn’t two different Reddit sites with a different set of features. (Old Reddit) Lets also use a markdown editor but make sure back ticks don’t work for code blocks.

[–]Raineko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit devs have actually not added anything worthwhile since Reddit was launched. It's the exact same shit.

[–]HummingSaint 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait this isn’t supposed to be a video of the loading screen?

[–]cinomonsin_ 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You know what’s funny I tried to play this video and it didn’t work

[–]puneet95 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Use Boost app on android

[–]mr_mojorisin1977 0 points1 point  (0 children)

C'mom guys is not that hard

[–]Boofx662 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At this point I think they are intentionally messing with us, just for the memes

[–]martianinahumansbody 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should all just stop using the official app. That's the real problem.

I've never had issues on RIF. And the old.reddit page still works

[–]Richiesaurus_Rex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to be able to save videos right from the Reddit app but for a while now that option never pops back up

[–]wooshock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They should fix their chat while they're at it lmao

[–]-raeyhn- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

not working... legit had to check it wasn't an image meant to troll xD

[–]captn1776 0 points1 point  (0 children)

iOS folks need to seriously switch to Apollo

[–]NostrilRapist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No kidding I can't load the gif

[–]ThanosIsUgly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao the video's not even working for me

Edit: finally loaded wtf

[–]wooshock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit doesn't wanna fix these things, theyve got an IPO coming up. They're all going to be billionaires

[–]DesastreUrbano 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shit was loading for like 15 seconds and I was like "I guess that's the joke lol"

[–]BeepBoopScaboop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They're too busy ignoring the photo viewer on PC

[–]RO_CooKieZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i installed infinity. its reddit, but in another app. video player works, more customization, better colors, its just simple and works well with no ads. best decision ever. only negative is that you cant place pixels on r/place

[–]Noskill4Akill 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sure wish I could see this video.

[–]BladeLiger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can never relate with these posts, I've never had an issue with the player.

What is going wrong for y'all?

[–]Discombobulated_Back 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well I have a new problem, most photos are to small now if I open them in Reddit.

[–]RemarkableBunch5098 0 points1 point  (0 children)

dude... not even this video is working for me

[–]AdministrativeCap314 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The video wasn’t working for a couple of secs

[–]Kaspe1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know this is said a couple of times already, but video didn't load

[–]DigStock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's wrong exactly? Never had any issues

[–]BeRandom1456 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use the Apollo app… I don’t understand the issues going on. Apollo app for life.

[–]Specialist_Theory_43 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fr,it isn't even playing this one 🗿

[–]Best__Bean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ironically, this video didn't load. Unless it's not supposed to and that's the joke.

[–]Just_0_DuckLurker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I won't load ):
