The very own website of Reddit has recently inaugurated the new and advanced video player for its users so that they can now instantly post videos. This newly developed player have been tested and examined in more than 200 groups, so called as subreddits. According to a given survey from Amazon, Reddit is one of the eighth most viewed websites around the globe with around huge 48 million yearly visitors.
The users very well know that the reddit posters can not only share images and gifs but can also share links and texts as well since like 2016. The content makers had to go through really time-consuming , exhausting long processes of posting videos using the third party hosting manifestos, copying the URL’s and then sharing them as posts.
This created a big hindrance for some users who capture videos on their phones and want to share the same instantly with their respective subreddits. So this new feature clearly made this process an efficient one. One of the senior Analyst at the Research center stated ‘ By setting their own kind of content Reddit can start adding advertisements on top of it and even legalize their content.’
It is reportedly known that video is assigned more of a premium content type.
Unfortunately , there might be many policing issues with such a content that enables video uploads, which even other big social networks too face including the facebook, instagram and twitter.
It would be really a tough task for the Reddit moderators but they can successfully opt out for this innovative feature. The moderators even have to take care to avoid such copyright infringement and the content which might not be suitable to family audience as well. Additionally, this will be only available in certain communities and not across the entire set.
