Why does Reddit videos never have audio?

Reddit videos typically come from a variety of sources including educational, promotional, personal, and commercial sources. In most cases, audio is not included as part of the video, meaning it will be silent.

This can be intentional or due to the source material not including audio. Since people post videos to Reddit from many different sources, it can be difficult to keep track of where audio is or isn’t included.

In addition, videos without audio can be much easier to download and upload to Reddit, meaning it is more likely a user will post a silent video than one with audio. Finally, audio can sometimes be added to the post manually, but this usually requires a degree of technical expertise which the average user may not have.

As a result, Reddit videos are often shared without audio.

Do Reddit videos upload with sound?

Why can’t i post videos with sound on Reddit?

Furthermore, Reddit is in the general process of developing an increased focus on quality content, and videos with sound could potentially be seen as distracting among a crowd of text-based posts.
