Reddit Playlister


What's this?

This is a playlist tool for Reddit which allows you to listen to subreddits. Select a subreddit where people post links to YouTube or Soundcloud, and it will try to play them all for you. Once it has started playing, all you have to do is let it go!

It uses JavaScript to read data from Reddit instead of processing it and storing it locally. This way the links returned should always be up to date and not depend on the performance of my server (and I don't have to worry about databases and all that messy stuff) ;-)

Requests and feedback

There's still a lot of stuff that can and will be done, so please let me know if you have any specific feature requests. I won't guarantee that it will make it in to Reddit Playlister, but I'm keen to hear all you have.

Media quality: If music is pausing frequently, lower quality reduces bandwidth usage and may improve playback performance (quicker buffering). If the chosen quality doesn't exist for the playing clip, it will choose the next lower quality automatically.
This only affects YouTube links.
Interface quality: Some browsers may struggle rendering gradients/shadows/etc. Enable "low" mode for better visual performance. "High" mode may not be available in your browser.

Hey! I wanna play some tunes for you, but I dunno where to get them from. Would you like to pick one or more subreddits?

Sweet as. Now you can choose more subreddits, or just load the ones you've selected by clicking load items. I'll only load one Reddit page at a time, but I'll load more automatically.
