One of our clients wanted an easier way to search and curate popular YouTube videos from Reddit. The solution was a custom application that automatically pulls out top YouTube videos from a selection of targeted subreddits and displays them to the user along with relevant video details.
Create an application that streamlines the process of curating top YouTube videos from targeted Reddit communities.
This project began with a thorough inquiry into the client’s current process for curating videos both on Reddit and from other sources. This inquiry consisted of questions that revealed where the client was wasting time on Reddit and how an application could fulfill their specific needs. We also determined what categories of content the client was most interested in and created a list of subreddits that matched their interests.
After the needs of the client were identified, we created a prototype application that fulfilled those needs and shared it with the client for feedback. A round of revisions were made to the application and then it was presented to the client for final approval.
After the app was approved, we trained the client to use it and provided two weeks of support to ensure the app was properly integrated to their content curation process.
The app was custom built for the client, but we recreated a generic version and took a few screenshots to demonstrate how it works. If you are interested in licensing the app for business purposes and would like to see a live demo, contact us.
How It Works
A collection of subreddits are uploaded to the app via a simple interface. The user can then download a “session” of YouTube videos from a selection of pre-determined subreddits.
After the user downloads a session of YouTube videos, they are taken to a page that displays a list of videos that were downloaded.
For each video, details about the video from Reddit and YouTube are displayed in the left column. If the user clicks the “Play Video” button, the video will play where the thumbnail is displayed.
Each time a user downloads videos from Reddit, they are saved as a “Session” and can be recalled at any time.
The app saves time (and money) for our client every day. Instead of visiting Reddit.com and doing a manual search for YouTube videos in multiple subreddits, they can simply load up the app and download videos by pressing a single button. The app also displays the videos in a more efficient way which makes it easier for the client to sort through the videos and pick out the best content.
