If you are one of them, then you’re not the only person who is dealing with this problem.

Well, every problem in life comes with one or more than one solution. So let’s at all the possible solutions for the problem. 

How to get sound on Reddit Videos?

[Method 1] – Mute and then followed by Unmute

This is one of the widely-followed methods to acquire sound on Reddit videos. To employ this method, follow the below steps:

  • Launch Reddit.
  • Hover your mouse over the bottom right corner of a silent video to see it.
  • Make sure the volume is muted on the video control bar. You must click on the icon if there is a cross next to it.
  • The video will play sound and become unmuted. The sound in the video can be changed by using the slider.
  • You may also need to check your system’s volume settings if you can’t hear anything on Reddit.

[Method 2] –Turn off the iPhone’s quiet mode in Reddit

You may turn off the Silent mode in the Reddit app’s settings on an iPhone so that music always plays while browsing.

Here’s how to go about it:

  • Launch the Reddit app and click on the Profile icon of the app. It will be located in the upper right corner.
  • Under the hamburger menu, choose Settings.
  • Find the “Quiet Audio Mode” under Settings. Switch the toggle off.

  • By doing this, you can ensure that Reddit videos will have sound except for adult content.

[Method 3] – Check the volume settings on your device

It might be the case that the volume on your device is turned down, preventing you from hearing audio in Reddit videos. Verify whether the alert slider on your phone is set to quiet or not.

Certain smartphones, like the iPhone and the OnePlus, have an alert slider. The audio in Reddit videos might not be audible if that slider is set to quiet.

To disable the alert slider on mobile phones-

The right side of the OnePlus smartphone has an alert slider. Verify that the slider is in the lowest position.

If not, slide the button to the lowest position after noticing the red marking.

Hence, the silent mode will be disabled. Reddit videos will finally have sound available.

To disable the alert slider on iPhones-

The mute switch for Apple iPhones is located on the left side of the device, above the volume controls.

Look for the switch; if an orange line is visible above it, your iPhone is muted.

Simply flick the switch, and a message indicating that the phone is now in Ring mode will appear on the screen.

[Method 4] – Increase the media volume

Your smartphone might not be in quiet mode, but the level may be too low for you to hear the audio in Reddit videos.

Go to the Sound and Vibration tab in Settings on your phone. Look for Media Volume here.

You can now begin hearing noises from Reddit videos after adjusting the volume to your preferred level.

Alternatively, you can use a Volume Master Extension if your Reddit video has low-volume levels

[Method 5] – Fix NSFW videos on Reddit with no sound

While the Reddit app mutes all NSFW videos, you might not hear sounds if you are watching NSFW videos with your phone.

Plus, you might not at all be able to hear the videos. The possibility of the video having no audio at all exists as well.

You can watch NSFW videos with sound using third-party programs. Here are a few third-party Reddit apps which you can download on your phone.
