Reddit Video Maker Bot
All done WITHOUT video editing or asset compiling. Just pure programming magic:sparkles:.
Created by Lewis Menelaws & TMRRW
These videos on TikTok, YouTube and Instagram get MILLIONS of views across all platforms and require very little effort. The only original thing being done is the editing and gathering of all materials…
… but what if we can automate that process?
- At the moment, this repository won’t attempt to upload this content through this bot. It will give you a file that you will then have to upload manually. This is for the sake of avoiding any sort of community guideline issues.
- Python 3.9+
- Playwright (this should install automatically in installation)
- Clone this repository
pip install -r requirements.txt
python -m playwright installand
python -m playwright install-deps
On MacOS and Linux (debian, arch, fedora and centos, and based on those), you can run an install script that will automatically install steps 1 to 3. (requires bash)
bash <(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/elebumm/RedditVideoMakerBot/master/install.sh)
This can also be used to update the installation
- Visit the Reddit Apps page., and set up an app that is a “script”. Paste any URL in redirect URL. Ex:google.com
- The bot will ask you to fill in your details to connect to the Reddit API, and configure the bot to your liking
- If you need to reconfigure the bot, simply open the
config.tomlfile and delete the lines that need to be changed. On the next run of the bot, it will help you reconfigure those options.
(Note if you got an error installing or running the bot try first rerunning the command with a three after the name e.g. python3 or pip3)

Contributing & Ways to improve
In its current state, this bot does exactly what it needs to do. However, improvements can always be made!
I have tried to simplify the code so anyone can read it and start contributing at any skill level. Don’t be shy contribute!
- Creating better documentation and adding a command line interface.
- Allowing users to choose a reddit thread instead of being randomized.
- Allowing users to choose a background that is picked instead of the Minecraft one.
- Allowing users to choose between any subreddit.
- Allowing users to change voice.
- Checks if a video has already been created
