Project description


You've probably seen a bunch of /r/AskReddit narration style videos by now. So I set out to start working on a program to automate the creation of them, for fun :) Its still a work in progress, but the current state of the project allows it to:

  • Take screenshots of top level comments of a thread using selenium.
  • Generate audio using the epic Daniel voice for each comment.
  • Have looping background music.
  • Progressively show each sentence as it is spoken for a comment.
  • Composite all of the above into a cool video. Heres a sample.
  • Output high quality content


  • Ability to curate your own comments/support for replies.

Please feel free to make a PR with improvements :)


$ pip3 install revvid
$ pip3 install git+
  1. Go to reddit apps and create a "script" app
  2. Fill it up and update a pic
  3. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret and set your environment variables another pic
  4. How to Mac, Windows
  5. If you are on Windows, download and install this file
  6. If you have a Python 64-bit on Windows, run DanielWindows64bit.reg to allow the voice file to work in a 64-bit environment after installing the previous file.


Note: Currently, the program does not work on Linux, nateshmbhat/pyttsx3#30). If it is possible to get Daniel's voice and TTS working, feel free to make a PR.
