Reddit user Illyism has created Music Player for Reddit, an open source music player that turns subreddit links into playlists.

It works by offering you an extensive list of subreddits on the left-hand side. Clicking on a link adds it to your playlist and gives you the most recently recommended songs as YouTube clips that run in the player.

There are already over 280 subreddits being tracked by the site, so it’s a good way to discover new music.

Illyism says on Reddit: “I made it because I liked listening to music on Reddit and wanted a better interface for it.”
