I think it’s a pattern we’ve started seeing on popular sites wherein the sites are protective of video being downloaded locally and therefore they want users to see the video on their own website or on official iframe embed (instead of providing direct video source link).

In case of Reddit since we already have video poster image as seen on your post, I’ll update the onebox to show poster image and overlay play button on top of that. Similar to what we have for Instagram videos.
