Have you ever wanted to play a YouTube video repeatedly in a loop? Maybe it’s a song, a TV show, a kids video, music video, something funny, whatever it is, you’d like to play it repeatedly on a loop. While YouTube is generally designed to play a video once and then either stop playing or move onto another different video in a playlist automatically, a hidden feature allows YouTube users to replay any video in an infinite loop, without having to turn to any tricks, funky third party websites, shady downloads, or anything else. The new YouTube looping playback feature is built right into the browser based player and is easy to use.

To loop a video with YouTube for infinitely repeated play, be sure you are using a modern web browser. Whether that is Chrome, Safari, or Firefox doesn’t matter, as long as it’s a new version, it should support the looping video feature. The loop trick also works the same on any operating system, so it shouldn’t matter if you’re on Mac OS X, Windows, or Linux. The rest is really easy and it works with any video or movie that is on YouTube or from YouTube, even if they’re embedded in a webpage.
How to Set a Playing YouTube Video to Loop Repeatedly

1. Open any web browser and visit any YouTube video, for example purposes you can use the embedded video below which plays 9 seconds of crickets chirping (exciting!).

2. Start playing the video as usual, then right-click (or two-finger click on a Mac trackpad) on the video as it’s playing to bring up a hidden menu of options, choose Loop from this popup menu.

3. The video will now play repeatedly in a loop, you can pause or stop the video as usual or right-click and choose Loop again to uncheck the looping playback feature and stop the movie from repeatedly playing.
This is a great feature that is not yet well known, but it’s quite useful for obvious reasons and should be appreciated by many YouTube viewers for all kinds of videos.

There doesn’t appear to be any limitations on the video loops or on any videos themselves, you can loop long videos or short videos, videos belonging to someone else it doesn’t matter, if it’s on YouTube it will have the loop feature. This can be great if you want to repeatedly play an album or song on YouTube, or the same show, or some nice scenery for a screen saver or mood video, the use cases are wide. Enjoy!

Note: at the moment this appears to be limited to desktop versions of YouTube, so Android and iPhone users won’t yet have the ability.
