How To Loop Youtube Videos
Note: The first method outlined below is not working anymore. Both the autoplay and loop parameters stopped working some time ago and cannot be used anymore. The scripts listed below are also not working anymore. What is still working is the Chrome extension Looper which adds the functionality to the Google browser.
The video portal YouTube does not offer any means to loop or repeat videos automatically. There are however a few possible solutions for users who want to loop a video at YouTube.
The first option requires basic knowledge about YouTube's url structure especially the unique video code that is part of every url. It is possible to change the url of the YouTube video so that it will loop and autoplay automatically. Here is how you can do that manually:
A normal YouTube url looks like the following
You can turn this into a replaying and autoplaying video url by appending the parameters loop=1 and autoplay=1 to the url and changing the url slightly so that it looks like this afterwards
This will open the YouTube video in fullscreen in the web browser, play it automatically and loop it infinitely.
The manual solution to loop YouTube videos is fine if it is only used scarcely. Users who want to loop YouTube videos regularly might want to consider an automated option like the Youtube HD Ultimate userscript which comes with the functionality to automatically loop YouTube videos. Other userscripts are available that offer a similar functionality.
Update: Check out our 4 popular Youtube userscripts review which looks at four of the best scripts that modify the video hosting site to your liking.
At least two of the scripts let you loop the videos on the site. Especially Better Loopy for YouTube is noteworthy in this regard, as it not only lets you replay YouTube videos for as long as you like, but also select a specific part of the video that you can loop instead of the complete video. This in itself is pretty useful and goes beyond what's offered by the manual method and the userscript linked in this article.Advertisement
Or you can write this as an example
This is much better than the one listed above, this actually works the one above does not
Doesn’t work to me. Just black screen.

thnx for the info
you made my day ;)
Awesome. Works great. I am glad there was a way to loop it using the url rather than adding or downloading a special player. Thanks for your help.
Great article. Works like a charm.
“Thanks, it’s wierd but the other way used to work fine and now it doesn’t so I’m glad to have the ‘repeat’!”
now the original way works too on another video, guess it was the video that wouldn’t do it. nice to have two ways.
or you can just you repeat youtube
so a normal youtube url on a video looks like this
if you want it on youtube repeat then you just cahnge it so http://www.youtuberepeat.com/
but if you want it on a certain video and you dont want to be pressing refresh a bunch to search for a video just add repeat before .com and after youtube
There’s another solution right on YouTube, though it’s just a bug and might be fixed sometime.
Put a pause annotation of 0.1 seconds at the very end of your video and it’ll loop.
you go to: http://jveo.net
and Pastle your video link to textbox and click “Repeat Youtube” button
Just as easy to use a site like http://www.tuberepeat.com plus you can choose what part of the video you want to repeat.
Tried it. Does not work.
Right click video
right click pop-out
For Repeat Videos Automatically
Change Youtube to KOLOPO and press Enter
does this increase youtube views?
No, It doesn’t.
Much easier nowadays, at least in Firefox. Just right click and check *loop*. Done.
If you guys would like to loop a YouTube video X times and not indefinitely, take a look at https://vidrepeat.com/
It also lets you repeat a specific part of the video.
