SmartVideo for YouTube is a free web tool and it comes as a browser extension for Google Chrome.

You can also select the “˜loop’ option to put the video on “˜repeat’ and play it over and over.

You can apply the extension’s preferences to individual YouTube videos by hovering the mouse pointer under the video and making the SmartVideo popup appear; alternatively you can set global SmartVideo for YouTube video preferences through the extension’s options. In the extension’s options you will be able to modify other settings such switching to high-definition when you put the video on full-screen and applying the extension’s settings to embedded YouTube videos such as those on Facebook or on other websites.
