8 Solutions To Loop YouTube Videos & Watch Them Again

Saikat Basu 24-12-2011

It might be a Photoshop tutorial on one hand and Rebecca Black on the other, but you shouldn’t be shy to admit that there have been times you have looped a YouTube video and watched it umpteen times. You might have clicked that ‘Replay’ button a dozen times? Or was it more?

That Replay button sure took a beating and all because YouTube does not provide a natural, human-friendly way to loop a streaming video. The above two needs aside, I do like to loop a few videos myself…mostly when I am trying to learn something or a hummable song. So, I usually sit back – pick one of the ways described below – and put the videos in a continuous loop till I switch them off.

You can too. Just try them all once and then pick the one you like.

Endless YouTube

Endless YouTube allows you to set a YouTube to loop a specific number of times. Plus, with this service you can also loop a part of a YouTube video rather than the entire one. The easiest way to use the site is to alter the YouTube URL in the address bar. For e.g. if you’re watching the The Dark Knight trailer at “” you can watch it endlessly at “ bx2rhzcIVxo “.

You can also go directly to the site and paste the video ID code in the box provided. You can set the part which you want to loop with the two time boxes.

Infinite Looper

You can use the handy bookmarklet or just copy-paste the YouTube video URL in the box provided. You can also use the blue slider to a point in the video to loop only that section. This web service is among the simplest to use.

PlayerTubez comes with a stylish interface. The site is ‘specialized’ for YouTube playlists. Of course, you can use it to play single videos too. You can enter a user’s name and get all his hosted videos as a playlist. The web app has quite a few controls like a feature to play the highest quality video first and to hide the unplayable videos from the playlist. All the remaining default features of YouTube are also available. You can search for videos from here and also connect to the video page on YouTube.

Take a YouTube URL, paste it into the box and hit Replay. The video keeps on looping till you shut it off. You can also try the links to the two looping ideas given on the site which turn your monitor into a fireplace and an aquarium.

YouTube Repeater

The site looks a bit crowded, but you don’t have to visit the site to use its YouTube looping tool. You simply insert ‘repeater’ between ‘youtube’ and ‘.com’ then press Enter. Your video starts playing in a loop. You can also loop a portion of a video by fixing the start and end points. Launch the mini-player if you want the looping video to play in unobtrusively in the background.

Loop YouTube Videos with Chrome Extensions

SmartVideo for YouTube

    I checked this out because for some reason this wasn't working this morning when it has worked all of the other times I've used it:

    Hold your mouse on the video window and double right-click. It will come up with several things like 'Mute', as well as 'Loop'. Click it. Done! When you wish to stop looping any video you click onto, double right-click again and click 'Loop' again (it will have had a tick next to it, showing that it was in use).

      Doesn't work on all videos (HTML5), but it's still a pretty good trick :)

      But ezlooper isn't easy at all to use. You have to copy the whole URL for the looping to work. I prefer those websites in which I only have to append something for looping to work. These are -,,, and also

    It seems redundant to have so many Youtube repeater sites in existence. I just use Youtube Repeater because it's so easy to just type "repeater" into the URL instead of having to open new tab, copy, paste, etc.

    Though having a repeater as an addon seems like it could be useful. I'll definitely check into that. Thanks!

      Try adding "pipe" instead of "repeater". Much better option.
