Looping YouTube Videos Is Easy: Here’s How
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – Google has figured out that people like to loop certain types of YouTube videos. Whether it’s watching ASMR content, relaxing meditative videos, or just listening to your favorite tunes on repeat, it seems people love to loop.
It’s been possible to loop videos for a while, but it seems not everyone knew how to do it and many were turning to third-party solutions.
How to Loop YouTube Videos Easily
Now, YouTube’s interface has been tweaked slightly to make it clearer how to start looping. Right-click on a video and you’ll see the option to loop appear at the top of the menu alongside other options for copying the video URL, embedding code, and more.
Once clicked, the video will then play continuously and you don’t have to worry about a “next” video playing afterwards.
This change has been rolled out now and is widely available on desktop.
Loop YouTube on mobile
It is also possible to do it on mobile too.
To do this, find the video you want to loop, click on the settings cog, and then you’ll see a menu appear with various options. One of them is the loop video option. Simply click on it to activate the loop and watch until your heart is content.
Don’t see the loop option?
If you’ve opened settings but don’t see the loop option, don’t panic. There is another way, but it’s a bit trickier.
- Click the save button to add the video to a new playlist
- Name and create this playlist logically and choose private or public
- Click to view this playlist once it has been created
- Click on the small drop-down arrow and find the repeat button
- Activate snooze, sit back and enjoy
Loop in a mobile browser
If you don’t want to create a playlist, you can use the desktop technique on mobile but without a browser.
Access YouTube on your phone through Chrome. Then click on the three dots in the menu, then click on “request a desktop site”. Once you’re there, you can then press and hold the screen where the video is playing and access the same menu you would see on the desktop. Just click loop and the video will play forever.
