YouTube Loop

Back in 2014, I found a way to loop YouTube videos using a feature of the HTML5 player. It looks like YouTube added "loop" as a standard feature. Just right click inside the HTML5 player and click "loop". This way, you can watch a video on repeat until you pause it or uncheck "loop" from the contextual menu.

It also works for embedded videos. Here's a short video you can use to test the loop feature:


  1. Yay, no more "10 hours of..." videos!

  2. Yay, no more "10 hours of..." videos!

  3. I made a bookmarklet for looping a video with given start and end points

  4. I guess they added this because it is defaultly possible since the HTML5 implementation. If you right click, and right click again a outside of the context menu you get the native options like Loop and "Show controls".
