How to loop a youtube video on desktop?

A few strategies can assist you to keep repeating a YouTube video without having to start it again manually if you require it on a continuous loop. Here’s how to go about it.

  1. Navigate to the video you want to loop.
  2. Right click on the video and you will see a menu option appearing on the screen.
  3. Select Loop option from the drop-down menu.

How to Loop a YouTube Video on Mobile?

YouTube’s mobile app doesn’t allow you to loop a video as it does on the desktop. Instead, you need to add the video to a playlist beforehand. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Open the YouTube app and find the video you want to watch. Create a new playlist by clicking the Save button below the video.

Step 2: All you need to do is Tap on the New playlist button, and enter the playlist name. Choose Private as a privacy option and tap on Create button to create a new playlist.
 If by any chance the video is saved to any other playlist, you can tap on the Library tab at the bottom right-hand side and open the playlist the video was saved by default. Tap on the three dots near the video and select Save to playlist. Uncheck the playlist pre-selected and click on the New Playlist option and then name the new playlist.

Step 3: To access the new playlist, tap see the list (or go to the app’s home screen, tap Library from the bottom menu, and enter your playlist).
Select the Shuffle option (two intertwined arrows).
Tap the arrow in the bottom left corner and then tap the Loop icon (two arrows forming a rectangle) after playing the video.

Once you reach the end of the video, it will automatically loop. Of course, this playlist can have a lot of videos in it. 

Why isn’t there a “Loop” option on YouTube for Android and iOS?

While we are habitual to receiving free Google services such as Google Maps, Search, and YouTube, among others. We often forget that Google is a commercial company that makes money from advertisements. If more individuals start watching the same movie again and over, the chances of adverts being displayed effectively decrease. In other words, having a built-in loop feature is bad for Google’s business.

They eventually introduced it to the desktop version after nine years of requests, but it isn’t going to mobile anytime soon. However, this does not preclude Android and iOS users from looping in YouTube videos. For both Android and iOS, there are a few solutions for looping a video straight inside the YouTube app. It isn’t flawless, but it does the job. How to loop a YouTube video on a mobile phone is described above.


Schedule to Watch Later

Do you want to watch a video but are short on time? Add it to your list of things to watch later. This useful feature is one of YouTube’s most overlooked. This way, even if you’re busy, you won’t miss out on videos.

From the video’s three-dot menu, select add to Watch later. You’ll have to check the Watch later card in the library frequently because this function doesn’t provide any reminders.

To conclude:

These are some of the methods for looping YouTube videos on Android and iOS. Depending on your needs, you can either use the Playlist feature in the official YouTube app or a third-party app, or even the web browser to play YouTube videos.
