Quite some days back we showed you how you can enable or disable the autoloop feature of YouTube videos. Looping a YouTube video is very easy and sometimes it’s triggered by default which can be annoying. You can use different methods to loop Youtube videos, whether it be by installing a FIrefox extension, modifying the URL or using a third party web application.
Let’s see each of these methods one by one.
1. Loop YouTube Videos By Modifying the Video URL
The easiest way to continuously loop a YouTube video is to add &loop=1 at the end of the YouTube video URL. Suppose the URL of the YouTube video you are watching is http://www.youtube.com/watchv=XXXXXX. To loop this video, all you have to do is modify the URL to http://www.youtube.com/watchv=XXXXXX&loop=1 and reload the page.
And if you are embedding a YouTube video in a blog post and want the video to be auto played when the page has finished loading, add &autoplay=1 at the end of the video URL.
2. Loop YouTube Videos Using Endless YouTube
EndlessYouTube is a neat option when you want to loop YouTube Videos without having to install any browser extension. All you have to do is modify the URL of the YouTube video from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXX to http://www.endlessyoutube.com/watch?v=XXX.
The service is ad supported but worth giving a try if you want to loop YouTube videos infinitely.
3. Loop Only a Portion of a YouTube Video using a Greasemonkey Script
All YouTube videos contain a replay button at the end of the video which can be used to replay the video from start. However, if you want to automatically loop YouTube videos endlessly, Loopy for YouTube will be useful. Loopy for YouTube is a Greasemonkey script which adds a loop button underneath every YouTube video, as shown in the following image:
The interesting thing about the extension is that it can be used to loop only a portion of a YouTube video. Just specify the starting and ending time of the loop and leave the script to do it’s job. So if you are watching a long movie on YouTube and want to loop a song again and again, this extension is certainly going to help
