Side Note:

To watch videos repeatedly, you have to save it and add it to your playlist. One thing worth noting upfront is that if you want to watch a single video, again and again, you need to create a new playlist and add the video to it. But if you add more videos to the playlist and hit the loop button, all the videos will play over and over in a sequence.

Step #1. Launch YouTube app on your iOS device.

Note: Alternately, tap on the video while it’s playing and then hit the plus button.

By default, this video will be saved to your recent playlist. You may need to tap on Saved button again to bring up Save video to… menu.

Step #5. Up next, give a cool name to your playlist and then make it Public, Private or Unlisted. I’m going to keep it Private.

Once you are done, hit the tick mark at the top right corner. Then after, quit the video.

That’s pretty much it! Now, go and grab a hot coffee and some snacks so that you will enjoy watching the video over and over.

Other option?

There are some third-party apps that let you play videos endlessly. And the ones that I have found pretty good is YouRepeat. It’s available for free (ad-supported) and works with iOS 9 or later. If you want to use the app without any ads, you will need to get the premium version that comes at $6.99. To get started, install the app on your iPhone → launch the app → search the video you wish to watch and play it as usual.

The process is a lot easier on the desktop. Read on…

How to Loop YouTube Videos on Mac/Windows PC

Step #1. Open any browser and load desktop version of YouTube.

Step #2. Click on any YouTube video that you want to loop.

Step #3. Once the video starts playing, simply right click or two fingers click on Mac Trackpad on the video screen. You will see YouTube video options.

Step #4. From the list of options, click on “Loop“.

After you have selected the option, that particular video will play infinite times until you stop it or move on to another video.

This feature certainly saves a few clicks, when you are watching something really interesting and don’t want yourself to bother about repaying the video.

Note: There are also some sites like ListenOnRepeat that allows you to watch videos infinitely. Simply copy the link of the video and head over to the website → paste the link and hit the enter button. However, the process seems more intuitive on the desktop version of the YouTube app.

That’s all there is to it!
