Now Loop on YouTube


YouTube has just added a new option called ‘Loop’ that enables you to auto-replay your favorite Camtasia videos and YouTube videos without any hassles. You can keep playing them on the background while working or when trying to transcribe from audio to text.

Now that you have the chance to loop YouTube videos, you can keep on listening to any of your uploaded Camtasia screen recordings and narrations if in case you’re planning to update it soon with more information, let’s say. You can also watch or listen to any viral hits repeatedly without manually replaying the video.

There are just many things you can do now that YouTube lets you auto-replay videos. This time around, you do not need to use any third-party applications just to do it.

How to Loop a Video on YouTube

  1. Right click on the video.
  2. Click on the “Loop” option.
  3. You’re done! The video will auto-replay and nothing else is needed on your part.

The looping option works on any site where the YouTube video is, whether on the site itself or in any other sites. The only downside is that this function only works for desktops, not yet on mobile devices, as of this writing.
