Have you recently discovered a song that is stuck in your head? Do you love it so much that you can listen to it over and over again?

One of the most popular media sharing networks in the world, YouTube, has an autoplay feature, so you can listen to your favorite songs without constantly clicking on repeat. Looping a video can be also useful when you are watching a tutorial on YouTube or if you just want a long ambient video to play in the background.

YouTube had only offered a loop button for its web version until recently when the company added autoplay support for iPhone and Android users.

This article will explain how to locate this function if you weren't aware of it before.

How to autoplay YouTube videos on a desktop?

  1. Log in to your YouTube account
  2. Choose the video you want to loop
  3. Right-click on the video and click on the loop option

That’s it. The selected video will start playing repeatedly until you change the song or turn off the feature.

To stop the video from repeating continuously, right-click on the video and click on the loop button.

How to autoplay YouTube videos via mobile app?

  1. Open the YouTube app and search for the video you want to play in a loop
  2. Click on the three dots in the top right corner
  3. From the drop-down menu choose loop

The video will play repeatedly until you turn off the feature.

Alternatively, if your YouTube version is old and the feature is not available, you can create a YouTube playlist and repeat your favorite single video several times.

How to autoplay YouTube videos with ListenOnRepeat is a good alternative if you want to try a different method of looping YouTube videos on a computer

ListenOnRepeat is a free website that allows you to listen to videos on repeat. Users only need to paste the URL of the video in the search bar, on any web browser from any device. To do it:

  1. Open the video you want to play on repeat.
  2. Select Share below the video, and choose Copy to save the URL to your clipboard.
  3. Then, open, paste the video's URL into the search box at the top of ListenOnRepeat, and press 'Enter'.
  4. The video should begin playing automatically. If the video doesn't start, scroll down to the Search results section and then select the video from the list.
  5. You can adjust the loop section so that ListenOnRepeat loops only a section of the video, or leave it at the default setting to repeat the entire video.

You can also search for YouTube videos in ListenOnRepeat's search bar, but you'll probably get better results on YouTube itself.
