What is a Looped Video?

Before we learn how to loop a YouTube video, we need to understand what it means to have a video on loop. A looped video is one that is played again and again without ending or without any interruptions. It can even be done to an image, where it will be stuck in an endless cycle – this is known as GIF. A looped video can be helpful when you are playing music on repeat. Once you have a recording, you can put it on loop and play it on repeat. You can even have a video of images playing in a loop in the background of a screening event.
