How to Make YouTube Play a Video Repeatedly

How to make youtube video play repeatedly?

If you use youtube to listen to music a lot, sometimes you want to listen to just one song repeatedly. Here's how.

The easiest way is just to click the “Add to” button. The button is right below the video. That will add the video to a queue, shown at the bottom of window. Then, at the bottom, click on the video to play it there. And there's a repeat button on the right.

Alternative Method

Following is a altenative way, but does not always work.

Suppose the url is this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxx

After the v=, there should be 11 random characters, that's the video's ID. Anything after that you can ignore.

Then, change the url to this:

http://www.youtube.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx&loop=1

That's it.
