You know that YouTube is the best source of entertainment, but sometimes you might want to watch videos over and over again. You can repeat YouTube videos manually by clicking the replay button or pressing “r,” but what if you want a more automated way to do this? In this article, we’ll show you how to repeat YouTube videos automatically using Chrome extensions, apps, and more.
How to Repeat YouTube Videos Automatically
There are several ways to repeat YouTube videos.
- Download the video and play it back on your computer. This is the most basic way of repeating a video, but several drawbacks exist. It requires downloading the video file, which can take up a lot of space on your computer and can be inconvenient if you’re not connected to WiFi or don’t have enough storage space.
- Use an app that automates playing back YouTube videos in a loop (like Auto-Repeat). Apps will automatically download and play back videos, making it easy to watch hours of content without doing any work yourself! However, depending on what kind of device you use to access these apps and how fast your internet connection is, they may not run smoothly.
Download the video
- Download the video. YouTube video downloaders are apps that can help you save a copy of any video you want to keep. Many apps let you download YouTube videos in MP4 format, which will work on most devices and computers.
- Use a browser extension or bookmarklet to automatically play the video after it’s downloaded. This is particularly useful if your computer can’t handle playing videos natively—for example, if it doesn’t have any sound output or uses an old version of Flash (which isn’t supported anymore).
Use an app to automate YouTube playback.
You can easily repeat a YouTube video and don’t need to download the video.
Use an app like autoPlay for YouTube to automate YouTube playback. It’s free to use and automatically lets you loop any YouTube playlist or channel. You can even set it up so that your videos play on a schedule—so if you have a playlist of gaming videos that you watch every night after dinner, then this is the app for you!
Download the video and use a screen recorder
If you have a video that you want to share with your viewers, but it’s too long to share as a whole, there are ways that you can break it up into several parts. You can either do this by sharing the whole video and providing an annotation that tells viewers how much time is left in each section (for example, “Part 1 of 3”) or if your channel has enough subscribers who don’t mind waiting for each part to be uploaded individually.
If you choose the latter option, make sure you use a screen recorders program like OBS Studio or QuickTime Player Pro so that all your videos will still look professional, even when broken into smaller chunks. This method works well if there isn’t much action in any given scene; otherwise, it becomes hard to capture everything while staying focused on what matters most—and we know how important details are!
Automatically play YouTube videos with Chrome extensions
You can also use the YouTube Repeat extension. This relatively new extension lets you automatically play YouTube videos and skip them if necessary. You can watch videos automatically on repeat or listen to them in an endless loop.
It’s not perfect, though: the extension only works with Chrome and doesn’t work for all videos yet (you will get an error message if this is the case). It also doesn’t work in Incognito mode, so if you want it to be hidden from your browser history, then don’t use this option!
