How to Loop Video on VLC Media Player



VLC Media Player has the ability to loop videos on various platforms. By looping videos, you can set multiple videos to play one after another in a continuous loop. Or you can just put a single video to play in a loop. 

Although this is not a new feature, but rather one that has been around for a while, it is still a very useful function to have. Let’s look at how you can set your video to loop on VLC Media Player in Windows and Mac.

  1. Create a Simple Loop

    – Run VLC Media Player on your Windows or Mac computer.

    – Open the video you want to loop. If you want to loop multiple videos, you have to add all the videos to the playlist.

    – With your videos ready, you can now press the ‘Loop’ button at the bottom of the screen. The ‘Loop’ button is represented by the two arrows completing a loop.

    • Tap the icon until you have the right setting between no loop, loop one or loop all. Your video or videos will continue to run in this loop until you stop the loop
  2. Loop a Specific Section in a Video
