Loop YouTube videos in your browser


As of posting this snippet YouTube as we all know does not offer to loop videos. It does not have any standard links or buttons on their player to do this.

There is an easy work around it. For that first you need to understand the structure of a YouTube link.

Please note the last ‘random characters’ – RwUGSYDKUxU. This is the video_code of your video.

The work around

The following is a syntax to play looped videos. Just replace ‘video_code’ with your video code.

http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/video_code&loop=1&autoplay=1

Which turns out to be:

http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/RwUGSYDKUxU&loop=1&autoplay=1

It will play the video in full screen and loop the video automatically. Thats it.
