How to Loop or Repeat Certain Part or Individual Video Chapters on YouTube

Certain YouTube videos have several chapters to offer their users. These chapters give their viewers more chances to enjoy their content. It is also another way to generate more views and followers. If you love a video, don’t you want to watch it again and again?

Many people enjoy repeating or looping a single video they love. Even if it repeats several times, they do not get bored or have enough of it. Watching videos on repeat is also a way to memorize the lines of the characters, get a good grasp of the guitar riff you’re learning, and appreciate other small details that you may have missed out on previously.

But, hitting the play button over and over again each time you want to rewatch a video can be taxing. Fortunately, YouTube got you covered.

Now, you can loop individual video chapters on YouTube. You do not need to hit the play button every time the video ends or hit the seek button to get to the part where you want to be repeated. Looping will repeat the video without you doing anything.

The Loop feature on the YouTube Chapters menu is available on mobile and desktop apps as well as the web version of the streaming platform. You can expect to use it immediately whether you are on your mobile device or computer.
