Replayer supports the YouTube video format and can be used as a simple YouTube looper application. Replayer enables you to permanently loop a YouTube video, or part of it.

How to create a YouTube video loop
In this example, you learn how to create a loop with the video shown above.
- Copy the full YouTube URL (Credit: Telefunken)
- Navigate to https://web.replayer.app
- Paste the URL into the URL field in Replayer and click the "Use" button. This creates a new track with this YouTube video.
- Click once on the loop toggle button to activate the "Loop Track" loop mode
- Hit the green "Play" button
- To loop in full screen mode, click the "Full Screen" icon on the video canvas (lower right corner)
Done. Your Video now runs full-screen, in an infinite loop.
Partial loop and annotation
By editing the track, you can further annotate it, and create cues.
- To loop only part of the track:
- create a beginning and ending cue
- select the beginning cue
- choose the "Loop Cue" loop mode
Fading at the loop boundaries
By default, Replayer adds a minimal fade-in and fade-out to play/pause events. With YouTube video, this also includes a partial fade-to-black. You can control the fading behaviour:
- In the Settings, you can define global fade-in and fade-out durations (or none)
- The fade-in duration can be compensated with a pre-roll (on by default)
- For each track, you can toggle fading with the fading toggle button.
For music practice, you most probably want to disable fading for loops.
