With its huge collection of music videos, general videos, and a vast range of other content, Vimeo is a popularly used video hosting and sharing site. So in many situations, you would want to loop your favorite video or any creative file on Vimeo to play Vimeo video on loop. The Vimeo video player does not feature any built-in option that allows you to loop or repeat Vimeo video but thankfully there are simple workarounds that make it work. The steps for the same are as below.
Method 1. Change the URL
Step 1: On your browser window, open the Vimeo video that you want to loop.
Step 2: At the address bar, you now simply need to change the video URL to repeat the file. The changes required are as follows:
- Player- to be included at the starting of the URL
- /video/- to be included after video.com
- ?amp;loop-1 – to be added at the end of the URL
So if the original URL looks like https://vimeo.com/112412666, the new changed URL will be like - player.vimeo.com/video/112412666?amp;loop=1.
With the changed URL, the video will now play repeatedly till you close the tab or choose to pause it. This method works on a computer as well as on a mobile phone.
Note: It needs to be remembered that this method will only work if the owner of the video must have the video embedding option enabled.
Method 2: Use Videore
Another simple way to repeat Vimeo video is by replacing the work Vimeo to videore in the address bar. This method will simply play the desired video repeatedly. So for instance, if the Vimeo video URL that you want to loop is: vimeo.com/147035764. You simply need to replace the Vimeo word and the new URL will look like: videore.com/147035764
Using the Videore method you can even limit the duration of the video, choose to wait between the repetition, and also limit the repetitions. Not only Vimeo, but this method also works for YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion as well as any online video in MP4, OGV, and WebM format.
