Whether you want to use your iPad to loop video content for a work or college presentation, or just fancy sitting at home, laid back, watching the same clip over and over again, you're going to need to download an app. Apple, as of February 2013, hadn't yet had the foresight to add video looping capabilities to its ubiquitous tablet device. Fortunately, various app developers have stepped in to fill the gap.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Tap on the "App store" icon on the home screen of your iPad and search for apps such as LoopVideoPlayer, Video-Loop and VideoLoop Player. Choose one you like the look of, and follow the instructions to download your software. All of these apps are paid-for, so you'll need to link a debit or credit card to your Apple account before downloading any of them if you haven't already done so.

  2. 2

    Open your software and read through its user guide or visit its publisher's support pages for precise instructions on how to use your new app. Then set up a video to test your iPad's new video-looping capabilities.

  3. 3

    Connect your iPad to an external display or projector using an Apple composite AV cable if you need your looping video for a presentation. If you don't have the required lead, you can pick one up from Apple's website. As with most things Apple, expect to pay considerably more than you would for a standard AV cable. As of February 2013, an Apple composite AV cable would have set you back £30.
