VLC is a free and open-source media player for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. VLC plays media files or playlists once by default, and then stops. If you want to play a video on repeat or listen to a song over and over, you can set up VLC to play continuously. VLC contains options that can repeat a single media file or an entire playlist in its preferences window. You can also enable continuous play temporarily by using a button on the VLC toolbar.
