There are a number of reasons why you might want to loop the playback of a DVD, including for background information at presentations or ambient music playback. Some DVD players have an auto-loop function, while almost all computer-based DVD players have loop functions. Setting the DVD player to loop playback is a relatively straightforward process. But models of DVD players vary, so consult your owner's manual to see if your player is capable of playing loops.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • DVD player (PC-based or independent unit)
  • DVD player remote control (optional)

    PC-based Playback

  1. 1

    Insert the DVD into the tray in the PC's DVD player.

  2. 2

    Wait for the computer to recognise the DVD, bringing up a play menu.

  3. 3

    Select "Windows Media Player" to open that program for playback.

  4. 4

    Select "play" from the menu on the top of the player.

  5. 5

    Select "repeat" or press "Ctrl+T" for looped playback.

    Stand-alone Playback

  1. 1

    Insert the DVD into the tray on the player.

  2. 2

    Once the DVD loads, select "play" from either the console or the remote control.

  3. 3

    After the video begins, press the "loop" button on the remote control or console. The loop button may look like an arrow bent into a circle.

Tips and warnings

  • Pressing the "loop" button on a console or PC may begin looping only the clip that is currently playing. You may have to press the loop button twice to get the player to loop the entire video.
