On every Christmas Eve I wished if Santa could gift me a technology or feature to auto replay videos on YouTube, so that I could enjoy my favourite songs and videos repeatedly without bothering myself to replay it manually. So today in this tutorial I am going to guide on “How to auto replay YouTube videos”.
The ways that I am going to suggest for this task largely depend on the Internet Browser that you are using.

Loopy is a handy script for Grease monkey. Once installed if allows you to repeat YouTube videos over and over again automatically. However please note that this add-on could be used only for Firefoz users.
Please follow below steps to auto replay youtube in Firefox browser:
1) Download and install GreaseMonkey add-on to your Firefox.
2) Restart Firefox once GreaseMonkey is installed.
3) Now Install Loopy from here.
4) Now open any YouTube video.
5) Once the video starts playing click on loop as shown in below picture.
6) Please note that “Loop” button would be initially gray / black in color. However once it is turned on, the color will change to red.
The video you play will be in loop until you turn of loopy or choose another song.
