How to put a YouTube video on repeat in Chrome

Learn how to replay a favorite song or cute [insert animal here] video you can't stop watching.

YouTurn is a simple and lightweight extension for Google's Chrome browser that will let you add the repeat function to any YouTube video. 

The extension adds a small icon in your omnibar which allows the feature to be toggled on and off.

Step 1: Open your Chrome browser and head to the extension page for YouTurn in the Chrome Web Store.

Step 2: Click the blue Add to Chrome button in the top right-hand corner. Then, click the Install button on the pop-up that follows.

Step 3: Locate your favorite video on YouTube. Try this video (turn your volume down if you're at work/value your sanity) as a starting place.

Step 4: The small gray circle that appears in the right-hand side of the omnibar is the YouTurn extension ready for use; click it to turn repeat on.

Step 5: Enjoy your video, again and again. To turn it off, just click the gray circle again.

Maybe in the future this extension will also repeat a playlist on YouTube, so you could listen to an entire album's worth of songs over and over.

While it could be an excellent way to get sick of your favorite song, it's also a fast way to become someone else's least-favorite person. We recommend using with caution for your sanity and the sanity of those around you. What do you think: love it or hate it?
