How to Loop Video Footage at Demonstrations

Playing video footage of cruelty to animals during demonstrations can be a great way to inform passersby about what’s really going on inside the industries that abuse animals.

Here’s how you can loop the footage so that you have to press “Play” only once.

With an Internet Connection

The easiest way to loop videos if you have an Internet connection is by going to Paste the YouTube link into the search box, and your video will play on loop!

You can even loop just a certain section of the video by using the scrolling timeline right below the video.

Without an Internet Connection

Oftentimes, you won’t have an Internet connection at demonstrations, so you’ll have to download the video to your device.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
