How to loop or repeat video in MPlayer GUI?

I know from the command line it's -loop, but I can't figure out a way to make the GUI version loop video. Any ideas?

Just add the file multiple times in the playlist

Might sound trivial, but works!!!

I was after the same feature. There is no button or option within the GUI that lets you do it, which kinda sucks. But I have a solution.

edit your ~/.mplayer/config file to include the following:


then, whenever you open files, they will automatically loop.

Hope that helps,

Hi, I'm new to this forum and I know that this thread is old. But since I came here with the same question I hope it still can be helpful to somebody. The following works for me:

In the file ~/.mplayer/input.conf I added this lines:

r loop 1
R loop -1

which does this: Pressing the key "r" loops the current file infinitely. Pressing "r" again loops it once, twice, three times.... Pressing "R" reduces the number of loops by one and finally switches off loop.
If your ~/.mplayer/config contains a line "loop=0" then pressing "r" results in 1 repeat and so on.

Of course any key binding can be used. If you use "r" make sure to change or disable the default binding for "r"
#r sub_pos -1 # move subtitles up

I did not find a way to simply toggle the loop state by one keybinding.
Hope this helps anyway.
