I have a 20 minute video on my PS3 that I'd like to play repeatedly on a loop. I have sequential playback enabled.

How exactly can I get this video to loop?

    Is it stored on the Harddrive or is it a DVD /blu ray ?

  • On my computer's hard drive. I transferred the video to the PS3 with a USB drive.

  • What is the type of video file you are trying to loop? Will it play by itself?

To get a video to loop, start the video, hit the Triangle button and choose the option on the bottom row, Repeat (Looks like two arrows forming an ellipse). You should see the words Repeat On on the bottom left corner of the screen. The video will loop until you stop it.


In the menu system go to:

Video Settings > Sequential Playback on/off.

To have the unit repeat a video, turn Sequential playback on.

Then navigate to that folder where the video is stored and play it. ( It might have to be the only item in that folder to have it loop )

Note: This does not work for all video file types
