Basic logic dictates that the only thing better than a video of a hamster eating a tiny burrito is a video of a hamster eating a tiny burrito over and over and over again. And now a new tool called ListenOnRepeat will allow you to watch your favorite YouTube videos forever. For-ev-errrr.

In all seriousness, though, this is a helpful tool for anyone who’s on a YouTube song binge, or trying to learn an entire Beyoncé dance routine, and who doesn’t want to be bothered with tabbing over to restart a clip or making an infinite playlist. 

All you need to do is replace the “youtube” part of a video’s URL with “listenonrepeat,” and it will automatically replay and replay and replay in a new tab. 

So the URL of the hamster video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utscyzHnRfY. To watch that video over and over again, you would just erase the YouTube part and enter “listenonrepeat,” to get https://www.listenonrepeat.com/watch?v=utscyzHnRfY

And, indeed, that link takes you to a hamster eating a tiny burrito, ad infinitum. 

In case you need those instructions repeated, here’s a video detailing the process. 

And if you didn’t quite catch it the second time around, here is that video on repeat. Feel free to watch it ’til the end of time.
