    I want to make a video, and post it to facebook, where it loops over and over. How would i do this? Is it possible? i would imagine an avisynth script would work. Wouldn't it? I know there is a Loop () command. If someone would write the script, i'd appreciate it!

    You can convert your video into an animated gif that loops forever, but you wont have audio.

    You can loop a video with Avisynth, but you will need to tell it how many loops. Example to loop 5 times:

    Code:
    DirectShowSource("path\to\your.mp4")
    Loop(5)

    Facebook does not supported animated gif's thou Giphy url links work but it's specialized, normal url links to animated gif's will most likely be flattened to a single image via facebooks own code.

    Thanks for the help, guys. Unfortunately, facebook doesn't accept animated gifs. I made my video, and it's looping fine. Too bad i can't upload it to facebook. I have seen looped videos on facebook before, but they're probably from tv news, and somehow they managed to upload them.
