If you filmed a video on Snapchat that you want to upload to Twitter, Instagram, or your IG Story, you might want to make it longer so that people can appreciate the effect. In this post, I’ll tell you how to create a new video of your Snap playing on repeat using free, online tools.

Why loop?

Snapchat videos are often really short – only 1-3 seconds – so it’s more fun when you play the moment on loop. Also, Instagram posts must be three seconds long at least, so if you want to post those beautiful selfie videos you’ll need to loop it first to extend the length.

How to loop your Snaps

Step 1: Save your Snap to your camera roll Find your Snap clip in your saved Snaps and export it. If you want to use your computer, you can email the file to yourself.

Step 3: Upload your video

Upload the video from your camera roll or from your computer.

Step 4: Select the number of loops

After the video loads, choose the number of times you want the video to loop or repeat. You can choose between two and ten loops. Click "Create" once you’ve set the number of loops.
