It is easy enough to watch our background videos on an Apple TV by placing them in iTunes. However the Apple TV does not have a loop option, so here is how to get around it. This will allow you to play a video continuously for as long as you wish. For rather static videos like aquariums and fireplaces looping is essential to achieve a continuous and seamless playback experience.
Step 1 – Adding the video to iTunes
On your computer click on iTunes.
Then under File at the top of your screen select Add To Library
Locate the video file and double click. This will add it to iTunes.
Step 2 – Preparing the video to be looped
Find the video in iTunes by clicking on Movies (or Films), then List.
Right click on the video, then select Get Info.
Click on the Options tab.
Next to Media Kind select Music Video.
Click OK, then wait for a short while.
Step 3 – Looping the video
On the left side of iTunes find Music Videos and click on it.
Double click on the video to play it.
Find Controls at the top of your screen and click on it.
Hover over Repeat, then select One.
Step 4 – Playing the video on your TV through Apple TV
In iTunes at the top, next to the volume control you will see a rectangle with a triangle at the bottom.
Click on this icon, then select Apple TV
The video will now play on your TV screen through the Apple TV.
