Why use Instagram loop video tool

Infinite GIFs - or ‘loop videos’ as they’re better known - are one of the most exciting and hilarious ways to enjoy a video you have created.

If you’re not quite sure what a loop video is, you might be more familiar with the term ‘Boomerang’, as this was one of the first apps to bring infinite GIFs to the masses via Instagram.

A video loop simply consists of a one-second section of a clip that repeats over and over in the form of a slightly longer video file. The idea is kind of similar to the once super popular Vine app, which allowed users to create 6 second video clips on loop. However there are no audio attached to loop videos, and the part which is repeated can be as short or long as you like.
