Go to Exercise page


HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- Define document type as HTML -->
<html><!-- Begin HTML document -->
<head><!-- Start of document header -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Define character encoding -->
<title>How to specify that the video will start over again, every time it is finished</title><!-- Title of the HTML page -->
</head><!-- End of document header -->
<body><!-- Start of document body -->
<video width="300" height="250" controls loop><!-- Video element with specified width, height, controls, and loop attributes -->
<source src="https://www.w3resource.com/html-css-exercise/basic/solution/php-demo1.mp4" type="video/mp4"><!-- Source of the video in MP4 format -->
<source src="https://www.w3resource.com/html-css-exercise/basic/solution/php-demo1.ogg" type="video/ogg"><!-- Source of the video in OGG format -->
</video><!-- End of video element -->
</body><!-- End of document body -->
</html><!-- End of HTML document -->


  • The HTML code defines a video element using the <video> tag.
  • The width attribute is set to 300 pixels and the height attribute is set to 250 pixels, specifying the dimensions of the video player.
  • The controls attribute is included to display video controls, allowing users to interact with the video playback.
  • The loop attribute is included to specify that the video should start over again from the beginning every time it reaches the end.
  • Within the <video> tag, <source> tags are used to specify different video formats (MP4 and OGG) using the src attribute and the corresponding MIME type using the type attribute.
  • This code creates a video player that starts over again automatically every time it finishes playing.
