You’ve probably seen video loops on so many live streams that you don’t even give them a second thought. Here are some common loop examples:
- Pre-Roll Loops: These video loops play before a live stream begins to give viewers a chance to settle in.
- Live Radio/Podcast: These loops provide viewers with something of visual interest when people/subjects aren’t on screen.
- Animation Scene Loops: These are looping animation scenes, frequently used on lo-fi music channels and other music broadcast channels.
