It must be something legal or something for them to omit such an obviously useful button for so long right?

They could save so much space by including one, currently i have to watch the 10 hour version of the pikachu song rather than the normal one with a replay button :rolleyes:

Do you use internet explorer? That has the functionality to browse the web.

does it always save to cache in every browser? Maybe it's a bandwidth saving issue in their eyes.

They already have a horrible time keeping up with bandwidth. Could you imagine if millions of users left it on repeat even while doing other things or forgot about it? It doesn't seem that they cache it because it redoes the progress bar each time.

I think it's lame too and they need to just cache the video. Probably something to do with copyrights, streaming reasons, and not wanting the video to be able to be downloaded. Basically they only want the video to be played on youtube and not saved. If they had a repeat button it'd kill all the servers and bandwidth.
