Start with straight up HTML5 <video> tag as your first test.

There have been many changes, especially on Mobile devices, related to looping videos over the years.

Best to ensure looping works on your target Mobile device as expected, before trying your custom player using a data-property attribute.

Tried this...nope!
It works for iPhone, iPad, and Android.
  1. Open the YouTube app on your device and navigate to the video you want to loop.
  2. Tap the screen to reveal the icon of three dots in the top-right corner, then tap the three dots to open the video menu. Tap the three-dot icon. ...
  3. In the pop-up, select Loop video.
