5 min. film clip looping on DVD

I have a 5 minute instructional film clip on how to Lawn Bowl that I would like to make into a continious looping one. I would like it to loop over and over as much as 50 or more times. I welcome your advice as to how to do this.
Thanking you in advance.

If that is on a PC, run it as screensaver. That will never end. Here is how to do that:

In Windows 7 you have to go via Windows Live Photo Gallery. If you do not have it yet on your system, download it from Windows Live Essentials http://download.live.com/?wa=wsignin1.0

Then do the following steps:

Open Live Essentials Photo Gallery
Click on File
Click on > Screen Saver Settings (This will open the Screen Saver Settings)
Browse to your folder with the video and open it (OK)
In the Use this theme list box, select Album
Then do Save
Now run Preview and see whether it works

Remind you that the video format must be .wmv. If you have another format, convert it with Format factory http://www.formatoz.com/

And here is my 3 minute video how to convert with Format Factory.

You can use Windows live movie maker and keep adding the same clip till you have enough to fill the DVD, Then save movie, burn DVD.

If this is a clip you are burning onto a DVD for playback in a DVD player, then in your authoring program you would set the End Action of the Timeline to Repeat.
