i looked for quite a while to find a solution for looping a video in ffmpeg. the only thing i could really come up with was to convert the input movie into an image sequence and using

-re -loop 1 -pattern_type glob -i '/path/to/images/*.jpg' 

but this would be for the video stream only, no audio. i am kind of amazed there isnt support for looping a video in ffmpeg. (feature request!)

eventually i ended up just using a scheduler and a 'loop' function on streaming servers (wowza)
