i have also not yet found a way to loop video files.. but you can loop an image (or image sequence)

i use this for some of my radio stations… ( -re -loop 1 -i /path/to/image.jpg )

ffmpeg -i http://shoutcasthost.com:8000 -re -loop 1 -i /path/to/image.jpg -c:a libfdk_aac -b:a 192k -c:v h264 -preset ultrafast -pix_fmt yuvj420p -bsf h264_mp4toannexb -f mpegts udp://
