I have a movie file that I want to loop thousands of times. It's a one-second background loop behind a podcast.

I tried stretching the video strip past the end of the content, but it just produces a still image of the final frame when I do that.

Work Fine 2.79 https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Sequencer/Loop_Media

"Pick a Scene, Image, or Movie strip in the Video Sequence Editor, and use the Strip menu to find the Loop Media operator. A speed effect strip will be created to accomplish the looping effect"

Excelent Script

Or you can make your strip with ffmpeg like this (for 1 minute):

ffmpeg -stream_loop -1 -i movie.mp4 -t 1:00.00 looped_movie.mp4

An use the strip looped_movie.mp4 in Blender VSE
