Are you wondering how you can replay or auto-play Pinterest videos?
Apart from pinning images on Pinterest, users can also pin videos shot themselves or downloaded from other platforms like TikTok or YouTube.
On Pinterest, you can only post a video that has a maximum length of 15 minutes, with a maximum size of 2GB.
That is why the videos you mostly see as pins on Pinterest are usually short and straight to the point, and you can always replay or auto-play them as much as you want, you just need to enable the settings.
The settings or feature for auto-playing and replaying any video on Pinterest is not available to just anyone on the platform, you need to meet a few criteria.
In this guide, you will learn how to replay Pinterest videos and how to auto-play any video pin on Pinterest and more.
How to Replay Pinterest Videos
There are two ways you can play a video on Pinterest, the first one can be done manually, and the other is done automatically (auto-play).
When it comes to replaying a video on Pinterest it is quite easy, you only need to make sure that you are using the newest version of the Pinterest app on your device.
This will allow you to get the settings that you to replay videos.
Here is how to manually replay videos on Pinterest:
1. Update the Pinterest app
The first step to replaying a video on Pinterest is to update your app to the latest available version.
Pinterest always rolls out a new version of their app every week, so there is usually a new update.
To do this, go to the App or Google Play Store on your device, and search for the term: “Pinterest” using the search bar.
From the search results, select the official Pinterest app, and tap on “Update” to install the latest version on your device.
2. Go to the video you want to replay
Now after installing the newest version of the Pinterest app on your device, you need to open the app and go to the video, any video.
To do this, launch the Pinterest app, log into your account if you are asked to; tap on any video on the explore page.

Any time you tap on the “Watch again” after a video finishes, the video will replay, and that is how to manually replay videos on Pinterest.
