Yeah, I still do this because it's fun. However, I've changed the way I go about it so I can get ultra precise loops.

There are only two tools required to do this, mpv media player and FFmpeg. And yes, we will have to go to the scary command line to make this work correctly. When you want precise loops, that's what you have to do.
