what can i do to get the bgaudio to loop indefinitely?

Answer: It looks like you are using tovid-0.31. It is suggested that you upgrade to current tovid which right now is tovid-0.33. In any case you have not supplied an argument to "-loop" which in your case should be "-loop 0". In a more recent version you would have gotten an error message about that, "-loop" without arguments is only for a GUI workaround and is not to be used on the command line: it passes "-loop inf" which means indefinite pause. Also, please use the official forum for questions/comments, not this help desk page which is not really used.
