    I'm not sure I fully understand what you are trying to achieve but have you looked into Tasker variables and flow control tasks?

    You could loop n times by having an action that sets the variable to n, then decrement it each time the video runs and have an if condition to test the variable value before the video is run.

    Thank you very much! I'm sorry that it took me such a long time to get back to you but your help is very appreciated.

    I'll have to look into how variables work but I think this will help in that regard: Tasker: Flow Control
    If I can figure it out it could very well solve my current problems!

    This is what I've come up with so far (if anyone else need to do something similar):
    1) Variable Set
    Name %COUNT To 0
    2) Open File
    File DCIM/100MEDIA/VIDEO.3gp
    3) Wait
    MS 0 Seconds 5 Minutes 0 Hours 0 *
    4) Variable Add
    Name %COUNT Value 1
    5) Goto
    Type Action Number Number 2
    If %COUNT < 2
    6) Open File
    File DCIM/100MEDIA/IMG.jpg

    *(NB: The Wait command is 2 seconds longer than the video. This seems to work the best).

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
