Looping 360 Videos

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to get perfectly looping 360 videos and have the problem that i get a small hick when the movie ends and restarts.
my movies dont use audio, the resolution is 4096 x 2048
and i was playing with constant / variable bitrates, keyframe distance, and the frame rate to reduce the hick...

i was thinking...
- the smaller the file the better
- a lower frame rate is probably better
- the device/browser plays a role (chrome better than safari)

i reduced the hick a bit, but its still there...

does anybody has ideas how to improve / fix this?

maybe krpano video settings?
would it help to preload the video somehow?

best, index

from my tests ..
360 videos with 2048 x 1024 will loop without hick

medium resolutions, for example
360 videos with 4096 x 2048 CAN'T loop without hick

i'd really need a tip for improving this
