vcube max size / iPhone / iPad


I've been using krpano with vcube (cubestrip) with a dimensions:
preview: 320 x 1920
big: 1024 x 6144
mobile: 512 x 3072

This works great with the flash player, but I'm having troubles with iPhone, iPad, it says Error: loading of my....url.jpg failed!

My question is. what is a "normal" size of a vcube file, and why is it that the html5 player doesn't like my files. (is there a max size?)

You can not load an 6124 pixel wide image on iPad. Max of one side is much smaller depending on which system.
With the old iPads 5.0 it is just 1400 pixels.

You have to use cubefaces of 1024 or 512 pixels instead.

The preview works great, on both ipad 1, iphone 4 and that is 320 x 1920 pixels.

Is there somewhere I can find the maximum sizes the html5 player can take?
or is it more about filesize?

I guess I will just have to try increasing the size until it won't load.
But some more info would be great!

that's are iOS limits - too large single images or too large canvas images are not possible there.
And in older iOS versions the limits are even smaller.

That means you need to use the 6 cube images if you want to use large images.

Best regards,
