Best codec for Android VR Player

Sep 9, 2014 at 10:57 AM

I just bought VR Player for Android, using it on my Galaxy S3, and trying to play 360 video, like the one l found on this page :

The 450Mb mp4 video doesn't play, I get sound but only black screen. I tried reencoding it but can't seem to find a format that will make it play.

Could you point me in the right direction here ? Is there a video / audio codec combination that just works every time ? Do I have to be careful about anything else, like pixel aspect, video size, bitrate ?

Thanks a lot

PS : as someone else pointed out in another thread, I am also experiencing the weird black artefacts, in Sphere and Dome modes.
