I've managed to loop a video, and it looks great in after effects, I used this tutorial video

I've then exported as an mp4. Which again, when imported back into after effects loops perfectly.

However when mp4 played back using vlc/windows media/potplayer - it either pauses, or blinks when restarting the loop. It may pause 3 times, then blink, then pause another 4 times, then blink.

Any tips ? Does reducing file size help or anything ? A different format, I just used the default media encoder settings for mp4.

  • What platform are you on? As in, what hardware will you play it back on?

  • @tomh Does it matter ? A vareity of different devices ... pc,laptop,ipad,phone Oct 23 '21 at 10:59
  • Seems to me that you’re asking which players will offer seamless playback of looped media. This will differ by application, platform and specs of the hardware, which is why I asked.

  • Take a look at this Q/A: video.stackexchange.com/q/15376/3908 and also search "seamless" in this stack.
