Best VR360 video resolution to play smooth on Oculus Quest 2

Hi all,
I try to put some 360 video created with an Insta 360 ONE X2 in 5,7K on a Pano2VR virtual tour and then play them with a VR Tourviewer (licensed version) on Oculus Quest 2.
While the tour is working well, the video aren't smooth, and there are drop frames sometimes.
Quest 2 can handle 8k 60fps 360video without any troubles. So the problem still on Pano2VR set-ups? Or I have to edit or reframe the 360 video?...
Can someone tell me the best 360 video quality format and settings to play VR Tourviewer on Quest 2?
I have to realize an installation with 5 VR headset for a small museum in my town, with some virtual tour and immersive 360 video too, and the quality of these video are important...
Please help, Thanks a lot!

The next update of VR Tourviewer will include an optimization of the video player, to support videos with a higher resolution and higher bitrate. 8K video should then be possible, and your 5.7K video will also play smoother then.

If you want I can give you access to the Beta version of VR Tourviewer, just send me the email address of your Oculus account (in an email to info@vrtourviewer.com) so I can add you to the Beta channel of the app. The Beta version with this fix will be available in about 2 weeks.
