It's been a long time since I did it, and I don't have a mac to test on, but I 
recall that there are settings you can make to the file, then save, which solve 
this. The 'full' paid quicktime player could make and save the changes to the 
.mov file in the GUI, but you could also do everything through scripting. Maybe 
just set the file to loop automatically so that quicktime does the work for you. 
There was also an option to buffer some frames. It was certainly possible to 
loop smoothly.

Sorry I can't add more detail here, but I don't use OSX much any more.
