According to Qualcomm’s press release, it is coming to enable 4K displays on devices as well as the ability to drive Ultra HD content on an external display over a wireless connection. 4K video is becoming the new hi-end standard for superior picture quality on your android device, but you may not want to cost much for just purchasing a new device supported 4K specs. Then can we freely play 4K qualtiy video on any android device without limitation?
Most 4K movies are recorded in MXF/XAVC/XAVC-S format, to get this high end footage from your 4K camera device to your android device, the best way to find a suitable media player and professional 4K Video Converter, hold on reading.
The Step One: Use a free 4K video player for Android.
For this, MX Video Player for Android is your ideal choice. It is a free video player that supports almost every video file format as well as subtitle files such as MKV subtitle track, .srt, .sub, .ass, .mpl, .psb etc. MX Player is the first Android video player which supports multi-core decoding. And with the help of the new H/W decoder, its hardware acceleration feature can be applied to more videos, which also enables itself to support 4K video playback (though sometime the 4K video playback will be a little stumble).
Although there are quite a few video players available for Android users but MX Video Player simply has the edge when it comes to finding a player that combines optimum quality video playback options with a host of video formats. However, it does not actually support all video formats. It lags on some formats such as MTS, MXF, XAVC, etc., in which most HD and UHD videos shot by professional cameras come out.
The Step Two: Convert Video to MX Player accepted video format.
To enjoy 4K Video on Android using MX Video Player with no lag, You have one more thing to do: to convert video to MX Player accepted formats like MP4 format. Fortunately, I find third-party 4K Video Converter Ultimate can help convert any video to MX Player while keeping 100% the original 4K video quality. It converts videos ultra fast and supports batch conversion for saving time. The Mac version is 4K Video Converter for Mac.
Now follow the guide below to learn how to convert 4K Video to MX Player playable videos for watching on Android device.
1. Download and install Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate to your PC.
2. Drag and drop 4K videos to the main interface for converting.
3. Click “Format” and select an output profile for your Android device. There are optimized presets for Samsung, Amazon Kindle, Google Nexus, Asus Transformer, Acer, Archos and more. Basically the Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4) is an universal format for Android tablets and smartphones.
Optimize the settings – The default settings may not satisfy you, and you can click the settings button to change the settings by yourself. Keep in mind that the file size and conversion quality is based more on bitrate than resolution (bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa). According to my experience, for watching videos on an Android phone or tablet, 720p with 1500~3000kbps (depends on what device you use) is just all right.
4. If you’re happy with the output videos, just press the “Convert” button to begin encoding 4K footage to MP4.
Once the format compatibility problems have been solved, you can transfer the converted videos to your Android tablet or phone for viewing on the move using the free 4K video player — MX Video Player. Have fun!
Not an Android user? Converter also supports “common” video formats like MOV, M4V, MP4 and has presets for all the models of iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple TV, so you should be able to create files compatible with your iOS basd devices, as well as BlackBerry PlayBook, Windows RT/8 devices and HP TouchPad.
