How to Play 4K Video to Samsung Galaxy S4?

We always get 4K video in AVCHD, XAVC, MXF, FLV and MP4 formats from 4K cameras or web, such as Sony PMW-F55, F5, Gopro Hero 3, Canon C500, and Youtube etc. The 4K video is four times as many pixels as the 1080P Full HD videos and thus is much sharper and clearer in image quality.

Although Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best Android Smartphone, it still can only play 1080P videos smoothly. You can try to play 4K video on Galaxy S4, but there will be some troubles, such as only got the sounds, not image; not supported formats etc.

Note: MX Player is a third-party video player of Google which is the only Android app that's said to support 4K playback with the help of new H/W decoder. However, MX Player can't supports some video formats, such as .flv, .wmv, .xavc, etc.

Solutions: You can convert the unaccepted 4K video to MX Player supported video formats or convert/downscale 4K to 1080P MP4 for alternative since there will not be any distinct difference between 4K and 1080P while playing on a 5-inch screen.

4K Video Converter can help you convert 4K AVCHD, MXF, XAVC, MP4, FLV, WMV etc video files to MP4, 1080P MP4, AVI, etc common video formats for importing 4K Video to Samsung Galaxy S4 for playback directly or to MX Player for playing.
