Play 4K Video on Android Using Free 4K Video Player

Yes, 4K UltraHD video is coming to Android this year, according to Qualcomm. Despite that there’s a hot debate on whether 4K video capture and playback is really necessary, Qualcomm has already well prepared to bring this impressive spec to Android devices together with the upcoming Snapdragon 800 chip. That’s to say, Qualcomm believes there will be a broad market prospect and many people would love to capture and play 4K video using their mobile devices.

However, will those people be willing to purchase a new device simply for the purpose of playing videos? A device shipped with 4K specs will definitely cost lot! Personally speaking, I would not prefer to do so. In fact, if you just want to play 4K videos on Android, just like me, you can easily achieve the goal by using 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. Thus, if you want to freely enjoy 4K videos on Android using MX Video Player without format limitations, you have one more thing to do: to convert video to MX Player accepted formats like MP4.
