If so, is there a device that will allow my to play raw, full 4k videos without compromise on the market (outside of using a Laptop)?"

Reasons & Methods

Most 4K TVs do not support 4k video over USB/SD port input. You should check the manual for your TV first, it lists the supported containers, codecs and frame rates available to be played back over the USB port.

  • If your TV only goes up to 1080p/60, so you’d better going to have to convert your files to 1080p/60 or some variation.
  • If there is no USB 3.0, only 2.0, which is disappointing.
  • If your TV has a HDMI port, then you could copy all of your videos into a slim large external harddrive or your laptop(with HDMI). Then plug that into the TVs HDMI port and play directly. That will get around USB stuff.

Though MP4 is listed as Samsung TV supported video format on Samsung official website, Samsung TVs are particular about what audio and video codec inside in the MP4 video container. Samsung TV only supports playing MP4 in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec and AAC audio codec. Samsung TV MP4 issues are also affected by MP4 video resolution, frame rate, bitrates and etc. Besides, .mov is filename extension for QuickTime multimedia file format which developed by Apple, it is not strange that your Samsung TV can’t recognize all of them. To solve those problem, you can try the solutions below.

  • More and more 4k TVs are set currently to include a high efficiency video codec (HEVC) also known as H.265 for streaming UHD content via the Smart TV interface. You could transcode DJI Mavic Pro 4k MP4,MOV(MPEG-4 AVC / H.264)video to H.264/H.264 codec to get smooth playback.
