Fixing Problems with VLC When Playing 4K Videos

Let’s learn from the following article why VLC media player can’t play 4K/Ultra HD videos natively and how to solve the question. For the purpose of working VLC media player well, firstly, let me show you an example which is the main video format that can’t be accepted. As the example showed us:

‘I downloaded a 4K MPG video off YouTube with many video downloaders from I got from Firefox, every single program I tried will download the video like it suppose to, but when I play 4K video with VLC... there's no audio. I'm wondering if anyone else has this same problem and what’s the really workable solution to play 4K video in VLC?’

Hot Search: 4K to DNxHD MOV | Play 4K on TV | 4K XAVC to HDTV

For the VLC media player itself, sometimes there will be some stutters, not showing audios, etc issues. Well, don’t let it be your playback hurdle, here I would like to share some effective experience for you.

By the way, I have to admit that Media Player Classic is one of the methods which also has the capacity of making 4K videos possible on VLC media player. While on the other hand, it can be installed on Windows only. For Mac users, it won't work at all. You can have a try.

But if you got the Pavtube 4K to VLC Video Converter for Windows/Mac, both for Windows or Mac version, it can handle well. Let’ see how it work?

Download the program from the website, load your original 4K source in with ‘Add video’ directly drag files in is available. Next, on ‘Common Video’ list, you will get the ‘H.264 Video (*.mp4)’ as the best for VLC media player.

Any ways can compress 4K videos?
Surely in the ‘Settings’ button, you can adjust video and audio settings, including codec, bitrates, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channel. To down scale 4K to 1080p, do remember adjusting video size to 1920*1080. 

Especially for the latest Windows 10 and Mac OS X 10.10(Yosemite), it can work so well. After you get your preparation work done, don’t forget to click the ‘Convert’ button to start your conversion. Then just load them to VLC for a nice enjoyment on PC. Let’s do it!
