Tips to play 4K video on Windows 10

- Even if Windows 10 supports 4K, you still need a 4K screen, which has high enough pixels.
- If you play 4K video in full screen on Windows 10 PC with 1080p resolution, you will only see a quarter of the image or your PC will automatically zooms out from 4K to 1080p, which means that you will play the 4K video on Windows 10, however, in 1080p resolution.

Best free 4K video players for Windows 10

1. 5K Player

 

5KPlayer is a relatively new but powerful 4K video player. Like VLC, it is completely free and clean and safe to use. Any malicious stuff is excluded. It has full compatibility with Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, and lower, and Mac edition can also run perfectly on new macOS Sierra and previous operating systems like OS X 10.11. With this UHD player, you can play (4096x2160, 3840x2160) 4K 60fps, 48fps or 30fps video at any format (e.g. MKV) without choppy or other problems.

 

2. VLC Player

 

As the free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework that plays most multimedia files as well as DVDs, Audio CDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols, VLC also adds support for 4K video playback since an update in 2013. However, the 4K video playback effect on VLC is not that satisfactory. A lot of VLC users complain that they suffer VLC 4K video playback choppy or lagging issues.

 

3. KMPlayer

 

The KMPlayer at first only serves for Windows users. But in April, 2016, a Mac alpha version was released for Mac users with OS X 10.6 or later operating system. It supports for a wide range of file formats and can play videos in superb quality, including 4K UHD. According to the description in its official site, the PC edition only works on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7(32bit). If you need a 4K video player for Windows 10, 8.1 or 7, you'd better choose another program, such as 5KPlayer.

 

4. Media Player Classic and K-Lite Codec Pack

 

Media Player Classic, also known as MPC, is an open source free media player, mimicking the look and feel of Windows Media Player 6.4. As a matter of fact, MPC on its own cannot play 4K UHD videos. It needs the help from K-Lite Codec Pack. To make things easier, you are suggested to download K-Lite Codec Pack full package which covers Media Player Classic. Despite that it can work on even the oldest computers, you still need a more powerful system to perform 4K playback.

 

MPC is also a 100% clean 4K UHD media player. No advertisements, no toolbars. You may feel relieved the use greatly.

DivX Player is the first of its kind, award-winning software offering free HEVC playback, including Ultra HD (4K), a must-have for those who appreciate high-quality video.
