Editor’s Note: Some guys recommend third-party 4K video player apps like MX Video Player for Android, however it can’t be an ultimate solution for all 4K videos. It lags on some formats such as H.265, MXF, XAVC, etc., in which most HD and UHD videos shot by professional cameras come out. And after testing, we found it is difficult to find a player combines optimum quality video playback options with a host of video formats.
