“Hi I have a SONY BRAVIA XBR 49X850B (4K) Looks like I have the same issue here. NETFLIX UHD plays fine no problem. But can’t play MP4 or MOV from my Phantom 4 …..Help please!”
“I have a Samsung 55 inch curved 4k TV. This thing blows me away. Anyway there is no USB 3.0 which is disappointing, only 2.0. How I play back 4k video from the my DJI Inspire 4.”
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.
