Well, if the 4K movies are downloaded ones, you should make sure the 4K movie format is compatible with your Windows 10 PC/Phones/Tablets at first. To guarantee the compatible video format for Windows 10 playback, you can check the user manual of your devices first. If the format is supported, stream the video directly and play it via the built-in video player. If not, download a 4K video player or convert 4K movies to Windows 10 playable format for video transferring then go ahead to play it.
First, try a top 4K video player app
Media Player Classic is a popular, stripped down version of the much bulkier Windows Media Player. It is a very lightweight piece of software that is free, and has no toolbars or ads packaged with it. Although you play a large sized video, Media Player Classic can load it in a moment. Take a simple click, it’s super easy to play 4K videos in full screen mode.
Important Note: Installing Media Player Classic on its own does not yet provide 4K playback capabilities. The key is to also install the K-Lite Codec Pack. What’s more, it can be installed on Windows only. For Mac users, it won’t work at all.
