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?"
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 Video Converter for Mac, it can handle well.
