Part 3: LG 4K TV playable Video Files

As a major TV manufacturer, LG is working hard toward being the leader in the 4K TV industry by providing a good number of impressive Ultra High Definition TVs. From LG 4K TV's official website, we get the information that LG 4K TV supports to play 4K video with HEVC or VP9 codec with a video frame rate of 60fps. And LG 4K TV compatible audio codec includes AC3, EAC3, HE-AAC, AAC, MP2, MP3, PCM, DTS, DTS-HD, DTS Express, WMA, RA.

Which format is 4K?

4K refers to a digital cinema standard that calls for a 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution. This is double both the horizontal and vertical measurements of the 1920 x 1080 standard (1080p, AKA Full HD) that most of us use today, offering four times the overall pixel resolution. So briefly if the video resolution reaches to 2160p, it's absolutely a 4K video no matter what formats the video is encapsulated in. In other words, 4K video formats are board. For example, MP4, MKV, MOV, AVI etc. all can be 4K file formats.

Part 4: Failed to Play your Movies on LG TV? Solved!

1. How to watch unsupported video files on LG TV?

When you transfer a video file to LG TV, you need to make sure the video format and the video codec are both supported by your TV-set. Take MP4 as an example.

LG TV only supports playing MP4 in H.264 / AVC, MPEG-4, H.263, MPEG-1/2, VC-1 video codec and AAC, AC3, DTS, MP3 audio codec. As MP4 is actually a container format, it will use different encodings for video and audio. In other words, LG TV MP4 issues are also affected by MP4 video codec, audio codec, etc.

If you videos can not be played on LG TV smoothly, it is essential for you to convert your video file to the video format with the video codec and audio codec supported by your model of LG TV as per your Manual.
