This guide provides a walkthrough to help you play DJI Phantom MP4 video on Android tablet or phone with ease.
I have recorded Phantom video in MP4 format. I can play the download on the computer, but not on my Android tablet or phone, or Playstation. (MP4 video recorded on phone will play on all three devices.) How can I fix this? Is there something non-standard about the Phantom video MP4 format? Looking around for any decent tutorials and finally found a possible solution to playing DJI Phantom video on Android with ease.
Actually, Phantom videos recorded in your SD card are with higher resolution(4K) than those that cached in your device. Your mobile devices may not able to play videos with such high solution . Since MP4 format from Phantom should fit on your Android device, but the high resolution especially UHD 4K is not supported by your Android tablet or phone. What you can do is to downscale 4K to 1080p. Then it would be easy to play DJI Phantom 4K on Android table/phone.
There are thousands of video converters, such as Handbrake, Format Factory, but they can’t play a role of 4K video encoder. Here Brorsoft 4K Video Converter is highly recommended, which can provide the ultimate 4K viewing experience for everyone!
