I got my original file from a DJI Phantom 4 Pro, the files will be used for general viewing of the video taken from 4K. The file is too big to play on most computers. To play and edit DJI Phantom 4 Pro 4K o n PC, I need do some preparations.
1. Install 4K Video Player
The first workflow I set up is to find and install a 4K video player. From the list of top 5 4K video player
, I tried VLC, but the result let me down. The DJI 4K don't play on VLC. I think I need a quick alternative solution.
2. Convert and dowmscale DJI 4K to 1080p
Since most computers, media players and video editing software like Avid Media Composer
, Sony Vegas Pro
, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro can't work the 4K MP4 or MOV files from Phantom 4 Pro, we could try a third-party software to downscale DJI Phantom 4 Pro 4K footage to 1080p. By some guys recommendation, I used Brorsoft Video Converter
. It's a professional 4k video converter app.
