How to Free Convert 4K and HD Video on Windows 10 for Easy Playback

Have you recorded breathtaking videos or lovely family moments through your DJI or GoPro cameras, but now you are facing problems playing them? You aren’t the only one. Most of us have to go through choppy 4K videos where audio/video is out of sync; playback quality gets blurry, audio or video won’t play, frame drops or file gets corrupted.

However, why does this happen? The 4K HEVC files are large and high definition. Firstly, they take a lot of your storage space, and their high definition quality causes lag in your devices. Here is a simple example – 60 seconds of 4K HEVC @60fps will require 400MB on your iPhone 11/Pro/Max/XS. In this scenario, if you take 100 minutes of video at the same rate, your 64GB iPhone/Android Phone will run out of spaces. However, 60 seconds of 1080p HEVC at 60fps (MP4) only takes up 90MB on iPhone/Android Phones.
