So here we are going to discuss about how to playing any 4K videos on Microsoft Surface Pro without curbs.

Before we start, we have to make this clear – why not all 4k video can be played on Microsoft Surface Pro perfectly? One reason is the sources of 4k video could be anywhere, downloaded from the web, captured by Panasonic/Sony/Canon camcoders, shot by DJI drones, and more. The second reason could be the versatitlity of video format codec. For example, MP4 is one of the most common and widely used video formats, but people still can not play some of them, cause MP4 is a digital multimedia container format most commonly used to store video and audio, but is can be used to store other data such as subtitles and still image, different MP4 file could cover different video audio codec. So this is why you fail to play some of them on your portable devices.

To solve the problems above, one 4k video converter is necessary. Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate | for Mac (review) will be your best partner which could convert any 4k video for you to store on your Microsoft Surface Pro local storage space, or transfer to your Plex for watching on any devices which could install Plex app.

The resolution of Microsoft Surface Pro is less than 3080*2160, so playing the ture 4k video on this tablet may be jerky. To sucessfully play all ture 4k video on this tablet without any problem, you can adjust video/audio codec, frame rate, resolution, bit rate, channels to make the video more fit for your tab.

Step by Step to Convert 4K Video to Microsoft Surface Pro

Step 1: Load 4K video into the program.

Start the program on your computer, click "File" menu and select "Add Video/Audio" or "Add from folder" to import 4K video you want to convert. By the way, batch conversion is also available here.

Step 3: Keep/Compress 4k video for Microsoft Surface Pro

You can maintain 3840*2160 as output video resolution, or you can compress 4k to 2736 x 1824 which is the best video resolution for this tab. Or compress 4k to 1080p, just type 1920*1080 in Size blank. If you prefer smaller video size, lower the video bit rate can help you achieve this goal.

Output YouTube best uploading settings

Tutorials to Transcode H.265 to H.264 for Playback http://iappsnow.com/2018/03/transcode-h265-to-h264-for-playback/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=transcode-h265-to-h264-for-playback http://iappsnow.com/2018/03/transcode-h265-to-h264-for-playback/#comments Wed, 28 Mar 2018 08:26:19 +0000 http://iappsnow.com/?p=3541 Read More...

Difference between H.265 & H.264

h265 h264

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), aka H.265 is a video compression standard designed to substantially improve coding efficiency when compared to its precedent, the Advanced Video Coding (AVC), or H.264. It is the natural successor to H.264, and is now started to become adopted as a mainstream product with vendors manufacturing h 265 hevc encoder products as oppose to h 264 video streaming products.

x264 vs x265

HEVC the video compression standard ensures delivery of video quality identical, and in some cases with much more improved picture quality, as H.264 AVC, but an HEVC H.265 encoder offers double the data compression ratio, that is an improved efficiency of 50% over H.264.

With an increasing growth of video streaming on the Internet over popular websites such as Netflix and YouTube, and with 4K cameras gaining new ground in the market, HEVC will be widely used in the near future. But not now.

Majority of PCs, mobile devices, TVs, players and platforms work well with H264, while equivalent hardware or software for decoding HEVC (H265) is dramatically less common. So, to ensure a smooth H265 video playback on your smartphones or tablets or other devices, you’d better convert H265 to H264.

Encode H.265/HEVC to H.264

After figuring out the truth that most devices, media players could’t support HEVC playback so far and H.264 still dominates the market. What we can do is to convert HEVC to H.264 for play on most devices. There are tons of H.265/HEVC Decoder and Encoder on the internet, but it is not easy to get a perfect one. Here I strongly recommend you Pavtube Video Converter | for Mac which is easy to use and grants you to transcode H.265 to H.264 on Windows or Mac with just three steps.

Furthermore, you also can make your H.265 more attractive by editing the video. If you’re confused with the length of the video, you can trim to cut video length; you also can adjust video brightness, saturation, contrast to add dominant tone in the video. For those people who want to insert the external subtitle to the video and make it easier to understand, you are in the right place, in the "Video Editor" window, you will be satisfied.

Quick Guide to Convert H.265/HEVC to H.264 with Pavtube

Step 1: Load H.265 video files

Drag your files into this H.265 HEVC Video Converter, with "File"> ‘Add video’ you can load them with individual clips, or with ‘Add from folder’ you can import them with a complete folder. Batch conversion is also available.

load h265

Step 2: Convert your H.265 videos into H.264

Go to the format bar to choose "HD Video">"H.264 HD Video"(*.mp4)".

select h264

If you want to transcode H.264 to H.265, you can choose HD H.265 MP4 video or any other video formats.

Tips:

1. If you want to convert your H.265/HEVC videos into common formats like MP4, AVI, MKV, FLV, M4V, etc, click here for detailed workflow.

2. Since this codec will compress into smaller file size while maintain the HD quality, the converting progress will take much longer than H.264 or other common codecs.

3. "H.264 HD Video(*.mp4)" option will output your files as H.264 high profile, which will reduce the quality H.265/HEVC degradation to the least.

4. Or if you want to keep the most quality of your videos, keep the original parameters in the "Settings" UI is also available.

Edit H.265 HEVC video files – Optional

There are still some popular functional items we can take around on the main interface, for example, in the ‘Edit’ button, we have offered you the ‘Trim’ to decide the video length, ‘Crop’ to remove the unwanted edges, ‘Subtitles’ to add some extra explanations? More you can have a try here.

Step 3. Start H.265 to H.264 Conversion

Click Browse to specify a destination folder to save the converted video file. Hit "Convert" button to start to convert HEVC/H.265 to H.264/AVC on Windows or Mac with this high-class H.265 converter at lightning speed.

Even though H.265 is superior to H.264 based on demand, quality, size or compression rate, H.264 is much suitable for normal usage. By using Pavtube Video Converter to convert H.265 to H.264, you will have lots of options to watch videos and its time saving too.
