    I'm still bewildered that dji phantom 4k drone video is incompatible with many Samsung and Sony 4k tvs. Can't someone update their firmware to get on the same codec page, either h264 or 265? Right now I have to use a converter to translate 265 to 264 that my samsung can play. How about those streaming tv boxes? Can they help? I'd like to just stick my sd card in something and watch 2.7 or 4k video.

    A lot, possibly all, TVs will only play mp4 files. If I save mine as mov files they won't play. If I save them or recode them as mp4s, they play fine.
