5KPlayer, a mixture of free (MKV) HD video player, music player, DLNA & AirPlay enabled media streamer and online downloader. 

In the late 1990s, broadcast television began broadcasting in High-Definition. This was a revolutionary move for video and viewing at home. Today, we have UHD, or Ultra High-Definition, which displays 4K video. While the format is still in its infancy, a lot of streaming services are providing 4K content. So, what if you want to play UHD video on your computer. 5KPlayer is the best 4K HD video player available for both Mac and Windows operating systems.

5KPlayer is the world’s first UHD video and audio player. The app provides extensive file support and will play 4K, HD, 3D videos, DVD and radio. Plus, the video player will play MKV, MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV video files. What really makes this video player unique is that it supports AirPlay streaming technology. It ensures that people can easily stream videos or music from iOS devices to the Mac wirelessly and even mirror content to AirPlay-enabled devices like an Apple TV.


Feature include: 

  • Being capable of playing 4k/UHD/ 360-degree video, music, DVD, live radio, etc. Almost all formats supported. 
  • Stream video music between DLNA compatible devices. From Android to PC/Mac, from computer to Android/Smart TV/PS4/Xbox.

These features make 5KPlayer a natural alternative to VLC. In addition to 5K Player also has a video converter built-in to the app. It will convert online videos to MP3 or AAC music format or to the H264 video format. All in all, I was very impressed with 5K Player when I started using I wasn’t sure what to expect. If you are looking for a solid piece of software that will play 4K video, I would recommend giving 5k Player. It’s a free download for Mac.
