Importing 4K videos to iPhone SE Playback by downscaling 4k resolution to 640p

If you have downloaded the 4K videos from YouTube or other websites or recorded 4K footages by camera, you can watch them on iPhone SE by importing. But it is a pity that iPhone SE does not support 4K video resolution. No worries, you can find an easy way here.

The iPhone SE is Apple's return to the small phone market, packing 6S performance into a body the size of the 5S. It has the exact same screen as the one in the iPhone 5s. That means it still runs at a resolution of 1,136 x 640, which also means the math still works out to a pixel density of 326ppi (same as the iPhone 6s).

4K resolution is widely predicted to be the main development trend of video resolution, which is on the way to all of us. As you see, there are more and more cameras like Panasonic GH4, Blackmagic, Sony FDR-AX100, etc can shoot 4K video.
4K videos required to be play on at least 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096×2160 (17:9) resolution screen.
