    I'm having trouble with 4K video playback from my Phantom 4 on my Mac Pro (system details listed below). Video playback in quicktime and FCP X stutters quite a bit. Files are transfered to my solid state drive. Any thoughts? Funny thing is, 4K video shot on my iPhone 6s Plus plays back perfectly. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Mac Pro 5,1
    2 x 2.4 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon
    12 GB RAM
    ATI Radeon HD 5770
    Solid State Drive

    Change your settings (in DJI Go) to save the video as mp4 instead of mov. I believe the iphone saves video as mp4 which would explain why that works.

    Let FCP optimize the media.

    You shouldn't have any issues. I shoot a lot of 4K video and playback is smooth in any format on my 2015 MBP with 16gb of ram and 1TB SSD

    Sorry for the newbie question... What is FCP?
