OS X 10.9.3 with Enhanced Support for 4K Displays

Previously, many 4K displays cannot work properly on Mac OS X. It is hard to reach the original resolution 3840x2160. Even if we set it to the original forcedly, the text, image and video will be barely distinguishable. But that problem has gone away as OS X 10.9.3 has improved 4K display support on the late 2013 Mac Pro and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. It improves the size and readability of text and other on-screen elements. Thanks to this update, playing 4K UHD videos on Mac OS X 10.9.3 becomes possible.

4K Ultra HD (also known as 4K UHD) is a resolution of 3840 pixels x 2160 lines (8.3 megapixels, aspect ratio 16:9) mainly for Ultra HD television, or a resolution of 4096 pixels x 2160 lines (4,000 pixels, 8.8 megapixels, aspect ratio 17:9) mainly for digital cinema. At 4K resolution, every single details and close-ups on the image can be seen. Nowadays, 4K videos are adopted by UHDTV and YouTube. Since OS X 10.9.3 can support for 4K displays, is it possible to play 4K Ultra HD videos on Mac OS X 10.9.3?

Ways to Play 4K UHD Videos on Mac (macOS Catalina)

In this post, two methods will be shared with you to play 4K ultra high definition videos on OS X 10.9.3.

Solution 1: Use 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs with Mac computers

In Apple's support page, you can find detailed supported displays, configurations and adjusting tips to make 4K displays work well with MacBook Pro (Retina, Late2013) or Mac Pro (Late 2013) based on OS X 10.9.3 or later, like Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

According to the official statement, OS X 10.9.3 is only for Sharp PN-K321, ASUS PQ 321Q, Dell UP2414Q, Dell UP3214Q and Panasonic TC-L65WT600. Viewing experience couldn't be better with 4K resolution. But it is really costly for ordinary people and unnecessary for non-professionals. Moreover, some 4K videos (downloaded from online video-sharing center, YouTube maybe, or generated by 4K-capable digital cameras or camcorders) could be incompatible with Mac. In that case, the second solution could be the best way to play 4K UHD videos on Mac OS X 10.9.3.
