Hi,
the latest versions of VLC are able to play with no issues 4k contents, you can get the nightly builds directly from here: http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/android-armv7/

Otherwise the new version MX Player Pro v1.7.31 supports now the K1 natively but it crash often, I tested it.

As far as I see some video are played directly smoothly with the built-in player.
my Devices...
BlackBerry Z30 / Sharp Aquos Zeta SH-04F / Sony Ultra Z
BlackBerry PlayBook / Nexus 7 / iPad 4

it plays 4k video but does it display in 4k? i have a sieki 65 4k tv and when i connect my shield tablet to the TV it says 1080p 60hz when i press display button on my tv, this is outside of any video player. I know it can play the some samsung 4k sample clips i have but its not true 4k since it crops some of the video.
