So I have a smart tv and it displays pictures and videos fine via screen mirroring except 4k videos that the phone takes. I understand I dont have a 4k tv but the phone doesnt either. Is there a way to show 4k videos on tv?

You just answered your own question. You don't have a 4k television, so obviously you can't mirror 4k on the TV...

Is there a way to show the videos? Yeah, just not in 4K. You can get a HDMI cable for smartphones that support it. Amazon and eBay have them for cheap. I got one for around $10.

So you don't have a 4K TV but you're complaining about your 1080P TV not displaying 4K?

The OP is not complaining about anything! I really wish people would read the question and if they have nothing helpful to add then not bother replying!

The question was simple, the phone can happily play a 4k video on its 1080p screen (It is not a 4k screen!) However when MIRRORING the 4k video will not play. The screen being mirrored is a 1080p screen so as such the video being played (despite it being a 4k video) is also being shown on the phone at 1080p yet it will not play. You are mirroring the screen not streaming the video in its native resolution. My view would also be that it should just mirror the screen without issue.

Can you provide a little more info;

Are you definitely mirroring the screen? Can you see your Launcher, an actual copy of your phones screen? My guess is that you are probably just sending files over individually which will probably not work.
If you are definitely mirroring, are you doing so wirelessly or over a cable etc...
