Can I play 4k footage from laptop to tv?

So, I got my Hero 4 Black and I did a bit of recording in a local forest with some jumps and whatnot, and on my computer (not 4k) it looks a tad grainy and not 4k quality. I was recording at max settings, 4k and 24 fps, is it? But if I render my footage to 4k and save it to a folder on my computer and I just hookup an HDMI cable to my TV (4k compatibale cable and TV), will 4k footage be displayed on my TV when I play the video off my laptop? I have read around online and apparently using USBs and 4k TVs is not a fun time, some sort of problem where the TV doesnt recognize it. Maybe not the correct forum to post in but Id like to know if anyone knows!

Re: Can I play 4k footage from laptop to tv?

If your graphic card is able to handle 4k resolution (think it is), it will be true 4k on TV. I know, it's trendy, but 4k sux and it's pretty useless, more cons than pros. And if u think, it will be like those awesome videos u see on showrooms...no...it's more bout oversatured PP ;-)
