It is a known fact that not all video files are created equal. Some file formats are made only for certain devices while some file formats require specific apps to play them. This is why you have a bad experience with your 4k/5k iMac than a PC with 1920*1080 ratio. The better solution in my opinion is to convert video from MKV to AVI as the output format because AVI file is compatible with many platforms.
