I have a video recorded in 720p30fps which looks great when watching it on PC. Same video file opened on smartphone that recorded video and on my second phone (LG G4) video is pixelated with lesser FPS. How to fix that? Do I need some kind of codecs?

When transferring a video file to your phone, make sure to say NO when it asks you to convert it. I have encountered the same issue on my Xperia device. I used Windows to transfer a file and mistakenly accepted to convert my file, then it looked bad on the phone.

Additionally, use MX Player to watch videos on your phone. Use the following link to reach Play Store to obtain it:
