Xperia Z5 Premium Maximum 4K video playback bitrate supported

You know the Album app is the only app that supports native 4K video Playback on the Z5P, however, i´ve encountered an issue reproducing a Movie on 4K, the movie is on .mkv h.265 coded an it weights 50+GB, the phone just can´t handle it, the Album app will not play it nor any other media players out there, so i´m converting the video to mp4 h.264 but i´m not sure what´s the maximum bitrate supported by the phone so it won´t break, the convertion takes around 6 hours so i would like to get it right on the first try 


i can´t find this information anywhere


if you know it i would SOOOOO appreciate the info
