I have been using PC my whole life and I've recently decided to get a LG/Samsung 4k TV. Most of the content I plan to watch is from my PC hard drive, mostly in .mkv or .mp4.
What do you guys believe to be the best way to play the files from PC on the TV? (I'd also prefer to be able to see the subtitles which are in .srt format)
And if the files are in 720p/1080p, would the TV convert/improve the video quality?
Thank you in advance!

You could get the latest Chromecast with 4K support and stream wireless from your PC to the TV. But you might get problem with too high bitrates(only 4K video) on a slow wifi connection. And the chrome apps for streaming files are not the best.
Or connect your PC directly to your TV with a long HDMI cable. If your PC has HDMI output then (with audio also).
The TV will upscale video to the TV's native resolution. Since most UHD TVs have a very large large screen, defects in the video will be more visible if you are sitting close enough. The TV can't really improve the quality of the video, even if there are settings designed to enhance various things.
