Thread: YouTube Support 4K (4096x2304) Video Resolution

  1. Post YouTube Support 4K (4096x2304) Video Resolution

    YouTube added support for playing videos that are bigger than 1080p. At 4096 x 2304 pixels, 4K is over four times the size of 1080p. To view any video in a source resolution greater than 1080p, select "Original" in the video quality pulldown menu. Source

    Unfortunately my work computer is so lame it won't even play a YouTube video at 720p let alone 4K. I'm sure it looks very nice. I'm interested to know if anyone can tell the difference between 1080p and 4K on there computers. My work monitor resolution is set to 1280 x 1024 I would suspect that a lot of people will not get the benefit of the 4096 x 2304 resolution of the 4K footage.

    Don't get me wrong I'm not knocking it BUT I do think it's a bit of a gimmick at this point in time when YouTube should be working more on stability and reliability. Example it took me 3 attempts to upload my last video.

    YouTube announced this about 2 months ago.
