    4K videos on Youtube?

    http://youtube-global.blogspot.com/2010 ... comes.html

    Anybody have a powerful enough computer/good enough internet to play it properly? For me, it plays at about 1 FPS, lol.

    I wish they made the lower resolutions run better before doing this, though. 4K is pretty pointless if people can't even play the 1080p videos properly.

    at times near 10fps, then others goes to 4~ xD Looks like Skype can now enjoy youtube making use of his monitors.

    Edit: Yep just as I thought, unless you're playing it on a bigass monitor, or on a load of them. you won't really see any difference compared to 1080p. Except that the latter runs much faster : P Still, awesome how technology advances.

    No difference for me from 1080p except it stopped buffering at one point, pretty sure I'd need a wall sized monitor to notice the difference, pointless, but cool feature.

    I've yet to see any difference from 1080p, but it's probably just that shitty 1280x1024 monitor I have to use right now. My computer and my internet can run 4k pretty well too.

    A wall sized monitor would be pretty cool.

    I can't even really play 1080p without lagging.
