YouTube now supports 8K videos – not that your computer can play them yet.
The ad-supported VOD service has been upping its tech game of late, in an attempt to fend off rivals such as Twitch and Vimeo. 3D support was introduced a long time ago and now 360-degree videos and 60fps live streams are also possible.
This week, though, the first video has been uploaded to the site in 8K – a resolution with high pixels that nobody can actually watch it.
Some shots [were] simply scaled up by 125% from 6.1K to meet the 7.6K standard,” adds the video description.
