YouTube now officially supporting 4K content | TweakTown.com

Although there aren't too many on the planet currently able to record or playback in the uber-huge 4K (reference resolution of 4096 x 3072) format, Youtube took a step into the future by officially announcing 4K support at the VidCon 2010 conference today. Game and video clip uploaders rejoiced when Youtube HD got going at the end of 2008, but HD had been out for a bit. Most people out there haven't even seen 4K at its native res due to the scarcity and huge cost. It makes my head hurt just thinking about the video card required to push a game in that format. But when 4K becomes standard for videos of guys falling off bikes and getting hit in the nether regions, YouTube is on the front lines and ready to rock. Just don't tell your broadband connection; it may burn up on you just at the thought.
