Vimeo now lets you download 4K videos from its service, for both Vimeo Pro members and Video On Demand providers. The company explains it's still waiting for the technology, to make this technology work, as most people don't have 4K displays at home, yet. The bigger hurdle, are the Internet connections not being fast enough for you to stream 4K video.

This is why the company is now letting you download the videos, but not stream them just yet. It's better than nothing though, right?
