YouTube has started a collection of 4K videos(4,096 x 3,072), which is 4 times Full HD. This size video is ideally made to be viewed on a 25 foot screen. So if you have a superfast broadband download speed and can live with a huge down-scaling for your display, then you can try and stream from here - http://bit.ly/bQ3z7b

With my 15mbps connection, I cannot stream the video without it being extremely choppy. :(

I think YouTube is a great resource and tool. I use it daily. However they should focus on other projects instead of something most people cannot use to it's full potential.

For example, they started having live streams. Make sure that is up and working and that the servers can handle it before starting another major project. Just seems like a waste of time to me.

The only time I could see this being used, is at a presentation. Maybe Google will use this 4K the next time they unveil something. Just my two cents.

I've watched some 4K videos on YouTube, but it skips some frames... Don't know why because my PC is almost brand new...

No, the best I can do is 2160p (plus 50% wider), as I run in 5760x2160. Or at least I will by the end of the day, as two more monitor stands are coming in today.

My internet can handle it without a problem but my 3 year old PC cannot play them back smoothly.
