YouTube Adds “2160p 4K” Option To Video Quality Settings
YouTube adds in some new video options that allow users to watch some clips in 2160p.
2160p is an alternative name for 4K UHD ( Ultra-high-definition), a resolution planned to appear in future UHDTV products.
If a video that”s been uploaded to the site supports either 4096×2160 or 3840×2160, the menu now shows the new 2160p 4K setting at the very top.
There”s also a 1440p setting that”s been added as a menu option, perhaps to give users a way to go beyond the typical 1080p display.
More and more televisions are coming out that support the higher resolution.
The new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console both support 4K videos, although 4K games are still a ways away.
