YouTube features an 8K video but YOU CAN’T WATCH IT

We are now getting into era where 720p and 1080p will be counted as low video qualities. And by word ‘High Definition’, we will be referring to 2K, 4K, 6K and even 8K videos. 2K and 4K video are getting common nowadays. However, the equipment to shoot 8K video is still not widespread. Moreover, the displays required to watch 8K quality are also not common. The popular video-sharing site YouTube added the support for 8K videos back in 2010.

The first 8K video clip on YouTube has been uploaded recently. It tells how much difficult it is to record an 8K video. The clip termed ‘Ghost Towns’ is a journey in an abandoned mining settlement. As per description of the video, it has been recorded using a Red Epic Dragon 6K camera in portrait orientation. The quality has been upscaled with Adobe After Effects suite.

Here is the footage that can be run in every possible YouTube mode including 8K. Only few users will be able to watch it in 8K quality as it requires a large amount of system resources.
