    And what are the issues on a 4K video on your Windows?



  • My adsl is limited to 7mbit, so I can watch max 720p videos without problems;
    I can select in that video up to 1440p60 and it plays, even tho with some hiccups due to buffering. Selecting 2160p60 for me it's just an semi-infinite buffering, like 10 seconds buffering for 1 second play, but I can see it's actually playing. Of course you need both large bandwidth and a more than capable CPU/GPU combo to decode such monster videos.
