Resolution is 2560x1440, it's 33.5mb/s and it takes about 100-115% of CPU to run it, perfectly smoothly in quicktime X, though it's obviously using 1 core and some change.

Looks good.
That's 1440p, not 2560p. When you talk about resolution you use the vertical number.

Still, that's a large file size for not much time!

Just done the same - absolutely stunning. (just played it through QT though - might give VLC a bash, see if it's any different)

Looks Great!

I tried one from YouTube and it looked very crisp. It was easy to tell 1080p from the stunning 4K.

I just downloaded it in the original size and played it back in QuickTime because I didn't want to wait on Flash Player to encode it.

4K isn't available in the YouTube html5 trial, try leaving the trial and reloading the video, then select original quality.

2008 MacBook + 4k video = fail sound plays just fine, but there's no visuals - it's just a black video window

I guess that's to be expected when it stutters even playing 720p. Oh well. I'll have to check it again when I have my Retina

It is for TVs and such, 4k won't be mainstream for a good few years yet.
