I wonder who compromised with the 4K, apple or google
It must have been Apple.
I’m surprised too. its probably going to be doing a software level decoding which means that little A10X is going to be working hard good thing Apple put a fan in it.Pleasant surprise about the 4K. My understanding was the only the A12 and faster were capable of decoding AV1 4K video. The codec is very intense and (unless there's a new work around) doesn't utilize any of the hardware decoders in Apple's current chips much less the aging A10X. Regardless, if this is true for the old model it is a welcome upgrade!
I wonder if bluetooth reliability will improve along with sharing? My AppleTV 4K has a much much worse range than either my iPhone or iPad.
Does 4K YouTube playback mean that Apple now supports the VP9 codec?
They are the same size.Did anyone else notice a smaller HomePod next to the larger current HomePod during the HomeKit presentation Or am i just seeing things?!
That’s YouTube’s horrible interface everywhere. They even implement their own @#$@#!% keyboard for account logins which doesn’t support using your phone to type! AAAAAHI suppose fixing YouTube's horrible TvOS interface isn't on the table...
4K currently not showing up in tvOS 14. Must require an update on YouTube's side first. But this is huge, and easily the biggest news for AppleTV. Let's hope this carries over to iPad and Safari as well.
I'm not sure. YouTube uses the VP9 video codec for 4k, which Apple doesn't use, so I'm not certain what has changed.
As EPO75, et al mentioned above, my money is on AV1, which is a newer standard that both Google and Apple have agreed on. Which, yes, would mean Google would have to boil the oceans to re-encode all of YouTube’s 4K videos.It must have been Apple. If Google caved, they would need to re-encode all their 4K videos to something the Apple TV supports.
What new feature would you want?
24fps is really 23.976 fps. 🤷🏻♂️
Has it? I stopped using Infuse (wasn't worth the rental fee IMO). Will it play 4k HDR AV1 on the AppleTV 4K? Stutter free?
No, it means AV1 which YouTube doesn't yet use but will do in the future.Does 4K YouTube playback mean that Apple now supports the VP9 codec?
