Breaking Youtube with Slow Mo Glitter - The Slow Mo Guys


Gav and Dan (and Smee) make a video that is incredibly difficult to watch by using glitter to absolutely annihilate modern video compression. In order to give you a fighting chance, this video is uploaded in 8K (4320p50) to increase the available bitrate. Don't watch if you are prone to seizures from flashing!

    I watched the whole thing in 4K even though I'm on a 1080p monitor. For videos like these, it actually increases the quality quite a bit, it surprises me, but I don't know a ton about upscaling and downscaling.
