YouTube adds 4K support for livestreams

From today YouTube users will be able to stream standard and 360-degree video content in 4K. This could have huge significance for YouTube’s position in the live stream space.

Twitch servers typically limit streamers to a bandwidth of 3.5 Mbps (and a 4K stream can require more than double that). – Tom Regan, Engadget http://engt.co/2g76TfR
