Please be sure to select 2160p 4K once the video starts from the cog/wheel settings icon in the bottom left of the sample video, if you have a 4K screen. You may need to let it load for a few seconds depending on your internet speed. We then recommend pressing the full screen button, you really need to watch this video on a 4K TV to really appreciate the superior quality, but you may notice the sharper detailing on smaller resolution screens.
4K Fireplace Video has a simple name because it is a milestone; our first Ultra HD 4K fireplace video. Filmed on one of the best low light cameras in the world, the video is absolutely stunning when it comes to resolution, detail and color reproduction. The resolution is 4 times higher than Full HD. The file size for the MP4 4K download is larger, hence the price jump, the Full HD version is just 1.1GB.
Why choose this 4K Fireplace Video?
The most obious reason to buy this 4K fireplace video is that it is 4 times bigger in resolution that a Full HD video! On a large 4K screen that makes a massive difference, especially as we filmed this real log fire with a superb low light camera. Which really captures the details of the flames and burning logs beautifully.
Our 4K virtual fireplace videos are encoded in the latest H.265 (HEVC) codec. This has allowed us to keep the files sizes similar to the Full HD versions (which use the older H.264 codec for older devices). The 4K videos are delivered as MP4 files still, but they do seem to be more compatible with more modern SMART TV manufacturers. They work on all the bih name UHD SMART TVs we tested from Sony, Samsung and Panasonic. However we have also had reports that the new H.265 videos are working on some smaller brands now like Vizio.

Please note: 4K videos cannot currently be played on all media players and devices. It will play on many computers by using Classic Windows Media Player or VLC (a superb free media player available for Windows and Mac OS X). If you play it on VLC you can select repeat and you will then have a looping 4k fireplace video.
If you have the means to stream your laptop or PC screen onto your 4K TV, you can also use this as a 4K fireplace video TV screensaver. This can apparently be done using the popular video player app Kodi (XMBC) using their playlist function.
The very large Ultra HD SMART TV sets are when you will really notice a difference in quality. The bigger the screen, the more that the footage needs to be stretched. The 4K version looks great even on the biggest UHD TV screens. Some people find 4K too realistic, for example when watching dramas. However for our videos that extra realism from the amazing crystal clear quality makes this almost as good as the real thing, especially if you have a surround sound system.
The screensavers are 4K or Full HD, 3 minutes, self looping apps, just like any other screensaver. As always you will be given long term access to the download/s.
