Compared to other common videos, there are some differences for 4K files in four main aspects.

4K resolution: Different 4K devices and usage scenarios require different resolutions. 3840*2160 pixels is the most popular resolution for playing on 4K TVs. The second one 4096*2160 pixels resolution is used for shooting videos in digital cameras. And 3840*1632 pixels is used in cinema.
