Play it on the Sony using the Vimeo app.
I like the true depth, they are better than the original sony.
You should try the oakley rocketfish also
Guys ...we need to calm down and rationalize for a moment.
You know me, I am the first to rush out and buy new stuff!!
Not so fast.
The new sets have active 3d. I still love passive.
The new sets will be priced just as high as our old set. Will the PQ be much better?...maybe 5% better.
despite Sony's announcements on an myriad of new tv's, there is still NO 4K CONTENT, apart from a few movies and a few you tube video clips.
The only 4k content i have seen on Netflix is "el fuente", a bunch of Mexicans running around in a food market.
Hdmi 2 is a joke. How many of us use 60 fps? I can't even do this with a titan pc video card! How many of us have purchased a new Radeon video card capable of running games at 60fps? Maybe 2 people on this planet?
So we need to calm down. When true 4k content is available, we can discuss which tv and media player to buy.
Until then, let's be happy with what we have.
I believe that when real 4k content will be available instead of 1080, we probably won't even buy a Sony again, because other brands will have great 4k tv's at half the cost. Vizio for example.
It seems that my concerns about the 65x900A being discond soon are proving true, inevitable of course, although availability of the A series should continue for a while from Sony and elsewhere.
If you want to sell your 65x900A recent vintage with the media player compatibility upgrade , like right away and reasonably discounted to the boat anchor it is, to get ready for your 900B, PM me with an offer, and we can discuss.
I don't necessarily agree with all of points 4 and 5 above. I think there will be manufacturers building content delivery devices, and 900A series owners will have more options than Sony only, or even HEVC. Consider, from Digital Digest:
A new 4K format war is brewing between the Google backed, and open source VP9 codec and the official successor to the industry standard H.264 codec, HEVC.
HEVC, or H.265, has already been selected by Netflix to deliver its 4K based content and is seen as the natural successor to the ubiquitous H.264 codec. However, both H.264 and H.265's unclear royalty situation has meant that its use has met with resistance amongst the open-source software community, particularly in relation to H.264's use within HTML5.
Google sought to offer an alternative solution when it released its WebM video format, but it did little to settle the divide between the two sides, mostly due to the format's lack of hardware partners.
And now, Google has initiated the next round in the codec wars by signalling their intention to use their VP9 codec to deliver 4K content on YouTube. This time though, Google has brought in the heavy guns in support, with LG, Panasonic and Sony set to demonstrate YouTube Ultra HD clips at their CES 2014 booths.
An impressive list of partners for VP9 also includes the likes of ARM, Intel, Mozilla, Nvidia, Philips, Qualcomm, Realtek Semiconductor, Samsung, Sharp and Toshiba.
Despite the public backing of VP9, YouTube has not ruled out supporting HEVC for its Ultra HD videos. "We are not announcing that we will not support HEVC," said Francisco Varela, YouTube’s global head of platform partnerships.
Both VP9 and HEVC will offer almost twice the efficiency of H.264, currently used for YouTube HD videos and Blu-ray, thus allowing 4K Ultra HD streams to be transmitted without requiring four times the bandwidth of HD streams."
Personally, as to point 4, I do agree and think that Apple certainly will be very involved in 4K distribution options fairly soon, apparently recent iPads may be HEVC compliant, but I think their devices and others will have some added decoding in them, maybe more than one type even, at least until this burgeoning wave of 4K expands over the next few years, so exactly how 4k content will come to the 900A Series and from whom, is far from decided. But, the 'A' displays can do it, the inputs can carry it, and the options may be greater over the next couple of years than they seem today. Then again, I'm an optimist. :-)
But, you will need to dump the 'A's to get the nifty 'B' stands, so there's that to consider, too...
