4.1GB Download?
It's a movie. What kind of movie is a 4.1GB download? (I mean this in a serious way. Please inform me). Even the 1080p version from the Humble Bundle is only 2.3GB. Is this a special format that differs from the Humble Bundle format?

It includes Sountrack and bunch of bonus videos.

Uh, most of them, actually.

To answer your actual question: The Steam version includes audio commentary by Team Meat and a few other goodies.

Has a bunch of extra video and content periphery to the movie itself.

Oh, thanks! I really wasn't sure because the Humble Bundle version in 1080p was only 2.3GB.

Having looked inside the app bundle, the video file itself is 3.5gb on the steam version, so it's probably in a higher bit rate.

Could it be much asking for someone to list exactly what extras are included in the steam version, and a brief description? Are they worth it?
I also got the Humble Bundle version, and I really need to consider if downloading 4.1 GB (steam) vs only 1.3 GB (humble bundle 720p version), mainly because of my crappy connection (barely 1 mbps), so 4.1 for a movie an a few extras sounds like a lot.
Are those extras really worth it?
Is there a way to get only the extras from steam and not the 3.5gb move file?

In fact there are many movies over 4.1 gb I can think of, Dark night Rises, The Titanic, and many others!

In fact there are many movies under 4.1 gb I can think of, Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, Jurassic Park III, and many others!

You're talking about videos in standard definition or HD resolutions with video bitrates so low that they look worse than standard definition. Any modern properly encoded high quality HD movie easily crosses 4 GB, heck Dark Knight in 1080p itself takes over 10GB, that too compressed. There's a reason HD movies are sold on 25-50GB Bluray discs and why it's such a big deal that there are so many ways of encoding them to fit onto DVDs, to the videophile this makes a huge visual difference. No need to get all snarky about it.

As has been mentioned earlier, the video bitrate is almost certainly higher in the Steam version than the one on the Humble Bundle servers, so if you want the best quality possible go for the Steam version which also comes with a nice menu and tonnes of video extras about the making of the documentary and various other indie games (short but sweet, didn't check out all of them yet), commentary track by Team Meat and loads of subs along with a pretty cool player.
