YouTube announced today it's adding two new features in the near future that will benefit both viewers and content creators: the ability have 60 frames per second video playback and upload options.
First I will talk about framerate. Support for both 48FPS content and 60FPS content will enable movie trailers and even gameplay footage to be viewed with much higher clarity. Early examples of 60FPS and 48FPS footage can be found here
, but there is also one of the example videos below.
Watching the Titanfall gameplay below, it has an obvious jump in quality and fluidity compared to a traditional 30FPS recordings.
The options made available by this upgrade in youtube's performance is undoubtedly a good thing, many content creators and viewers have been asking for this. Perhaps with this move there will also be an opportunity to highlight to certain people (ahem, console devs, ahem) that 60FPS is superior to 30.
This is undoubtedly a good thing, more options are always welcome, but what do you guys think of it? Do you see the much improvement? As always please post your thoughts and feelings below.
