Youtube adding 60FPS support, Finally!

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.

Awesome, this looks way better than 30 fps. I hope there is a framerate option in the videos though, because 60 is harder to stream than 30.

Meh, i'd rather have a lower compression rate than 60fps but still 60fps is a good thing, it is about time they started supporting it.

I'm now just waiting for the 60FPS vs 30FPS videos. Hopefully it will set a few console devs straight.

This will also be good for uploading videos which demo the affects of G-Sync and Free Sync. Do you guys remember that Nvidia video from a few months back?

Finally. Means that no one should ever record at 30fps. Heck I don't think I ever have, even back in the days when my gts 450 and i3 550 couldn't muster 60 on most games :')

Awesome!

But, if I want to do slomo in the future I must cap in 120fps or something, which is a case of no-can-do at the moment. ^^

I'm so sick of that argument, they never want to let go of that "fact" for whatever reason.
