YouTube Can Now Play Videos At A Buttery 60 Frames Per Second

After years of capping video playback during 30 frames per second, it looks like YouTube is finally upping a bar.

Back in June, YouTube announced that 60 FPS video playback was on a approach in “the entrance months”. Alas, a usually examples of this to cocktail adult given were a handful of EA diversion trailers that YouTube handpicked to showcase a new, ultra-slick framerate.

Sometime in a past few hours, however, it seems a hurl out started swelling distant and wide. A good series of user uploaded videos shot during 60 FPS are now personification behind during their correct framerate, rather than being sliced down to a comparatively corpulent 30 FPS.

It might not work in all browsers (if all else fails, try Chrome. Safari also seems to work. And make certain you’re regulating a HTML5 Player, nonetheless many people will be on that by default by now) — though when it works, it’s gloriously obvious.

See, for example, this video of someone personification Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 (as spotted by Kotaku). Bump a peculiarity adult to during slightest 720p, and let a frames inundate your eyeballs:

(On a side note: holy crap that man is a savage during Mario Kart)

Videos formerly shot during 60 FPS though uploaded before today, however, still seem to be personification during a comparison framerate.

We’ve reached out to YouTube to find out only how widespread this hurl out is (Can all users upload during 60 FPS now, or only many some-more than before?), and either or not they devise to re-process any of a aged things uploaded before they done a switch. Given a absurd volume of video that YouTube has backlogged, however, we wouldn’t bank on most of that aged things removing a ascent treatment.

Update: YouTube has reliable to us that this is, in fact, rolling out to users and betrothed “more sum soon”, though wouldn’t contend some-more only yet.
