Starting today, video player giant YouTube has begun supporting 60-frames-per-second playback, a feature that will not only benefit the ridiculous amount of cat videos but also video game trailers and gameplay.
"Your video game footage with crazy high frame rates will soon look as awesome on YouTube as it does when you're playing, when we launch support for 48 and even 60 frames per second in the coming months," YouTube noted on its company blog
. The video giant has let loose a few example videos
to show off the buttery smooth playback, including Visceral's upcoming Battlefield: Hardline which you can check out below.
YouTube is planning to bring all sorts of other new features to its service including fan-funding options, the ability to easily check traffic analytics, tag one's colleagues in a "credits creator", and upload sound effect samples in an audio log.
