It has been unveiled this week by the YouTube Creators Twitter feed that users of the YouTube service will soon be able to watch movies and videos offering support for both YouTube 60fps and 48 frames per second.
The addition of the new supported YouTube frame rates will help anyone that posts action footage of console or PC video games. As many of the next-generation games consoles such as Sony’s PlayStation 4 or Microsoft’s Xbox One, as well as many PC systems run games at more than the current 24 frames per second frame rate that YouTube videos support.
So if you enjoy watching gameplay footage via YouTube you can expect the quality and enhancement of the videos to increase massively as soon as Google rolls out the YouTube 60fps support. To make sure you benefit from the higher YouTube 60fps you will need to make sure that you view YouTube videos at the higher 1080p resolution.
A new YouTube Creator Studio app has also been launched this week and is now live for Android and will be launching on iOS device in the “coming weeks” says Google.
YouTube has also made available 7500 royalty free sound effects and background music tracks for creators to use free of charge, all of which are now available to use. Jump over to the YouTube audio library to start using them in your video creations.
Unfortunately no information has been announced as to when the YouTube 60fps support will be officially made available on the video streaming site, but as soon as more information becomes available we will keep you updated as always.
