YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

They've been supporting 4K streaming for a while now so it inevitable that 60p streaming was bound to happen at some point. This is awesome news.

That's fantastic news ... also love the bit about a 'tip jar' ... more ways to make income with youtube than ever I guess. Can't go wrong with donations on top of youtube payouts if you're a popular channel.

Re: YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

This is a good step forward. I would use 48fps before 60fps just ensure decent playback for a wider audience.

Now, if they can add resolution settings that stay for your video, like Vimeo, I will like uploading stuff to YouTube a little more. I can't stand how it defaults to 480p or 360p. You know a lot of people never change this setting. I know there is an auto feature, but I find the videos stay a lower resolutions even with a fast internet connection.

Re: YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

This will finally put the hardware encoders in the new Nvidia cards to proper use, as I'm sure as with the examples that the primary use is gaming.

We still don't have content pipelines good enough to deliver 60p in a standardized way. AVCHD 2.0 is not acceptable. I hope XAVC will change that perception.

Don't forget that Flash is a CPU hog, so the only way you can really experience 60p is to download the video and use a media player like MPC-HC or VLC.

Re: YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

What about PAL 50fps?
What about tearing, stuttering playback in browser with i7 cpu?
What about uploading videos without recompress by youtube?
(just define encoding parameters exactly, and youtube don't need any
computing power for re-encoding..)
At lower bitrates ripbot264 for example can do much better quality than YT.

It's Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It works on Chrome and Internet Explorer. Doesn't work on Firefox yet but I hear it's being worked on.

Just watched two of the three demo videos. Can't see what the fuss is about.

Re: YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

Firefox relies on Flash by default. The requirement is H.264 capable HTML5 to view 60p.

You're not out of luck though. The command line utility youtube-dl can see the 60p streams. It will show up as format #298 for 720p and #299 for 1080p. Just rename the file extension to .mp4 after downloading and any modern MPEG-DASH capable player can play the stream. You'll have to download the DASH audio separately and mux in FFMPEG to a proper .mp4.

Re: YouTube will be streaming in 60p soon

Here's a quick sample video I did.


From what I see, 59.94 does work at least in my example and it does not work for 2160p videos yet when you look at the settings of my video.Basically you only see 2160p and not 2160p60.
