YouTube Now Supports 60fps Video

YouTube has been upgraded! You can now upload 60fps videos and watch them at 60fps once they are uploaded and ready to go. Youtube is answering the call of gamers that want to watch video game footage at the highest possible frame rate. You can also now ‘tip’ your favorite YouTube video makers as YouTube is getting on the fan funding bandwagon. You can read more about these two features and all others that were announced yesterday at VidCon on a blog post over at the YouTube Creator website.

Here is the Battlefield Hardline: Multiplayer Trailer that was uploaded at 60 FPS goodness. You’ll need to use a web browser like Google Chrome that supports HTML5 in order to get 60 FPS.

We tried out the Battlefield Hardline: Multiplayer Trailer and with FRAPS open we found the trailer pegged at 60 FPS on our office PC that has just Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics on our Ivy Bridge processor. You don’t need a big powerful discrete graphics card to get 60 FPS on 1080P Youtube videos.
