YouTube announced at VidCon and then on their official blog that they’ll be supporting 48fps and 60fps video uploads soon.
YouTube has posted a handful of preview videos to show off the new tech, including the Battlefield: Hardline trailer above. YouTube will also be supporting 48fps videos, as seen in this trailer for VGHS Season 2:
While I understand the need for 60fps video uploads for gaming content, I’m less enthused about seeing high framerates in live action footage, where I find high framerates distractingly sharp.
Are there compelling reasons for high framerate footage? Please let me know in the comments. (I’m genuinely curious.)
