Youtube now supports 4K video at 60 FPS






It seems it wasn’t long ago that Youtube offered videos with resolutions of 1080p. However now Youtube is now making it possible to upload and play videos that reach UltraHD resolution, also known (though erroneously) as 4K, and 3840 x 2160 pixels.

The popular video hosting site has enabled support for video at 60 FPS, however this mode only supports FullHD resolutions or less, that is until now. Google always the innovator has now activated 60 FPS in all resolutions, including UltraHD resolution, so anyone with a monitor with at least 60 Hz can enjoy more fluid playback of online videos.

Thenextweb is reporting that the effects are incredible and stunning, but that’s not all, “movement appears far smoother than at more common frame rates of 24fps and 30fps. Play either video below, click the gear icon and choose the high-resolution, high frame rate stream option.”

We chose to show you guys one of many videos that are already available at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. But it must be stressed in order to play this kind of content with that resolution and FPS requires additional hardware to be able to do it smoothly.
