Following on from YouTube’s October introduction of 60 frame-per-second video playback, the online video-sharing platform has now implemented this advancement into its live streaming services. Despite only being available as an early preview on HTML5-compatible browsers, the inclusion of 60FPS playback will allow users to broadcast their online productions in real time. It is said that YouTube will begin encoding such streaming capabilities to both 720p60 and 1080p60 formats with a supportive function that will drop the FPS down to 30 for slower devices. YouTube is also expected to implement HTML5 playback that will allow users to rewind and fast forward live streams while remaining completely compatible with products such as Elgato Game Capture, XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster. Stay tuned to YouTube for more information on this update.
