http://www.theverge.com/2014/10/29/7121143/youtube-adds-support-for-60fps-video-playback

Back in late June there were some test vids that made use of the high frame rate tech. So far, GhostRobo's Titanfall vid was one of them, plus one of the trailers in Battlefield: Hardline from the official channel had a 60FPS vid, and I forgot where but I think the recent season of the Video Game High School trailer used 48FPS.

As of today, it's now public to all channels, though there are requirements to display the vid the way it should.

* Google Chrome at least. It should use HTML5 by default for YouTube.
* Resolutions at 480p or lower will not play at 60fps.
* 1080p60 might be very CPU-intensive. May not be recommended with dual-core PCs.

EDIT: Here's one of my recent upload presented in 60fps.

This came about eight years too late, but I'm not complaining!

Is there a way to turn it off? I'm not switching to Chrome every time I want to watch a recent video at a resolution higher than 480p :V

Uh, I didn't really notice this at all. Even recent videos with a resolution of 1040p don't appear to have any difference compared to previous ones.

Anyway, it's nice it has been finally done.

I had issues today where the tab I had a video running on a while back suddenly loaded another video, at first I thought I miss clicked on a video before I switched tab, which, you know, happens at times. It happened again a bit later (and loading the same video.) once the video was done again. (I should stop listening to music from youtube...) But you know, I thought it was nothing.

But I just got done watching the latest CaH and I noticed that there is now a timer counting down till the page will auto load a new video, that you have to manually cancel if you don't want to see it.

This, has to be the most annoying feature ever, who thought this would be a good idea? I'd not mind strangling that person.

I got into the 60FPS launch window myself. I recently made and uploaded a 1080p60 remaster of a Resident Evil Zero (Nintendo 64) trailer sourced from a promotional VHS tape that I purchased months ago. The point being that even VHS tapes can now be completely preserved online forever at its original frame-rate. Hurrah.

EDIT: What's up with embedding YouTube videos here? I can't seem to do so.

Might have something to do with the old embed code only supporting Flash, not HTML5 (which 60fps video requires).
