Ready Your Eyeballs—Youtube Now Supports 60FPS Videos

We caught wind of Youtube finally rolling out native 60FPS support for videos on their platform back in June of this year.

Now, the ability to view those 60 frames per second videos has finally arrived, and it’s currently available for Google Chrome and Internet Explorer (thanks, Dennis Skellington). Featured above, you can watch a video of Mario Kart 8 in pure 60FPS.

Can you tell the difference between the new hotness and the now old standard? Who’s going to stop someone from uploading the very first 60FPS video featuring cats sleeping with silly things on their heads? Oh goddamnit, that’s already happening. Well goodbye, productivity.

We’ll keep you guys posted regarding support on other browsers—Firefox, Safari, etc.

    Well, at least now I have a reason to go back to Chrome.
    I still think I’ll use Waterfox as my main browser though.

    At first I thought “It still looks like it’s running at 30fps” and then I noticed I had to select [email protected] to get the 60 fps hahaha

    FPS is one of those things that I just can’t bring myself to care about. The difference between 30 and 60 doesn’t register for me unless I’m watching the videos side-by-side.

    Will this make all the Platinum Game videos a lot more interesting? Now that the FPS can match up with the games.
