YouTube rolls out 60fps video support for Chrome

A day after deploying direct YouTube uploads for PlayStation 4, YouTube is now supporting 60fps videos on Chrome browsers.


YouTube has followed up on its promise to support videos at 60 frames per second. According to Kotaku, the Google-owned video company is now seeing 60fps videos hit its service, albeit only for Google's Chrome browser.

This comes in the wake of YouTube sharing officially hitting PlayStation 4 yesterday, allowing users to directly upload their gameplay clips to the service through the DualShock 4's 'Share' button. PS4 users can likewise use the app to view videos in full 1080p with 5.1 surround sound. The YouTube service's arrival comes months after it was first announced at E3.

An example of 60fps for YouTube videos can be seen below. Chrome users, be sure to set your video settings to 720p or 1080p. No word on when this feature will hit other web browsers.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
