A few months ago, YouTube boosted the quality of its service by allowing users to publish video content at 60 frames per second. Today, Ultra HD also benefits.
YouTube wants to stay ahead of other video platforms, and if the group already offered a few videos in 4K Ultra HD, none has so far been offered above 25 frames per second.
It must be said that at present, no camera available to the general public is capable of recording in Ultra HD 4K at 50 or 60 frames per second. These services are reserved for professional cameras sold at high prices … But things will change, and YouTube is adapting to present itself as a technological showcase, a platform allowing owners of Ultra HD screens to make the most of their equipment.
YouTube has just published a handful of video clips offering a definition of 3840 x 2160 pixels in 50 and 60 frames per second.
Small problem: it is necessary not only to have the equipment to take advantage of the proposed definition, but also a solid machine to avoid jerks … As well as an Internet connection just as solid for live reading without being disturbed by buffering …
So finally why does YouTube publish videos that almost nobody will be able to read properly? Simply because the platform is able to do so … This is a show of force, allowing the platform to announce that it is following the material development of users.
To date, there are only 6 videos offered in such definitions and frame rates, a playlist is available at this address.
