YouTube gets 60fps videos, Battlefield Hardline trailer becomes one of the first Beneficiaries

Today, YouTube gets 60fps videos, and a collective cry of joy goes up among gamers and video connoisseurs everywhere. The video quality debate has been going on for some time now, and while most videos are available in 1080p these days, the frames-per-second for these videos has generally been a secondary consideration. Well, YouTube has said that this isn’t the case anymore, with the ability to upload videos with higher frame rates, like 48fps and 60fps videos, announced at VidCon today. To demonstrate exactly what effect this will have on videos, the Battlefield Hardline trailer was one of those given the benefit of this “High Frame Rate” upgrade; check out the results:

 The increase in frame rate is certainly more obvious in the parts of the trailer with lots of action. For some, it might not seem like a big deal, but the next generation of game consoles is definitely pushing for this kind of requirement from YouTube (even if PC couldn’t do it before) so that their gameplay videos can be fully realized when they are posted to YouTube. That’s not all that YouTube is bringing to the table with a whole slew of improvements that are detailed in the YouTube Creator Blog (here).

What do you think about all this fuss about 60fps? Can you tell the difference? Let us know your thoughts.
