Youtube adds support for 60 fps videos and fan donations

Youtube is adding 60 frames per second video playback along with some cool new features for creators. The updates are scheduled to go live in the next few months but we’re already getting a peek at some of the improvements.

As Vidcon, one of the biggest online video conventions out there, gets underway Google announced some of the new changes coming to Youtube.

First up is support for 48 and 60fps video playback which is intended to make gameplay footage look better online. Most modern games strive for 60 frames per second performance so that will now translate nicely when users post gameplay or trailer videos on Youtube.

Secondly Youtube is adding support for “fan funding”. Many channels out there are supported by fans through Kickstarter, Indiegogo and other such services but Google is trying to cut out the middleman. A few select channels will start testing out this feature, where fans can donate money directly to their favourite creators through Youtube.

Finally there’s a new Youtube Creator Studio app, currently on Android but launching on iOS too, which lets you manage your channel on the go. Alongside it the desktop version will also get a redesign and a number of other improvements. For a full list you can check out the source link below.
