Initially announced back in June, YouTube had teased the 48fps and 60fps support for its videos would be rolled out in the coming months. The feature is currently only supported by Chrome and Safari browsers, as reported by The Verge.
The feature has not been officially confirmed to be rolling out by YouTube.
Users can try out 60fps video playback on YouTube by finding a video that has been uploaded at 60fps, and then navigating to the 720p60 (HD) or 1080p60 (full-HD) quality options. The roll-out of the feature was first spotted by a gaming website named Kotaku who shared a Mario Kart 8 video that shows the noticeable difference.
YouTube had said, "Your video game footage with crazy high frame rates will soon look as awesome on YouTube as it does when you're playing, when we launch support for 48 and even 60 frames per second in the coming months."
On Wednesday, the popular online video service tipped that it is considering offering ad-free subscription.
Google's Senior Vice President heading YouTube business, Susan Wojcicki at the Code/Mobile technology conference said, "There are going to be cases where people are going to say 'I don't want to see the ads or I want to have a different kind of experience'.
The search engine giant, in a bid to make it easy for developers to create YouTube live-streaming or video broadcasting features to their Android apps, launched the YouTube WatchMe for Android project. It essentially provides a template for developers to build on or integrate.
