YouTube Now Supports 4K Live Streaming At 60 FPS, 360 Degrees As Well
YouTube is constantly changing all the time and a new feature that the site has introduced is the support for 4K live streaming at 60 FPS this is both for standard video formats as well as 360 degrees. This means that you could also enjoy viewing videos in 4K if you have a Samsung gear headset or some other form of VR. It is nice to see that this option will be available to content creators.
Only recently 4K HDR support was added to the website but now YouTube has gone another step further and introduced 4K live streaming at 60 FPS. This will allow viewers to view content in the best possible video quality if content creators choose to use this feature. There are content creators that have already started using 360 degrees style theme for their videos and there are those that have started recording in 4K as well.
Now YouTube content creators will be able to broadcast on the go with 4K live streaming at 60 FPS. 360-degree video is relatively new and it is complicated to record as well so it may take a while for people to record this type of format at 4K but all you need for 4K live streaming at 60 FPS is a compatible camera that can record at such a high resolution and good internet of course.
I expect gaming channels to take full advantage of this feature as they can broadcast fluid gameplay at such a high resolution plus it would also come in handy when covering live events as well. Speaking of live events be sure to check out the AMD Zen live preview later this month. You can find out more about the upcoming CPU before launch through the live stream that will be taking place.
