There has been a heated debate regarding frame rate in video games for quite some time, but it came to a head with the release of the PS4 and Xbox One. When it became clear that 1080p 60FPS wasn’t going to be possible for every current-gen game, gamers were disappointed, but now developers have one more incentive to crank up the visuals on their upcoming releases. This week, YouTube implemented a new feature which allows 60 frame per second video uploads. More →

YouTube starts shaming ISPs for delivering awful streaming

Move over, Netflix — you’re no longer the only video streaming service capable of shaming ISPs. Quartz notices that YouTube has started delivering small pop-up messages in videos that are experiencing slow buffering that invite you to “find out why” you’re “experiencing interruptions.” When you click on the message, you’re taken to Google’s new website that documents ISPs’ video streaming quality and shows you that your ISP happens to be doing a bad job of getting you the video you want to watch.

YouTube prepares paid music service, blocks labels that don’t sign on

After months of speculation, YouTube has finally confirmed the existence of its subscription service for music, but unfortunately, not everyone is on board. As Robert Kyncl, YouTube’s head of content and business operations, has explained to the Financial Times, many independent record labels that did not agree to the new licensing terms will begin to see their videos blocked “in a matter of days” as the popular video site makes room for those who signed on the dotted line.

Latest YouTube Android update finally adds a badly needed feature

Want to check out the latest Jack White video on your Android phone but are annoyed that you have to watch it on a low resolution? Not to worry — per 9to5Google, the latest YouTube update for Android will let you choose your videos’ resolution as long as it’s 720p or lower. There’s still no option to set your video resolution to 1080p or higher, likely due to concerns about mobile data use or battery consumption. Clicking on the “auto” resolution option will simply give you the best recommended resolution for your video based on your detected connection speed. The update is slowly rolling out to Android devices so hopefully you’ll be able to get it within the next few days.
