YouTube keeps gamers in mind with latest streaming updates

Gamers, rejoice: YouTube updated its video to allow 60fps live streaming in HTML5. YouTube users can start a live stream on YouTube at 60fps, and Google’s video platform will transcode a stream into 720p60 and 1080p60, which means smoother playback for gaming and other fast-action videos. YT also partnered with Elgato and XSplit on new versions of Elgato Game Capture, XSplit Broadcaster, and XSplit Gamecaster that support 60fps live streaming. In addition, YT live streams were updated for HTML5 player supported browsers, so users can skip backward in a stream while it’s live and watch at 1.5-2 times the speed to catch back up.
