YouTube rolls out 60FPS video support

You may not have noticed it, but YouTube videos have been capped at 30 frames per second for years. There was an announcement back in June saying that 60FPS video playback was coming soon, and it's finally here. 

A few videos that were originally uploaded to the video streaming site at 60FPS are finally running at their original frame rate, instead of being streamed at a clumsy-looking 30FPS. However, it's still unclear if all of the old videos in YouTube will be getting the frame rate boost. As usual, the update is slowly being rolled out to users, so be patient if you aren't getting 60FPS yet. Hit the video below to see how 60FPS looks like (just make sure the resolution is at least 720p).
