YouTube Is Experimenting With Ultra High Def, Ultra Smooth Video Playback — Here Are The Examples.

That’s okay, though — the very vast majority of videos on YouTube aren’t shot at anywhere near this resolution/framerate yet, anyway. Having announced the introduction of the new 360-degree video feature on YouTube, the company is reportedly back at it, with a strong on-going rumor suggesting that YouTube is currently putting to test ultra HD 4K videos on the website.Merging the two means YouTube now offers its highest quality content yet, although it’s only available on a very limited selection of clips right now. Besides, it was only months back that YouTube had enhanced video-quality, adding the stunning 60 FPS video playback feature, but now it seemingly has taken things to the next level; 60 FPS videos, at 4K.

Many cameras can shoot at ultra HD resolution with impressive frame rates, but they tend to be expensive rigs, and require plenty of processing heft to capture. Mind you, to take full pleasure of the quality and smoothness of the video, you’ll have to sport a pretty capable machine and a 4K monitor to go with it.

And just as you’d expect, the video playback looks as stunning as you could possible imagine; added sharpness to the videos, and movement being far more realistic as compared to the standard 24, and 30 FPS video. You’ll need a display capable of handling 3840×2160 to take advantage of the resolution to begin with — but if the rig behind the display isn’t up to snuff, these videos will look way worse than they usually do.

And just before you get yourself excited, let us break it to you that one basic requirement for yielding the best of experience out of the videos will be a really strong device, one that can handle a display of 3840 x 2160 while running 4K videos. YouTube hasn’t yet opened up support for high-resolution 60fps videos for users just yet, but hopefully enough views on this short playlist of six test videos will convince the company to do so. Buffer times will also increase too with the new video standard; that’s because there’s a significantly higher quantity of data being downloaded with such high quality, high framerate video.

Some tweaks they’ve made as of late to their codec and processing pipeline allows them to stream video like this within reasonable bandwidth constraints, whereas before it just wasn’t feasible.
