There are big things happening at the world's biggest video site. Which one is biggest will probably depend on exactly what you want out out of Google's streaming behemoth, but the most notable addition from an Android perspective is the new YouTube Creator Studio app. This add-on allows frequent YouTube uploaders to check analytics, likes, comments, and that sort of thing without needing a PC. If you make your living on YouTube, which is statistically unlikely, this will be an invaluable resource.

Statistics can be broken down into strict views, minutes watched, total subscribers, and monetized earnings, very much like Google Analytics. The comment view will allow you to see and moderate comments across all your videos at once. The editing tools won't let you edit the video itself, but you can quickly adjust title, tags, description, and other settings. Finally, notifications can ding you when you hit subscriber or view goals.

EA's Titanfall (Xbox One) at 60 frames per second.

YouTube is also showing off a handful of new features across the board. Uploaders can now post videos in 48 or 60 frames per second, which is great for high-performance PC and console games. Users will soon be able to place funding buttons for Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, and Patreon on their videos, like a digital tip jar (or begging bowl). Other new features coming to the web and/or Android include an expanded Audio Library with effects, automatic links to collaborators, and user-submitted subtitles. Expect these to hit YouTube app updates in the coming weeks and months.

    Finally 60 frames.

  • Zyre

    Why can't they launch the 60fps thing right now? It's working as you can see from the video?

    • Ben Brocka

      Youtube, and Google in general alllllways do staged rollouts. Allows load testing, feedback etc before they push it live.

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    Call of Duty fans, rejoice

  • Daniel Ng

    Wow. That video even runs fluidly on the mobile version of Youtube, 60 fps.

  • gonsa sba

    And should I use Flash or HTML5 for best performance?

  • eliseo

    There are even cats!

  • abobobilly

    60FPS? FUCKS YESS. Waited a century for this :S

      This is simply a brilliant paragraph. The only downside is that right-clicking a 48fps or 60fps video and selecting 'Stats for nerds' does not indicate the framerate.

    It seems that trying to play a 60fps video at 1080p ends with tears, as in video just pauses and plays audio.

    • Ben Brocka

      Works for me, though there's noticeable tearing in the Titanfall video--not sure if that's the video's fault or a vsync thing.

    Are you sure? To me, it read like Youtube were creating their own (probably using Wallet).

  • Wall Breaker

    I love Android, but Google seriously needs to get some productivity apps to Rival ipads.
    I have been wanting some kind of video editing app and music app for Android for awhile.

    I know there are already apps in the play store but I have tried them all and most of them suck.

    • joser116

      That's cause of the freakin Android audio lag.

  • Zimmerman

    60 fps? Uhhh I can't even notice the difference, am I blind?

    • someone755

      No, the difference is not there for the most of us. Some people, especially some of those that do gaming on 144 Hz monitors, will notice, though.
      Don't understand why this is being implemented, to be honest. It's only eating YouTube's server storage and user bandwith.

      • Ben Brocka

        You absolutely don't need a 144hz monitor to notice the difference. It really depends on the video content in question. It's very noticeable in some games, and some effects don't even display properly on 30FPS (such as 60hz 1 frame toggling animations/flicker, which is very common on 16 bit consoles).

        I also wonder how much of the "you can't even tell the difference!" stuff is due to people being so used to 30FPS content on video sites. It bugs the crap out of me when PC games are 30 FPS locked. For whatever reason console games don't feel as noticeable, not sure if it's some 30hz black magic or just used to it at this point, but if you play Halo CE on PC next to a 60FPS shooter you'll almost certainly notice the difference.

    • Eric James Salcido

      Go to this site on a semi-decent computer: http://www.testufo.com/#test=framerates
      Then, make sure there's a green box underneath the animation that says VALID* I have terrible eye sight, but can definitely see a difference. Maybe seeing them side by side will help you notice?

      • Zimmerman

        What I need is a side by side video. can you find one for me on youtube?

  • Raed Ibrahim Albloushy

    Anyone please I need the apk :( country not supported :(

  • trex53
