NASA’s 4K Videos Now Run at 60 FPS on YouTube
Cernescu Andrei / 3 years ago
With so many cameras out there that are capable of 4K video recording, YouTube had to keep up the pace and allow those videos to run at their native resolutions and framerates once uploaded. Ultra High-Definition videos at 60 FPS now represent the pinnacle of digital eye candy, and NASA is now allowing its followers to enjoy its uploaded clips at the highest possible quality.
Leveraging YouTube’s capability to serve 4K videos at 60 FPS, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has recently uploaded a short clip to its ReelNASA account, which usually shows off video content related to the International Space Station. This is definitely not the first time we’ve seen beautiful 4K videos from NASA, but most of them were usually timelapses made using a considerable number of still images.
The upcoming videos will definitely be stunning to look at and will probably be enjoyed by a great number of enthusiasts. However, not all PCs are capable of 4K playback, especially when we’re talking about 60 FPS.
Have a look at the YouTube video below and let us know if your computer can run it at the highest configuration.
