Not so very long ago, just having decent video on the intenet was considered a big deal. Today though, it's all about live streaming.
Everyone's in on the game, whether you're a fan of Periscope or Meerkat or you're more of a pro and streaming your top gaming moments as they happen via Twitch. Right now, there's a pretty good chance you could find someone eating a sandwich and watch it in HD for some reason.
YouTube is the latest major player to make a bid for live streaming, following on from a rather muted attempt a couple of years back. This time, they're really going for it by offering live streaming via HTML 5 in 720 and 1080 resolution and at 60 frames per second.
All those numbers basically mean that it's been optimised particularly for the demands of live video streaming, and achieving a smooth look to fast paced video - including sports. The game focus makes it pretty clear that YouTube wants to steal some of Twitch's thunder, and competition is never a bad thing.
Live streaming at 60fps will only work on HTML5 browers for the moment (which includes most of the popular ones like Chrome, Firefox and IE) but it will be viewable on any kind of platform, defaulting to 30fps where the higher frame rate isn't supported.
You can find examples of live streams at this link and if you want to get started on your own stream you'll need to make sure you Google account is verified and is in good standing. You can find out more about that here.
