I guess the title is pretty much self explanatory but I'll illustrate a bit anyways. So, I was just thinking that since there is the possibility of uploading 60 fps videos onto youtube, and as some channels with gameplay videos have already done that, I was wondering if WoLP should jump onto that band wagon aswell? I'd love to see 60 fps long plays of games that actually run at 60 fps, instead of the regular 30 fps standard which, I guess, is kinda the norm nowadays except maybe 24 fps for movies and TV shows etc. What do you guys think? Viewers could ofc change it back to 30 fps from the youtube playback quality settings if they prefer the somewhat more cinematic look transpiring from the lower fps. Cheers!
What I meant is that if the game IS able to run at 60 fps or higher AND at 720p or higher, we should totally promote, maybe even enforce, using those stats for the long play video file as well. If you make a long play out of a game that runs on a console that is capped at 480p @ 30 fps then, of course, there is absolutely no point in using higher quality settings for the video. Well, I don't know for sure how it works with the resolution, but as far as it goes for fps, at least. I think that capping the video resolution at the same point the game runs at makes the image a little blurrier on youtube. When you watch a 240p video of an old DOS game versus a 720p one, you can clearly see that the 720p is more sharp, whereas the 240p one is blurrier but, also, in away "softer" to look at.
That was due to limitations of the recording software at the time of the recording. We've been trying to replace some of the older videos but it isn't a priority.
I've also seen Youtube refuse to show some videos at 720p even though it was recorded in 720(namely my Hitman Absolution longplay)
I'd say WoL is less concerned about Youtube quality and its more about the quality when downloading from the archive. Hence why they always say, if you want better quality, go to the website.
My new SNES, GB, GBC, GBA and some consoles will be have a high def encode in 60fps only for Youtube but the priority is downloadable videos in archive.org like said JagOfTroy
