How game streaming on YouTube compares to Twitch

Maybe YouTube should update the mobile app to support 60fps also. YouTube sucks on iOS. Maximum of 720p and 30fps.

Yeah, that is lame. It should display 60 FPS at least if the user is on wifi.

You're getting live high resolution video, flown through the frickin air to a device that fits in your pocket! I want you to stop a second and just realize how damn insane that is. Just think of how incredible something like that is before you start with complaints.

PS4 app only plays in 720p too. It does have support for 60 FPS though.

I won't say this is stupid but don't they own twitch. I would just grow twitch to stream everything not just games.

Oh yeah I'm the stupid one lol. Forgot they won that battle. Well this is a good move. I wonder how can we improve video streaming technology, because IP providers have been know to do shady things to the customers like throttle bandwidth and handicap some websites and appz

Actually, Amazon bought twitch.
