The Google-owned video streaming site explained in a post on the YouTube Partners & Creators Blog: "When you start a live stream on YouTube at 60fps, we'll transcode your stream into 720p60 and 1080p60, which means silky smooth playback for gaming and other fast-action videos. We'll also make your stream available in 30fps on devices where high frame rate viewing is not yet available, while we work to expand support in the coming weeks".

YouTube worked together with Elgato and XSplit in order to create software that was capable of handling 60FPS streaming.
