On Thursday YouTube announced that it has added 60fps live streaming to allow users to broadcast in real time.

The 60 frame-per-second rate is an early preview, according to Engadget, available just for HTML5-compatible browsers.

The site is also rolling out HTML5 playback, so that viewers can rewind in the middle of a live stream and then play it back at a higher speed to catch up to the live feed.

The new features are likely to be especially useful for game streaming as well as for watching live sporting events, among many other possibilities.
