YouTube Rolling-Out new 1080p Premium Standard
 

 
 extremetech.com said
If you pay for YouTube Premium, you may have recently come across a new playback option in the bottom-right corner of your screen. YouTube is sneakily testing “1080p Premium,” a video quality option that streams at an enhanced bitrate.
YouTube videos play at 1080p (1,920 pixels horizontally, 1,080 vertically) by default. Free and paid users can adjust playback down to 144p, 240p, 360p, 480p, and 720p60 (720p with 60Hz frame rate), depending on the video they’re watching. YouTube has also added higher-definition options over the last decade: 1080p HD, 1440p HD, and 4K. Together, these choices allow users to tailor their viewing experience based on the device they’re watching on, their internet speed, their comfort, and more.

Over the last few days, Premium users have reported seeing a new 1080p Premium option in the video quality menu. YouTube spokesperson Paul Pennington told The Verge that “a small group of YouTube Premium subscribers” can try out the feature, which purports to offer “an enhanced bitrate version of 1080p which provides more information per pixel.” This, Pennington said, creates a higher-quality viewing experience.
image
Bitrate, or the measurement of how much video data is transferred within a specific timeframe, is often said to be half of what makes up a visually appealing playback experience. YouTube’s standard 1080p option typically plays at eight to 10 megabits per second (Mbps). While YouTube hasn’t said what Mbps 1080p Premium would provide, a Reddit user who took advantage of YouTube’s “Stats for Nerds” tool found the playback mode to run at about 13Mbps—a marked improvement from the standard option, given the massive difference just 3Mbps can provide.

ehh 23mbps is still scrapping the bottom barrel. 20 is the floor for h.264 ... paying for something you won't notice the difference for a mobile device is sucker sh*t.

Should at least get to 30mbps on the free tier.

No device would benefit from this? What about 120hz displays?

I believe the price for premium is cheaper but you get all features as if you had made the purchase in the US

YouTube Premium is one of the best investments there is




YouTube music alone...






Open a radio from a song and they'll let you filter out "popular" vs deep cuts"

Soundcloud recently started doing this too.

They keep bombarding you with the free trial screen every time you move to a different section on the app (obviously to get your credit card info and start autobilling you). Then they try to hide your profile from you behind 6 sub menus. And even if you upload in high resolution waveform's (.wav) they only allow you to stream it in 192khz 16bit MP3 format.

Venture capitalists bought the company 3-4 years ago and turns out, it's a loser, so now they are trying to recoupe the loses before they have to shut down the servers.
