YouTube now supports 1080p60 and 720p60

22 November 2014 - 09:23 PM

Apparently YouTube started 60p support late October.  :dancing:  However, not all browsers are able to show the 1080p60 and 720p60 options yet. The browsers I have that can display 60p options are:

Chrome - OS 10.6.8 and newer
FireFox - no luck
Safari - Yosemite yes, Maverick no

PC - I only have Windows 8.1 at the moment:
Chrome - Windows 8.1 and highly likely Windows 7 also
FireFox - no luck under Windows 8.1
IE - Windows 8.1 and highly likely Windows 7 also


Still, the most reliable way to show 60p movies online is to embed the mp4 files on your own web pages - no issue with all major browsers except Mac version of FireFox.

YouTube may also support 48p, but I’ve not come across one example yet. Perhaps the next Hobbit trailer since the movie was shot in 48p. 2.7K 48p will do until 4K 60p and 48p become affordable.

Backscatter Flip 3.1 filters questions

30 October 2014 - 12:56 PM

I received Flip 3.1 filters and noticed the one marked SHALLOW and the one marked DIVE are pretty much identical unlike the Yellow and Orange filters shown on Backscatter website. The one marked DEEP is indeed noticeably darker and redder than the other two.


My questions to the Flip 3.1 owners are:

1. Are your SHALLOW and DIVE filters more like Backscatter product images and videos shown here (very different) or more like mine (practically identical)?

2. Does your Flip 3.1 filter frame fit the GoPro 3+ or GoPro 4 Standard Housing better than mine?


I just want to make sure the SHALLOW or the DIVE filter I received are not mislabeled.
