YouTube is going to a whole new level with some exciting new features which have been announced at the VidCon this year. Now the videos in the Google video wing are going to get support for clips running at 48-and-60 frames-per-second. This means that the video game footage you upload from your PS 4 or Xbox One can be viewed with the perfect display results.
YouTube is also giving you an opportunity to experience those 1080p60 game trailers in a whole new way. All you have to do is select the 1080p and you will get the higher frame rate per second to enjoy your video content. We are also looking forward to some customizable and pretty annotation cards which are soon going to make their way along with some other tools for your fans. This might sound like the most amazing thing for YouTube users; these tools will allow fans to drop in a little money for you so don’t only have to rely on the revenue from ads.
Language barrier is no longer a problem too. If most of your viewers are in Poland for instance and you don’t know Polish, that wont be a problem; foreign-language-fans can submit their own translations based on the captions or subtitles that you've made. YouTube is also getting its own app for Android phones; the Creator Studio which is going to give access to analytics data including real-time estimated views.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
