Gamers and Peter Jacksons of the world rejoice, YouTube is now offering high framerate videos.

We already knew the feature was coming, as 48fps and 60fps support were both announced at VidCon earlier this year, but as Kotaku spotted, this is the first time the feature is available to the public.

You need to watch the videos in HD in order to get 60fps, and it only works in Chrome and Safari so far, but it sure does look silky smooth.
