What framerate for Youtube videos?


Recommended Posts

Hello. I saw a video where they sad that the screen on most phones, laptops etc has 60 Hz wich mean that the screen is updating 60 times per second and therefor the fps choosen for video should be 30 fps (or 60). But my XF10 dont support 30 fps. Any suggestions what fps is best suited for youtubevideos?

I have never heard of a camera that doesn't support 30 fps. On Fujifilm cameras, it often appears as 29.97, which is technically correct but might be confusing.

In any case, you cannot go wrong with 30 fps (or 29.97) on YouTube or anywhere else.

The 29.97 number comes from the old days of broadcast television. It was a means to allow color tv to work with the previous black and white broadcasts and not make everyone have to go buy a new tv until they wanted to. It was called theNTSCstandard. This changed in the US a few years back when the entire over the air broadcasting went digital. Other countries (Europe) went with the PAL standard of 25 frames per second. This may help explain:


If you know of any older video folks they can tell you hair curdling tales of problems they would face in trying to convert the older video into the newer standards. 🤢

For the most part, you will be okay using 29.97 or 30 frames per second. Today’s software usually have no problems converting between the two.

From YouTube's own specifications:



Content should be encoded and uploaded in the same frame rate it was recorded.

Common frame rates include: 24, 25, 30, 48, 50, 60 frames per second (other frame rates are also acceptable).

Interlaced content should be deinterlaced before uploading. For example, 1080i60 content should be deinterlaced to 1080p30. 60 interlaced fields per second should be deinterlaced to 30 progressive frames per second.

    • HI Rufo, I have changed procedures.  I now use the colors space transform (CST) as my first node.  The CST is set up as follows: - Apply the CST effect to the first node. - Color Space is Rec 2020 - Input gamma is FLog - Output color space is Rec 709 - Output gamma is Gamma 2.4 All other nodes to grade the clip proceed the node that contains the color space transform. Hope this helps. Don

    • Interesting, and a bit subtle. I also think it'd be better to activate on a half press. But there seems to be good reasoning behind a number of other choices, so I wonder if there's a good reason behind this one and we're just not seeing it. To some degree IS goes on and off like AF does, but this is an exception, isn't it?
    • I couldn't find my manual so downloaded a PDF copy and did some searching.  From p146 of the manual, regarding Shooting Only stabilisation: "Image stabilization enabled only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode C) or the shutter is released." So it appears that the camera is 'working as intended' and that in AF-S the stabilisation mechanism kicks in only as you release the shutter. I think I would prefer it to activate on a half press, like it does in AF-C.
    • Sometime a short break can help to phrase things so that they do not sound annoying, Well that is the hope anyway, so here goes. Having that meter would be nice as well as having the histogram. But having them or not is a minor consideration in terms of what you are wanting to do because the app does not work with intervalometers. The only way you can get a time lapse sequence using the app is to manually click the shutter button, wait then click it again and so on. Even if the meter were there, you would need extremely fast reflexes to see and react to a lighting change by changing the settings and then going back to clicking the shutter button. Doing that for hours would be a feat indeed. The equipment you mention does this by analyzing several past images and predicting what settings to apply to the next incoming image. Right now the app has the live view which will tell you if an area is over or under exposed, but as far as what you are wanting to do without being able to connect the app to an intervalometer, well …
