Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I upload a lot of old TV commercials and stuff from standard-def video on YouTube, and I've been trying to do the latest ones upscaled to hi-def in 60fps, as that's the only way to get video-based material to show at the proper frame rate. The usual frame rate for any online video is closer to 24fps, which works fine for movies and stuff shot on film, but not video.
Anyways, I've noticed while all 60fps YouTube videos play properly on my laptop computer hooked to the TV, the YouTube apps on Roku and built into my TV have problems with some of them.
Example- this is a short clip I shot with an iPhone- it plays at 60fps through the YouTube app on the Roku Streaming Stick +, but not the YouTube app built into my LG TV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufegLSHq-nQ (Bonus points if you recognize the band!)
It seems there are different video codecs which may be making the difference here, but it's odd that even my untouched iPhone video won't play at 60fps through the TV's app, and that some play at the right frame rate on one device and not the other, and vice versa.
