YouTube is a platform of billions of different videos. Millions of people watch and upload videos on different content and gain huge number of Youtube subscribers. The quality of videos on YouTube is different as it depends upon the fps.
Fps stands for frames per second. It means how fast your images move in a video. It is just like how quickly you flip the pages of your book. For example, if video is played at 24fps, it means that each second of video has 24 different images.
If the video plays at high quality 1080 fps, then it lags the CPU and consumes more energy, freezes the videos, audio glitches and browsers crash down. It occurs on any system, even mac 2010. By lowering the fps, less energy of your system will be utilized, and it will also reduce the lagging of the CPU up to two to four times. The switching off the 60fps will also support the older graphic cards.
