Stadia rolls out a highly-requested direct streaming feature on YouTube

You can now livestream your Stadia gameplay to YouTube in 4K resolution.

What you need to know

  • Stadia has added support for 4K streaming on YouTube at up to 60fps and in HDR.
  • It's likely that the new resolution capping is determined by the game you're playing.
  • The higher streaming resolution begins automatically, so there is no need for you to do anything.

Stadia's direct YouTube streaming capability was launched last year, allowing players to stream from the Stadia web app directly to YouTube with no additional software requirements. Now, the feature has picked up a highly-requested upgrade.

As per a Twitter user who goes by the name Nohinn, you can now stream your Stadia gameplay directly to YouTube in 4K resolution (via 9to5Google). The stream also supports up to 60 frames per second and HDR. Previously, the stream was limited to 1080p at 60 frames per second, regardless of whether the title supported higher resolution.

However, it appears that the new stream quality is heavily influenced by the game being played. A screenshot shared by Nohinn, for example, reveals resolution options up to 1440p at 60fps, while another user revealed a Red Dead Redemption streaming quality of 2160p at 60fps.

It also appears that when you start playing any of the best Stadia games, the 4K streaming quality is automatically activated. This means you won't have to change anything to get the feature to work. You can see that for yourself by hitting the cogwheel icon at the bottom-right of the player after starting your stream. Select the "Quality" option to check the resolution cap for your stream.

It took a long time for Google to add the feature to its game streaming platform: it arrived a year after official support for direct streaming was added. Regardless, it should be a welcome improvement for those who use Stadia's direct streaming capability.

Apple Says 128GB iPhone 15 Pro Limited to 1080p ProRes Video Recording Unless External Storage Connected

ProRes video recording remains limited to 1080p quality at 30 frames per second on the 128GB model of the iPhone 15 Pro, unless the device is recording directly to a connected external storage drive , according to Apple. On the 256GB and higher iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, ProRes video recording is supported in up to 4K quality at 60 frames per second to both internal storage and external storage. Apple does not mention this information on the iPhone 15 Pro's tech specs page on its website, but the limitation is listed when comparing the iPhone 15 Pro to another iPhone model in the Apple Store app, as seen in the screenshot below. The same limitation applied to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro models with 128GB of storage, but those devices cannot record ProRes video to external storage, so at least iPhone 15 Pro users have that option this time around. The limitation does not apply to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, as that model starts with 256GB of storage. ProRes video fi
