What's the deal here? It's supposed to be supported now, but the option doesn't show up. Not only does it not show up, but every time I open a video I get "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available" at which point the message disappears by itself and the video then plays.

Info:
OS X 10.9.5
Safari 9.0.2
Yes, I'm running adblock, turning it off doesn't change things.

I haven't run into this myself, so I don't have any help to offer. I don't use Safari most of the time - I use Chrome. And I don't know of any 60 FPS YouTube content that I'd really want to watch. What You Tube stuff are you trying to watch that doesn't work?

Video game stuff: Yogscast, Hatfilms, etc.

Here's one I watched on my AppleTV last night that definitely ran at 60 fps:

Ok I use Safari only & seems to work pretty well! Never had the problem of what you described except when I had the Click to Flash plugins (older OS).

Anyway try these:

I don't have a solution because 60fps game videos on Youtube usually work for me with Safari but I experienced similar weirdness when trying to watch 4k video - sometimes the option shows up and sometimes it does not. AFAIK it's only supported on Chrome but if this is true I don't understand why it sometimes works!?

If the video works anyway, why worry about a message that is shown for a brief period before the video is shown? I am using SeaMonkey with an extension that forces YouTube to use Flash instead of HTML5, and I see that same message for less than a second before the video starts. I do not worry about that because the video works anyway.

Because its indicative of an error somewhere along the line, which could have other less visible effects.
