Any hardware that ships with the necessary DRM licences for netflix 4k or at least youtube 4k capability on CE? And HDR also. Maybe HDR 10 too?
If not, any workaround possible?
Its really painful to have a separate device just for even the plain ol’ Youtube in 4K.
Plenty of devices are available with L1 widevine for Netflix 4K on Android, not sure about the YouTube 4K situation.
You can reboot to Android from CoreELEC so you do not need a separate device.
You will not and probably never be able to play 4K Netflix from the Kodi Netflix addon, it’s not a hardware issue, there is no workaround to this.
