We have been working the last few days to finally get HDR to work in YouTube.
Starting with version 19.2-Matrix_rc2, CoreELEC introduces support for both HDR10 and HLG formats with the VP9 codec, which is primarily used in YouTube.
Make sure that InputStream.Adaptive is installed and that MPEG-DASH is enabled, and the
HDR toggle is enabled in YouTube settings.
A coupe of interesting tidbits for comparison purposes:
- HLG videos play as HDR10 (incorrectly) in YouTube in Android on Amlogic.
- Apparently, the HDR metadata in Kodi on Android is currently mapped incorrectly. This issue affects all Android based platforms, but it is likely to be fixed in the future, as I’ve opened a pull request with a proposed fix.
@noggin I’m not 100% sure on the correctness of the metadata, though. I see that you have a HD Fury, could you please verify that the metadata you see in the Kodi or dmesg log (search for
config) matches the metadata that is actually going to the display?
