    It kind of went unnoticed with the latest Radeon driver release from AMD, but Netflix 4K support has been added towards RX 5700 as this driver update brings support for supports Microsoft PlayReady ...

    Let's see how this Netflix and chill pans out for this gen GPUs.
    Logically, this feature should be present baked in the yet unreleased APUs.

    Not entirely sure if we should celebrate another win for DRM.

    DRM has already won. We should celebrate that people can even see the videos. There is no way Netflix would have them if they didn't implement DRM.

    I experienced a similar problem on just my single monitor 2K setup. I don't know what your setup is like, but in my case I resolved it by going to my driver settings, in my case Radeon, and disabling my refresh rate. So I went to Game -> All Applications -> Turn off v-sync unless app specifies.

    Both Plex, Crunchyroll and Netflix, all three of which are UWP, experienced severe studying when I had Enhanced Sync enabled.

    I have managed to narrow it down, stutters seem to disappear when you disable subtitles, which isn't really a fix on their part, when you're trying to watch something on a non native tongue

    Kind of annoying/weird that Vega is still left out despite AMD saying it would support it over a year ago.

    something to do with the hbm, it also poses issues for opengl applications.

    Yeah that was my first thought when I read the change logs for 19.8.1 too, sh*tstorm incoming... :p

    I don't personally suffer from it as I only watch Netflix through the app on my TV at this point but that doesn't mean it's a reasonable state of affairs.

    I watch NF on my 3440x1440 monitor with my VEGA64 Red Devil just fine, I didn't know 4K was an issue though.

    Nothing is understood from the article:
    1. Do I need a special browser?
    Will it work in chrome, Mozilla?

    2. How many MB can it transfer?

    3. This 4K YouTube 65MBPS + HDR Will it transfer this file?

    4. This bottleneck is in the browser, and not understand what can move? Including HDR?

    you need the netflix app or edge (spartan or chromium)

    netflix app is the only way to get multichannel pcm and bitstream audio.
