    How to see and hear HDR + YouTube + NVIDIA+Samsung Screen 65 "Q9FN + Questions

    I watched the HDR in chrome and did not like the quality!
    Until I was taught here how to watch HDR
    https://bit.ly/2S6HGrH

    to see HDR YouTube 4K60FPS ~ 80mb
    I need a browser Edge + NVIDIA video card like 1050TI and Above

    i am trying to watch HDR on EDGE + open HDR Driver in the win 10 ! In front of chrome > EDGE win
    sharper picture
    Excellent screen movement

    It is unclear why the sound in a home theater system 6500 denon is so much better with edge than Chrome .
    I expected to see better, but hear much better?
    It's lucky ? and on youtube ?


    Questions:
    Does NVIDIA GPU have PlayReady 3.0?
    why not Chrome? Mozilla? Opera? Why don't they have a suitable driver?

    yes.


    No other browser has a widevine implementation that includes a hardware port.

    I've noticed Edge is really good for playing HDR content as well. Chrome did it well also, but I stopped using Chrome a while back so I can't comment on that anymore. For now if I want to view HDR Youtube I dust off Edge and use that.

    I just wish HDR implementation would evolve to where we didn't have to use specific browsers or switch Windows HDR "on" and the content would just play correctly when viewing from an HDR screen.. however I know that's probably not a simple or feasible solution at the moment. One can only wish..

    I'm not sure if it is still the case but Netflix specifically said you need Edge + Intel (Kaby Lake 7th gen or newer) to watch their 4k HDR content on PC (because DRM). Microsoft also specifically applies the "HDR enabled" setting to Edge for Youtube+Netflix (other browsers either don't check if you have HDR on, or havent built support for it yet).

    Google probably just doesn't care about HDR in Chrome. I would guess that the percentage of users who have 4k HDR screens connected to their PC is too low for them to bother.

    it is still the case that edge or the netflix app are the only ones supporting netflix 4k

    but geforce cards can now be used in place of intel igp's.

    I tried the netflix app a while back and it was outputting 4k HDR via 2080ti. From what i remember there was a lot of banding so I just use the TV app now (also better for DV support). I imagine the banding has been fixed as I tested this late 2018.

    True High Dynamic Range itself doesn't play a part in anything audio. Audio is a separate process.

    The TV has to support HDR 10bit or 10bit+ gamut as does the source material being played back on a device that also supports it....whether Blu-Ray or streaming, etc.

    Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos (not source dependent), HDR10/HLG, THX Select/Ultra, IMAX Enhanced, DTS X, etc, etc. will yield the most intense experience....providing you have a receiver, Atmos height spkrs, Blu-Ray Player w/ those features, THX Speakers (or not) and source material to playback.

    I have my Onkyo TX-RZ1100 hooked up to my 65" QDOT screen and PC and whoa!! Klipsch speakers and other goodies make for a kick booty gaming experience....especially when you set the receiver to THX Gaming mode or other DSP enhanced Gaming mode.
