Re: youtube HDR

I beleive the chip in the XG1v4 is not capable of displaying YouTube in the HDR mode.  Only the Xi6 has the capability of displaying YouTube in the HDR mode.

Re: youtube HDR

Thought of that to , i know the xi6 has a better chip set but why support HDR on Prime video & Netflix & not Youtube.I also thought that the app needed updating, whats so different with the Youtube app.

Re: youtube HDR

YouTube uses a different codec to produce HDR which requires a more powerful chip. Early Sony 4K HDR sets also cannot do YouTube HDR.
