HDR on XZ1

I can´t watch HDR content on Youtube on my brand new XZ1, the resolution option doesn´t have HDR avalible.

Even on Netflix if i choose HDR content i don´t get the HDR effect.

What is wrong? 

Does anyone else have this problem?

@TobbeSwe I don't know about Netflix but on YouTube only selected videos have the HDR option.

Re: HDR on XZ1

@TobbeSwe just to make sure we're on the same page: you don't have HDR option in this video? https://youtu.be/tO01J-M3g0U

 

also, what's the installed version of Youtube app on your phone?

We worked closely with YouTube's engineering team the last few months to provide this HDR video of some of our favorite and some of our unseen footage from the the last 3 years. If you don't have an HDR display no worries, YouTube will automatically detect which type of display you are watching ...

Re: HDR on XZ1

@TobbeSwehmmm that's weird, it should show the HDR option. I'm not sure how to fix it.

 

what if you go to Settings > Apps > Youtube > Storage > Clear data and check again?

I've tried that too without luck =/

I don't know what's wrong. Do you have a xz1 and get the hdr logo with that clip?

Re: HDR on XZ1

Hi

IMHO I think that YouTube plays videos directly in hdr mode. You don't have an option to play 1080p 60 hdr.

I have compared the video posted here  in a XZ1, iPhone 7 and iPad Pro and the colors on XZ1 are more vivid and in some scenes (island, eiffel tower..) the blues are more shiny and colorful.

Re: HDR on XZ1

@juancuboI don't think that's true, Youtube app does say "HDR" next to the video quality when the video is recorded in HDR.
