To play streaming high dynamic range (HDR) video in Windows 10, the built-in display for your laptop, tablet, or 2-in-1 PC needs to support HDR. To find the specifications for a specific laptop or tablet, visit the device manufacturer’s website. Here are the requirements:
- The built-in display needs to able to display 300 nits or more.
- The Windows 10 device needs to have an integrated graphics card that supports PlayReady hardware digital rights management (for protected HDR content), and it must have the required codecs installed for 10-bit video decoding. (For example, devices that have a 7th Generation Intel Core processor, code-named Kaby Lake, support this.)
- The Windows 10 device manufacturer needs to have enabled HDR on the device.
