Stream HDR video on Windows 10

Velja za: Windows 10

You’ll be able to play streaming high dynamic range (HDR) video when your Windows 10 device has a display that’s optimized for HDR video and you have Stream HDR video turned on in Windows HD Color settings.

To find out if a display is optimized for HDR video

  1. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Apps  > Video playback .
  2. Under Stream HDR video, select Windows HD Color settings.
  3. Under Choose display, select the display you want to check.
  4. Under Display capabilities, look for the value next to Stream HDR video to see if it says Yes or No.
    Even if it says Yes for Stream HDR video, you might need to change some other settings to play streaming HDR video. See the last section below for details. 

For more detailed info about what you need to play HDR video in Windows, see Display requirements for HDR video in Windows 10.

To turn on HDR video streaming

  1. Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Apps  > Video playback .
  2. Under Stream HDR video, select Windows HD Color settings.
  3. Under Choose display, select the display you want to change.
  4. If it's an external display, turn on Play HDR games and apps.
  5. Turn on Stream HDR video.

If your built-in display can play streaming HDR video, you can calibrate it to get the most out of it. For more info, see Calibrate your built-in display for HDR content in Windows 10.

If you have Stream HDR video turned on and you notice you’re still not getting HDR video on your built-in display, check to make sure that:

  • You're using a supported app. Streaming HDR video is supported only in certain apps. For more info, see Video playback settings in Windows 10.
  • The streaming video app is playing full screen. On many built-in displays, you won't get HDR video if the video app isn't open full screen.
  • You have set up your device to play HDR video on battery. Because playing HDR video uses more battery power, you won’t get HDR video by default if you’re on battery. To change this, select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Apps  > Video playback  > Windows HD Color settings. Under Battery options, clear the Don’t allow streaming HDR video on battery check box.
  • Battery saver is turned off. To find out if battery saver is turned on or off, select the Start  button, then Settings  > System  > Battery . If you want the best HDR video experience even when battery saver is turned on, clear the Lower screen brightness while in battery saver check box on that same Battery screen. For the best HDR video experience, Windows needs to be able to set your display to the maximum brightness level.
  • You restart the video. After you make the changes above, restart the video you’re trying to watch to get it in HDR.
