4K video playback - Kodi 17 vs 18 - Extreme difference (Some good, some bad) - Why?
#1
Hi all,

I tried playing 4K movies on my new Samsung 75" NU8000 TV with Kodi 17 vs Kodi 18 thinking "meh, probably won't be much difference".
There is a HUGE difference. The problem is - It's inconsistent.

More specifically, I played 2 movies:
Terminator II - Judgement Day:
On Kodi 17.6 Krypton (From windows store): Doesn't look all that good. The colors are, I don't know, faded?
On Kodi 18 preAlpha2 release: Looks AMAZING, vivid, incredible!

Here are screenshots for comparison:

The Matrix:
On Kodi 17.6 Krypton (From windows store): Looks fine, maybe a bit faded.
On Kodi 18 preAlpha2 release: Looks HORRIBLE! The colors are just bad, and way too dark. Unwatchable!

So my question is WHY? What is this huge difference? And can you give me some advice on how to tweak everything so I can watch it all like Terminator II looks on Kodi 18 preAlpha2 release (If that's even possible). I don't want to have to check 10 different players and 2 versions of Kodi every time I wanna watch a movie in the best way possible Smile 

As required from every post, here is my System Information
Following are the logs:
Kodi 17.6 - The Matrix
Kodi 18 - The Matrix

Kodi 17.6 - Terminator II​​​
Kodi 18 - Terminator II

Terminator II - MediaInfo
The Matrix - MediaInfo

Please tell me if there is any additional information I can provide! I really want to solve this and I think it will help others in the future.

Thanks a lot in advance!!
