4K HDR10 - State of Play thread - important media player limitations.
Yup

"Intel Windows 7 or latter and a Nvidia or AMD GPU with 2GB of VRAM and 10bit HEVC hardware decoding + Kodi DSPlayer build (Jarvis or Krypton)"

Can you change this to:

"Microsoft Windows 7 or later with a Nvidia or AMD GPU that supports 10-bit HEVC hardware decoding + Kodi DSPlayer build (Jarvis or Krypton). For HDR10 content alone: Any official Kodi Windows build combined with an external media player that supports madVR, such as Media Player Classic."

You also have an extra bullet at the top of your post that doesn't need to be there.

Thx, updated Smile

EDIT Just clarifying what HDR10 content alone means ?
Is this just a standard Windows Kodi + external player mentioned running on Intel compatible HDR10 capable hardware ?

LOL
I did not know first person shooters had 3D bullets that emanated that far from the TV screen !
Bullet proof vest time !

Yes, the first part is correct.

The "2GB of VRAM" does not need to be there. The best and close to cheapest option is an AMD Ryzen 5 2400G, which doesn't have any VRAM. Also, there is no current gen GPU with less than 2GB of VRAM.

And "latter" should be "later."

And any self experience or some HTPC tests with the 2400G yet? How does it hold up with some MadVR enhancing and quality SD->FHA, SD->4K, FHD->4K up and 4K->FHD downscalling? MadVR would surely utilize some good and fast memory/VRAM for anything above lowest settings.

I've bought a 2400G to get 4K HDR feature on my TV.
I'm running on debian testing with the lasted kodi compiled.
still can't get HDR detected by the TV. is it a way to findout

let me know if you want me to run some test.

I'm not familiar with Linux, but as far as I know HDR is still not implemented in the Linux kerner, so there's still no way to play HDR content on Linux. I guess it's still the same with Libre Elec. So the only viable way yet is still Win10+MPCHC (or DSPlayer)+MadVR. And I have read recently that the latest KODI Leia version (still beta) also can play now HDR, but also only on Windows.

 You wouldn't want to do any 4K -> 1080p downscaling of 10-bit content with HDR tone mapping. It works fine for native 4K 30 fps content, as good as the GT 1030. Only the most basic settings apply in both cases when it comes to any upscaling.

But you can do evaluable 4K->FHD downscaling along with HDR->SDR conversion. And there are also lots of originally 4K/SDR materials as well that look in many cases better on a FHD display than the FHD version, if decent downcalling happens. But I guess this latter would be the less resource demanding.

 Yes - high-quality downscaling is non-trivial, as you have to filter out alias artefacts.

i have found that the formuler z7+ plays every file that i have "found" (*cough* mouse click internet discount *cough*) , on it in HDR if the file should be i.e. 4k files...  . do not know if it passes all of the audio versions ... i do not know of a way to prove it, just that the audio plays...... (but it plays the "HEVC.DTS-HD.MA.TrueHD.7.1.Atmos" files, whereas the ruko ultra, does not and defaults to ac3 i think)
also the dreamlink t2 plays 4k HDR, but it stutters so it is moot point.

Why Ryzen 2400G is marked as best HDR capable CPU for x86 and not 2200G?

The extra power is useful for 4K media on Windows. The GT 1030 is probably on the same level.

Hi,

Browsing the thread, I am right in thinking that there is still no 4k hdr10 player with correct switching of frame rate and atmos etc pass through? I have an Intel nuc that I am pleased with - do the newer ones not support the above?

Thanks in advance
