Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players

Hi

I do have an Intel based HTPC and i used it to playback all my stuff trough Kodi.
After some issues with the afedchin build and the lack of HDR capabilities i came across your guide to achieve 3D MVC and 4K HDR playback correctly.

If i understood all that i read correctly i do need the following for perfect 2D, 3D MVC and 4K HDR playback.
- Nvidia graphics card
- lav filter
- mad vr
- mpc be

As I'm a little unsure about please let me ask some questions
- will kodi automatically invoke the external player if an 4k HDR mkv is selected?
- is the Gainward GeForce GT 1030 SilentFX (2GB HDMI 2.0b HDCP2.2) sufficient for flawless 3D and 4K HDR playback?
- if i set the resolution to 3840*2160 as default for kodi and windows all will be upscaled but will it autoswitch colorspace for UHD and non UHD content?
- will 3D MVC playback autoswitch resolution to 1080p?

Thanks in Advance
Juras
Yes, to everything you asked except your GPU.  The 1030 2GB is not strong enough for UHD x265 rips but is probably sufficient for everything else.  I don't think it meets the minimum requirements for subscription streaming such as Netflix HDR either.  For flawless playback of anything, I recommend a 4GB or higher model beginning with inexpensive GTX 960 ( I use) or GTX 1050Ti (positive feedback).  I would also consider full size dual fan models but it is not a requirement.  Also be prepared to use W8 or W10 with or without Creators Updates (I use the latest Fall Creators Update, FCU).
