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

DVDFab Media Player v.3 uses private API's and properly switches HDR on/off with no problems.  V.5 no longer uses private API's afaik.  I tried again after todays latest update fwiw.  You can either manually turn HDR on/off in Windows or leave it off and let v.5 convert HDR to SDR automatically.  I've also noticed frame drops using v.5.  Check your setup.

Unless you meet all the hardware requirements for PowerDVD, you're spinning your wheels attempting HDR.

Yes, I use madVR to control resolution switches.  Assuming you're using a 4k display, everything is set to 4k - nothing 1080p.

All of this is detailed in the guide.
 Hi

I have tried MPC-BE and HDR does works - with AMD i needed MadVR fullscreen exclusive to get it to work.
And with the help of your nicely set up playercorefactory and bat-files Kodi also launches the MPC.

The only catch here is that after MPC or MadVR changes the screen resolution from my standard 1080p desktop to 2160p the video runs in top left corner in a 1080p sized section of the screen - so no full screen and no HDR.
The work around for that is to set MPC to change resolution via "automatic fullscreen" option and only enable 2160p at 24hz - however with this workaround the resolution doesn't switch back to 1080p after playback via MPC end - even though I ticked the checkbox "restore resolution on exit".

Anyone had such an issue before? It ruins my WAF for the setup :-)

Edit:
I think I fixed it by:
making only my 2160p resolution available in MPC and un-ticking return to standard resolution - somehow after the change to 2160p this was deemed "defaullt" and not my 1080p. So for now everything is ok, the only issue is that HDR never works on the 1st try after a reboot, but well if thats the only issue thats ok.
