HDR videos will be marked with an HDR badge in the player or on the video page. Videos created and uploaded in Dolby Vision will be marked with a Dolby Vision badge.
⚠️Note: Due to the many layers of transcoding that take place with HDR formats such as Dolby Vision, lower qualities of a video will be available first while additional transcoding takes place in the background. If you are uploading HDR10, HDR10+, or Dolby Vision videos, be sure to allow extra time for all of the renditions to be available.

Supported Viewing Environments
As long as HEVC is available and you have a compatible display, HDR and Dolby Vision videos should be playable. You can check this site to verify if your browser supports HEVC: caniuse.com/hevc.
If you are viewing from an environment that does not support HDR10, HDR10+, or Dolby Vision we’ll automatically default to standard SDR playback.
If your display supports HDR and has HDR enabled you will be able to view HDR renditions, regardless of the HDR type. If your display does not support dynamic HDR or does not support the same version as the video, it will be displayed using static HDR metadata.
