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 or Dolby Vision videos, be sure to allow extra time for your video to fully transcode to be available in Dolby Vision.

Supported Viewing Environments
To watch an HDR video, you’ll need to have an HDR10 supported screen. Likewise, to view a Dolby Vision video, you will need a device that supports Dolby Vision. Consult the documentation from your manufacturer to confirm the capabilities of your viewing hardware.
If you are viewing from an environment that does not support HDR10, HDR10+, or Dolby Vision, our player will deliver wide color gamut (increased color) playback files. For devices that do not support advanced color technologies in any capacity, we’ll automatically default to standard SDR playback.

- Supported Mac devices are listed by Apple at: Play HDR video on Mac
- Apple TV 4K and above (connected to an HDR10-supported TV or monitor and while being casted to).
