YouTube adds support for HDR videos

Today, YouTube has announced it has added support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos. If you didn’t know what HDR is, it allows videos to have a higher contrast with a wide colour gamut for a more detailed shadows, image vibrancy and clarity.

If you have a supported TV or device, you can start streaming YouTube video in HDR now. Creators can also start uploading HDR content from today. YouTube has released a tutorial on how to upload HDR videos here.


This week, Sony is also releasing the PlayStation 4 Pro which supports HDR and with many devices support HDR content – we’ll soon see mainstream TVs and Monitors support the technology.
