Hi, What's your Windows 10 version? Google chrome previously had a flag called "-enable-HDR" but it's removed now because Google Chrome now officially supports HDR, if you happen to be using an older version of Chrome then you might wanna try enabling that flag manually.
as for Edge insider, on Canary there is no flag for HDR so i assume it's being supported by default..
I'm using Windows 10 1903, so the latest stable version. As far as I could understand, Chrome needs the WCG in apps support as well, and thus the new Chroium based Edge needs that as well. However that didn't use to be the case with the old Edge, as that could easily play HDR YouTube videos with only HDR video streaming support.
Yes i also assume app support is a requirement for browsers because they are an app. I'm not sure how classic Edge handled it but apparently Chromium is not compatible. do you happen to know which piece of hardware in your laptop is the bottleneck ?
@HotCakeX I'm not sure which part is the bottleneck, but if I had to guess, I would say that it's the GPU. It's a laptop with integrated components: - CPU: Intel Core i7-7600U - GPU: Intel HD Graphics 620
- Display: integrated HDR capable display
However the old Edge could clearly do HDR streaming and thus I consider this a regression. It would be great if the new Edge team brought the necessary changes to the new browser.
