I have a wide gamut monitor with a correctly generated ICC profile which aresults in nice non over-saturated colors. This works quite well with Chrome but up to now there was no monitor profile support for Edge. When I saw that Chromium is used in the brackground in the new preview builds  I thought that this would also work now in Edge. Sadly it is still not honoring my monitor profile. Especially with netflix this results in highly oversaturated colors. 

 

Can you please take into consideration to honor the currently selected ICC profile for the monitor in edge as well? 

 

Update: Sorry if I was not clear enough. ICC profiles are apparently honored with standard websites but video playback is not color managed.

What I think is happening here is that in the background Edge is still using a windows internal playback engine while Chrome uses something different. So in the end it is not an Edge issue per se but another component is missing this functionality right now.
