Hi all

Just received my iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) and wondering how to know if HDR is enabled when playing content in Infuse and Netflix.

Netflix is mentioning Dolby Vision for many content, which I assume also included HDR.

But if I play HDR content in Infuse, how do I know that HDR is enabled?

When playing HDR content on my Samsung TV, I was always able to tell as the backlight was always automatically cranked up to max.

The iPad doesn't automatically increase the brightness/backlight, which means I am never sure. Smile

There isn’t any way to tell other than noticing a visual difference.

HDR videos are always played in HDR mode, if HDR is supported on your device.

If your device doesn't support HDR, it will display the best picture your device will allow.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

Is there no way to find out from the UI if the file has HDR? (like when you see the video details prior and see thats its a 4K mkv for example) Would be great if you can put an HDR logo of some sort to show that the video is actually HDR.

There's a currently running thread in suggestions that you may want to add your support to on the very request.

There will be a wash-out screening when HDR to SDR tone-mapping fails
