This is what they said about Kodi 18.3:\n\n"Kodi’s team focused on improving the playback of 4K and 8K videos, supporting technologies like HDR and more. And there’s now even broader support for various codecs. To make sure all of these features run fine, Kodi has been optimized to take full advantage of your CPU\/GPU, which should bring improvements across different platforms and devices."\n\nhttps:\/\/www.technadu.com\/kodi-18-leia\/52632\/\n\nBut I guess they are mainly talking about non-Windows?\n\nMaybe. I tested an HDR video on my PC monitor and their improvements do help quite a lot so in that instance DS player isn't necessary. I'd have to test again to see if they've got HDR switching with Windows working properly. It's MS fault, not Kodi. I guess the guy that does madVR was able to focus on that aspect more than the Kodi devs. I'm sure those guys are VERY busy with all the different platforms they support.\n\nHDR switching works perfectly on Android TV. Lots less of a headache than using Windows. Libreelec is also really good, but linux doesn't support HDR yet and apparently nVidia doesn't help with GPU decoding. Development has stopped I guess. So that meant my hardware wouldn't work for what I needed it to.\n\nHTPCs are a pain.
