YouTube Adding Support For HDR Videos On YouTube

YouTube has announced support for HDR videos. As of yesterday, you can start uploading your HDR videos to YouTube. The company also says that it has worked with content creators like MysteryGuitarMan and Abandon Visuals to bring you HDR videos like the one I've embedded below.

Starting today, you can watch YouTube videos in HDR on supported devices, such as HDR TVs with the new Chromecast Ultra, and soon on all 2016 Samsung SUHD and UHD TVs. If you're using a device that doesn't yet support HDR, don't worry, videos will still play in standard dynamic range. As more HDR devices become available, YouTube will work with partners to enable streaming of the HDR version.
