HDR offers a wider range for your content and lets screens that support it display darker shadows and brighter highlights. If you are a creator and want to stream live in HDR, you need to follow these steps.

  • Use a compatible encoder.
  • Use a camera that supports HDR video with either the PQ or HLG colour standards. Check your camera’s manual to see if these standards are supported.

On the other hands, viewers will need compatible devices to watch live streams in HDR. Here are the supported HDR devices.

  • The YouTube app on HDR TVs.
  • Casting to Chromecast Ultra devices connected to HDR TVs.
  • Android-based mobile devices with an HDR display.
  • Windows and Mac PCs with HDR graphics support and an HDR display. Viewers will see your stream in HDR if they have HDR enabled in their computer’s settings.

Unfortunately, if your device is not HDR supported, you will not be able to watch it in HDR, instead, you will get it in SDR.
