YouTube has announced that it’s added in support for High Dynamic Range (HDR)

This means if you’re hooking up your PC to an HDR-enabled monitor, you’ll see videos in much better contrast.

THE SAME GOES FOR OTHER HDR* ENABLED DEVICES SUCH AS THE CHROMECAST ULTRA

The same goes for other HDR-enabled devices such as the Chromecast Ultra. All 2016 Samsung SUHD and UHD TVs will also have the app built in. YouTube previously announced an HDR player will make its way to PS4 soon, though that’s yet to be released.

TO KICK THINGS OFF, THE COMPANY HAS PARTNERED WITH A NUMBER 

To kick things off, the company has partnered with a number of creators to produce HDR content. Anyone can upload HDR videos, however, and YouTube said it wanted the process to be as easy uploading a regular video.

If you don’t have HDR-capable devices, HDR videos on YouTube will simply play in SDR without the need to tick any specific settings.
