Microsoft Store version vs current playing HEVC HDR10theater HEVC mpv

Already aware of that - The store version using the internal player plays fine and 3.0.5 using mpv does not. Is it at all possible to re-implement the internal player, assuming this is not a Microsoft specific change to the code base?
Problem is that in all cases except for this, mpv is far and away the better player. It would be better to see if we can figure out how to have mpv use the windows decoder.

doofus, is there no way to have mpv use the windows hardware decoder?
The mpv guys explained that to pass the HDR metadata, there is a windows swapchain that needs to be used. So until they get that done, we're stuck with how it is. I posted a link earlier with what jeeb is doing with that. But there's been no development for several months.

The Nvidia 1050Ti that I had ordered has arrived and is now installed. The LG HDR file is playing OK on 3.0.5 through mpv, but subjectively slightly juddery compared to the store version using the internal player (blind tested by family members!). PLayback is HDR10 on Ctrl-J. The HDR indicator on the TV is only shown when HDR is enabled on the desktop. As Doofus said above, mpv does not as yet send the HDR metadata to the TV, and neither does the internal player.
