Dolby Vision support


Recommended Posts

frk1337

The MKV standard was updated to properly support Dolby Vision and Plex has recently released support for it.

I strongly dislike Plex (the performance is abysmal) and prefer Emby for 99% of the time, but DV support is really nice.

Is there an ETA for Emby (on Android/Android TV and maybe iOS/tVOS) to support Dolby Vision in mkv?

I use a Shield TV 2019 atm (and will get the new Apple TV 2020 4K when it get's released) and prefer DV to HDR10 (on my OLED LG).

You can try the ET for Android beta app which has the new Exoplayer  Just sideload the apk in the first post of the link below and it's a separate app so you can have ET and ATV on your Shield at the same time.

Diese Version crashed auf der Nvidia Shield sobald irgendeine Form von HDR Content abgespielt werden soll.

What formats?  I'm playing a mkv Dolby Vision movie right now.  You may want to post in the beta section

ebr also mentioned something about he may add the new Exoplayer with DV into the next round of beta for ATV.

Which version of the app?  You will probably need to send the logs to Luke

Also, if you update to the latest mediainfo app it will show the Dolby Vision information when present like below.

I am an Android TV User on LG CX over Shield 2019. The Android TV App is more suitable for TV App, so will there be an Dolby Vision Update for the ExoPlayer like Plex?

That would be great, and I am switching Plex off.

Hi.  Yes.  We are currently waiting on Amazon to catch up to Google.

Can you add the DV version of Exoplayer that @Luke has developed to the ATV app for Google based devices in the meantime please?

Or is that not possible yet? 

Thanks.

Sorry, no it just isn't that simple.  If Amazon doesn't move this week, I'll take an alternate path.

Try this, works for me in ATV as an external player

Works fine for DV. The player appearance is a bit simple...

When I play files with DV and DTS, DTS is not automatically transcoded to AC3 since I deactivated it on Shield. LG CX has no DTS passthrough and Sonos doesn't support DTS. 

But this should be fixed in the next release according to the moderators.

Could you fix this problem temporarily in this player you posted?
