Turn On or Off HDR Video Streaming in Windows 11

HDR content offers better brightness and color capabilities compared to traditional content (sometimes called standard dynamic range [SDR] content). Traditional content typically shows details in a bright part of a scene or a darker part of a scene but not in both parts at the same time. For example, if the shot focuses on a bright window in the scene, details in the shadow are lost.

Whereas HDR can show a wider range of colors and light and more details in between the extremes. Colors are more vivid and unique in HDR content. Additionally, bright parts of a scene are brighter while dark parts can be darker, and you don’t lose any details.

You will be able to play streaming high dynamic range (HDR) video when your Windows PC has a display that’s optimized for HDR video and you have HDR video streaming turned on.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off HDR video streaming in Windows 11.
