Where form meets function

Beginning today, you can watch YouTube videos in HDR (High Dynamic Range) on supported devices, as well as upload HDR videos to YouTube.

HDR videos have higher contrast, revealing precise, detailed shadows and stunning highlights with more clarity, equating to the most spectacular image quality ever streamed.

You must have an HDR-supported device to view, however, but if you’re without, the videos will simply play in standard dynamic range. As more HDR devices become available, YouTube will in turn work with partners to enable streaming of the HDR version.

For some great HDR content you can go ahead and enjoy, YouTube has teamed up with MysteryGuitarMan, Jacob + Katie Schwarz (featured above) and Abandon Visuals. You can watch a few of the example videos below.

Again, you yourself can also start uploading HDR videos today.
