Plex HTPC – Setup and Tips for HDR, Lossless Audio, & More!

Sign up for a Plex Pass: http://lon.tv/plexpass – Plex recently made their home theater PC (HTPC) client official and we’ll take a look at its features and settings in this video. It supports HDR switching and lossless audio passthrough! More HDR info is below in the rest of the description. See more Plex: http://lon.tv/plexhdhr and subscribe! http://lon.tv/s

Additional HDR info from the Plex team:
HDR10: This works when using Windows. MPV creates a Rec.2020 swapchain in D3D11, which outputs to the display. There is a switch in HTPC’s settings to switch the display from SDR – HDR when you play HDR content.

HDR10 with Static Metadata Passthrough: One of the users in the forums has done a writeup on how to use some of the more experimental features of MPV to do HDR10 with static metadata passthrough. So the maxCLL and maxFall values from the content are sent through to the display. See https://forums.plex.tv/t/hdr-metadata-passthrough-plex-htpc-for-windows/794358 for more information.
