  • Hi mamsafras

    How do you notice that your Youtube HDR doesn't work properly?

    Kindly refer to the screenshot below as the Youtube videosettings of my device in firmware version WW-16.0420.2009.39 with Youtube version 15.50.35.

    If you do not have the HDR in Youtube video setting, kindly try

    (1) update the Youtube to the latest version

    (2) Long press Youtube icon>App info icon>Storage & memory>Clear storage/Clear cache>Force stop>Disable>Enable

    (3) Also, please try "the Factory Reset" 

    Settings>System>Reset options>Erase all data(factory reset)

    Please note that once the Factory Reset is completed, all data, apps, settings and personal information will be deleted.
