Streaming whilst gaming in HDR

Post by xreyuk » 10 Jan 2022, 14:50

Hi All,

I want to stream on a one PC setup with no capture card, however I like to game in HDR. From what I can see, applications like OBS don't support this and make the stream look absolutely awful.

The only streaming app I've found that can do it is Action! but the quality of their encoding is not very good, and they don't support overlays very well.

Is there anyway I can get HDR working with something like OBS?

Unfortunately there's very few options (yet).
You may wish to use the Discord channel and discuss streaming there --
You should post in the OBS forum asking for HDR support. And bump the existing OBS issue (if it's on a github somewhere).
The developers out there needs to be aware.
