Vegetaholic, 05 Oct 2020What a piece of garbage is Apple TV, even phones can play HDR youtube videos, unacceptable.Shameless company is at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to innovation.

Android.Master, 05 Oct 2020Have you never heard of higher resolution video downscaled to lower resolution screen looking ... moreIt is not video games and there is no such a thing as downscaling in videos, if you don't have 8k scree you will not see any quzlity improvements in 1080p screen watching 8k video, you need 8k screen to see full glory
Android.Master, 05 Oct 2020You don't need 8k TV to play an 8k video. No, but you need 8k screen support to see quality it in full glory. If you watch on lower res screens you see no goins in quality

Anonymous, 05 Oct 2020What's the point in watching an 8K video on a non 8K display? Have you never heard of higher resolution video downscaled to lower resolution screen looking better?
Like in gaming on PC, games running at 1440p, downscaled on to a 1080p screen look better than games running at 1080p on 1080p screen.

As for all I know Samsung, Panasonic and LG don't run android. In fact I only know Sony does and the UI experience is the worst.

Now they are the OS of choice on Smart TVs as well.
Where are the people who say apps are optimized on iOS?
Didn't realize so many people are still falling for the "optimised OS" marketing.
Social Media apps on iOS are leading the crash report charts.
YouTube is a pretty widely used app as well which didn't offer highest resolution in the past.
Olym1mk2, 04 Oct 2020You do know that the box, is only as good as the TV itself. Oh, I guess not. I have an lg C9. I wanted to get the most out of it. (in case you are not aware is amongst the best tvs out there). Literally everyone and online and in person said Apple TV is the best way. Even if it has the apple TV+ app installed.

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020You are the one who bought an ipad tho not me.Yeah, I know, I often feel tortured by Apple software ... not a fan of that through.
Fearghast, 04 Oct 2020Really? Oh, talk about Apple doing what it does best :D torture its costumers.You are the one who bought an ipad tho not me.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020Why I can play 4k video on my Samsung TV ?(YouTube)Samsung already has the support for the android phones and use the same CPU architecture. So why not? Also a TV is a place where u are expected to watch youtube.
Now for apple to develop a chip that can specifically decode a codec only used by one app for 4K makes no sense. It's not just apple.
Nvidia and AMD don't support it either so you are using your CPU to watch it and if u have any intel skylake or earlier it doesn't support it either.
Neither does Internet explorer (regardless of why u'd want to use it).
Netflix at some point used VP9 but also streamed at HVEC for devices that don't support it which is not just apple even some Samsung devices don't support it (the option is there but video playback is poor. Galaxy s7, tab s4 etc).
Just google "android youtube 4k hdr not working" and you will be surprised by how many devices can't play 4K or HDR.
So Google here is pulling an Apple and using an inferior and proprietary format.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2020The codec is free.Really? Oh, talk about Apple doing what it does best :D torture its costumers.
