Intel true 10bits/HEVC/HDR support... ?

  • Hi,


    I'm close to pulling the trigger on a j4105 board and have been checking on this thread periodically.


    Anyone know if there have been any updates to HDR in Linux and Kodi? Looks like kernel 5.3 has been released so it might already be useable?


    Also, reading through this thread, it seems that the j4105 will be supported in regards to HDR? It has a UHD Graphics 600 (Gen 9.5 LP GT1 up to 700MHz) GPU.


    Thanks

  • I live in the belief that at least UHD 620 is required for HDR 10.

  • and the j5005 ? No hdr is hdr support yes/or no

  • I am also desperately interested in HDR support. Just out of interest: what is missing currently? Is it Intel driver? Kernel adaptions? Kodi adaptions?

  • I saw a post (can’t find it now) saying Matrix will be released without HDR support. HDR will be added not too far after that apparently. Reason was to get Matrix out earlier, so add-on developers need support Python 3 earlier.

  • Correct. Kodi v19 release has been reshaped into an interim release to force/kick-start the Python3 transition and bigger-ticket items like HDR and GBM/V4L2 support will shift to Kodi v20 .. hopefully on something close to the original v19 schedule (not that Kodi ever does formal scheduling).

  • I compiled a build with working HDR from Kwiboo 's work-in-progress branch. Tested on a Gemini Lake J4105 and Samsung 4K TV. In order for HDR to work go to Settings-->Player and enable "Allow hardware acceleration - PRIME".

    Hi,


    I know I'm not on the subject of this thread and I apologize, but...

    can I ask you the courtesy to tell me if I can apply the patches (and how) for kodi running in linux without librelec?

    I already have a small server (nuc J5005) with ubuntu server 19.10 installed and I would like to install the kodi version with hdr


    thanks for your help

  • Yes, if you know how to self-compile Kodi .. but if you knew how to self-compile Kodi you wouldn't be asking the question :)


    Once HDR support is fully baked (right now it is far from) nightlies for Ubuntu will be available from the official Ubuntu PPA.

    Hi,


    I thank you for the answer, I have no problems to compile by hand is just that I've been out of the loop for quite a while and now I finally see that Kodi has almost reached the support for HDR.

    If you can give me some private information I would thank you very much...


    thanks

    Oh... Do you perhaps know something we don't?

    That doesn't sound like HDR support is right around the corner.
