Can’t find an app that can play HDR video smoothly on iPhone XS Max
Okay so the title is a bit misleading because I mean 4k HDR video, specifically. Let me explain before I get downvoted to shit. I know 4k is overkill on this screen, but virtually all HDR media that I um… legally download is only available in 4k.
Unsurprisingly, VLC does the best, but playback still gets choppy every few seconds. The movie I’m trying to watch is 18 GB and around 2 hours long, so the bit rate shouldn’t be too extreme. When it’s not lagging it looks incredible. 🙁
Shouldn’t the phone be able to handle this easily due to HEVC hardware decoding? Is this just a problem with the apps? Confused.
