Hi all,

I am completely out of ideas. I cannot for the life of me figure out what Dolby Vision profiles are supported on my 14" MacBook Pro. Profile 5 works but only after I have put it through Subler. But when trying to stream it over Chrome (or Safari for that matter) it won't work.

But the biggest problem is Profile 8 (dvhe.08.06 specifically). Since this also has HDR10 I have absolutely no clue at all if it's playing back Dolby Vision or HDR10. How does Apple not provide an easy way to check? TV's give a small pop-up, that's all I need.

I am aware of what Apple Support says, but I also watch content, not in Apple TV which doesn't have little indicator
