I haven't seen this posted, but I have the most updated version of Youtube on my iPhone X and I watched an HDR video last night, it was labeled as HDR, but it looked pretty normal for a youtube video, but, last night I noticed, wow the colors looked so much better, then I checked the quality settings and I noticed, it's only up to 1080p, but, the Youtube app now lets the iPhone X playback HDR videos in HDR, tested it on numerous and they all looked great one after another. Just thought I'd share that with everyone.

Yeah- shoot some of your own vids at 60 fps too. You'll see it looks so much nicer than 30 fps

When you go on 'stats for nerds' on one of these videos, is it in the VP9 codec?
