Playing "home made" HDR content on the B7?
I have recently started creating videos on a camera with a 10 bit logarithmic output. I use an Atomos Ninja V recorder attached to it and save the file. The file is not ready for viewing, it must be graded to appear properly. Once graded, it has a large dynamic range that might look great on the B7 if viewed in HDR. I can create an output file in an mp4 or mkv container and place that on a USB flash drive. I would then like to plug the USB flash drive into my B7 and view the file. The grading program (DaVinci Resolve) can make HDR videos, but so far when I put the USB flash drive in the B7 and play the file through photos and videos, I get sound but no picture. I might add that I am using H.264 10 bit as the codec, which I suspect the B7 does not like.
Before I go too far in trying to understand what I might be doing wrong in preparing the HDR video, I hope to find out if anyone has had success in viewing HDR material through the USB input. Has anyone succeeded in using the USB input for HDR viewing? Or does the B7 only look for HDR on streaming and HDMI inputs?
Has anyone ever created their own HDR content and successfully viewed it in any manner on the any of these LG OLED models? Any suggestions?
