Does Windows 10 and MadVR support Dolby Vision?

How am I supposed to play dolby vision encoded files in mp4 or mkv in windows 10 using madVR? And dolby vision encoded 4k blu rays through my 4k blu ray writer?
I can only get windows 10 and MadVR (using MPC-HC) to output basic HDR10, i dont want that, i want dolby vision output. How?
Output video card is a nvidia gtx 1060 connected to a dolby vision supporting 4k hdr tv.

BF1 on PC supports dolby vision, it's possible on PC but the limitations you're seeing would be due to licensing reasons. Madvr is open/free software, I don't think you'll see support for dolby vision anytime soon.

Dolby has an app you can buy on the windows store, I would send them an email and ask if they will provide a proper player for dolby vision on PC.

madshi has said he might support Dolby Vision some time in the distant future, but it's complicated and might be impossible, or not worth the effort. A major issue is there is no way to rip Dolby Vision to an MKV. You must keep the entire rip in an ISO or BDMV format, and not many will want to keep rips that large on their server.

I'd like to bump this discussion.

Trying to watch "Altered Carbon" it drops frames like crazy and is unplayable.

What is the current solution to watching Dolby Vision content on win 10?

for reference I am using an Intel 620

What about if you only want the HDR10-like 10-bit 'base-layer' of Dolby Vision - is it possible to rip that into mkv?

Yes, you can rip the 4K HDR10 base layer Blu-rays into mkv's.

There is DolbyVision content packaged in mkv (LG demo samples for instance) - so it is technically possible to package DV in the container.

That's mp4, not mkv

currently i have a ks9500 samsung tv which is compliant only with the hdr10 , i also own a 1080 ti gpu card and a x1300 denon receiver in between

i have some dolby vision video clips on my pc and i use mpc and madvr for playing them

most of the files is played fine in hdr and the hdr stream is passed through to the tv successfully

but the question here : was the dv streamed directly to tv and tv just played the core !! or the madvr just streamed the hdr core only ?!

MadVR cannot passthrough DV or HDR10+, only the core HDR10. DV is ignored by the MadVR.
