Has anyone tried YouTube hdr at all. I'm sitting in dark room. And anytime I watch an HDR clip in landscape the phones brightness goes crazy bright then dim rapidly back and forth.

Yeah I've been watching YouTube HDR since the Note 8 and it still works great. The brightness will always jump every time you go into YouTube if you have the Video Enhancer toggled on. Then it automatically decreases again when you leave the app.

I have issues with the flashing when trying to watch 4k hdr on the stock FHD video setting. But if I bump the video up to WQHD it works perfectly.

I have it set wqhd, video enhancer on. I understand that hdr will activate when i rotate the phone. but the brightness keeps going from bright to dim rapidly. If I turn auto brightness off it still does it. I have uninstalled app already. And reupdated.

Just checked my s8+ and it's not working right anymore. Has got to be YouTube app.

Only a slightly related question, but when I watch on the YouTube app it always defaults to 720p quality and I have to manually change it. It's not the internet quality since I'm running over 120 mbps. Anyway to change this?

I've searched this issue and it seems like the s9 note 8 phones also are having this issue. I've narrowed it down to watching in a dark room. its like the auto brightness or ambient light sensors are messing with the brightness. Netflix hdr does not do this at all

OMG NOW I know what you mean. This happened to me for the first time tonight with my Note 9 and I REALLY hope YouTube fixes this or if it's a software issue, that Sammy pushes a fix. I don't recall ever having this issue with my Note 8.

I just tried it in a dark room and only noticed during bright parts of the video. Only place I've noticed that is YouTube. So has to be the YouTube app. If it ever did it before I wouldn't know till since I don't watch in dark that much. I just had a YouTube update an hour or so ago. Which obviously wasn't addressing this issue.
