Question Does LG 43UH661V support Youtube HDR?

A family member has a LG 43UH661V 4K HDR tv. I know the HDR on this TV is probably not the best but wanted to see what it looked like for myself. Played some youtube 4k HDR videos from the built-in app but no HDR flag popped up nor are there any HDR options under the resolutions settings in youtube.

The manual says the TV does HDR but in what circumstances? Over hdmi, built in apps?

Can anyone who owns or has knowledge of this TV say if HDR works in youtube.

Thanks

I don't know about that set, but WRT HDR on Youtube some videos say that they are HDR and no flag shows on my set and clearly are not, and on others say HDR and the Flag comes up and are most definitely are, I would think this is a problem with either Youtube or the people uploading it have not shot it/captured it in HDR but the video was in HDR and are just saying it is, as what their watching was HDR, if that makes sense to you ha ha.

Sadly no...

The 2016 'UH' models don't support playback of VP9.2, which is the video format Youtube uses to stream video with HDR.
