    You kinda underestimated hard the interest in it and that's only the registered Phoronix users who have opened this thread.
    Im really not sure how they gauge interest. KDE's bug tracker is complete and utter dogshit to the degree it actively pushes people away. and people frown upon +1 replying on issues trackers. So im not sure how we are supposed to make it clear when an issue is an actual issue.

    Take this issue for instance, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=471637 this is something that has been constantly complained to me about by people I get to try linux, Im only one person, can only vote once, and im not going to bother people to make an account for this.

I think this is what mpv should need. Wondering if anyone running the preliminary HDR stuff could test it since I wont be able to for a bit. it really would be nice since im relying on a pinned amdvlk version atm
      So I actually remembered and, yep, HDR with MPV is working on KDE Plasma 6.0 Beta 1 (mine is from kdesrc-build workspace) with RADV on CachyOS with Linux 6.6.3. All I had to do was enable HDR in KDE in the system settings and run an HDR enabled video with MPV. I tested with the Samsung Wonderland demo video.

      Games in HDR, however, are a bit more hit and miss.

      At least you won't have to pin or rely on AMDVLK anymore.
