Hi all! Is there any chance to get the codec AV1 to play youtube 8K videos on the Q900R,Q950R,Q900RB? Like new Samsung models Q950T  presented at CES 2020 will be able to play 8K videos on YT, what about us owners of 2018 model? Thanks

Good question, as a Q900R owner I would be hugely disappointed if they didn't support Youtbue 8k (via AV1).

Right! I owe a Q900RA myself and we got the hdmi 2.1 upgrade and i'm hoping we receive the same treatment for the AV1, the italian support told me they still don't know what's the next plans about because it's "early" , but let's raise our voice :smiling-face:

I'm Italian too, i received the upgraded ocb in November. Now i can only hope we get 8k on Youtube, because right now the only things i can see in 8k are Chili's Documentaries. I tried to connect my Pc with the Vega 64 via hdmi to the Hdmi 4 of the upgraded OCB but, the 8k option shows up on windows but does not work properly ( This is how it looks when i set 8k res in windows)

Hi Noirdog, I also got a Q900R (I think... It is a Q900RATXXC), how did you get the upgrade to the HDMI 2.1 ?

Ciao :smiling-face:  get in touch with Samsung Support to solve the issue, more the people more the chances, it doesn't make sense to leave us with no AV1
