Having set my TV in 1080p due to being laggy in 4k, will my movies that are 4k be able to play natively (4k) or will they max at 1080p?

1urte bat

OK got it. I set it for 4k.

Also, does vlc play 4k HDR?

My TV supports Dolby vision and HDR. Will playing through my PC (vlc - linux mint) get the benefits or should I continue using hard drives plugged directly on the TV?

Try mpv

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
