In Windows 10, there is a new setting for Video apps. This section is called Video Playback. Video Playback brings a plethora of settings and customization options for videos and movies. For example, you can enable or disable HDR video playback. HDR video playback depends on the quality of your computer monitors. You can enable HDR video playing only if your monitor has HD resolution. Windows 10 can also process videos and enhance it. Another feature which is quite interesting and useful is the ability to optimize battery life. We know that video playing drains a considerable amount of battery.

Note that not all displaysfor HDR video.” In this article, we will show you how to disable automatic processing of video when on battery. Check it out.
