I’m testing Jellyfin as replacement to my Plex setup.
I noticed that DV titles shared from Jellyfin don’t show DV “badge” in video details in Infuse. They just display generic “HDR”. Same titles show DV badge when shared by Plesx.
Media info from Jellyfin seems to identify these as DOVI:

Having an issue where infuse isn’t recognizing files as DV from an emby server. The same exact files hosted on a Plex server are recognized as DV without issue. As soon as they are hosted with Emby they show as HDR10. The .mp4 files in the emby server are showing as DV but not the .mkv files.
What Dolby Vision profile are they? I’m guessing that they’re profile 7 or Profile 8, as Profile 5 doesn’t have HDR fallback.
If they aren’t Profile 5, then Plex is doing “Fake DV.”
Do a search on the Plex forum.
But basically all Plex is doing is playing the HDR metadata whilst forcing the TV into Dolby Vision mode. Plex offer no option to turn it off.
The bottom line is Emby is playing the files correctly.
With regards to the mp4 files they are probably (but not definitely) Profile 5, so only have Dolby Vision metadata so will play fine in Plex and Emby.
