    I tried all the new 10-bit Support since the beta released and I'm very impressed. It works very well for me. There is one thing I would suggest: to be able to also stream in x264 10-bit to Youtube, since Youtube supports HDR Livestreaming. I don't know if that is on porpuse or a bug, but right...
