How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Enable HDR output mode for MediaPlayerElement for Third-party App

Fact 1:
Current only Microsoft Movie & TV app have this capability, when User play HDR video the TV will indicate it's output HDR color format

Fact 2:
Microsoft Media Player don't support HDR

Fact 3:
so as my Video Player App. even though Hardware decoding HEVC HDR Video Sample will not HDR output , color seems over exposure, beacause not enough Color space availabale.

Please expose this Feature for Developer, even just as a restricted capability will be sufficent.

refer to:

UWP on Xbox One apps have limited access to the High-Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities of the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X. For games looking to implement HDR, contact the ID@Xbox program.

this blog is focus on Games but not Apps. How do i implement HDR for my Video Player.
Receive many 1 star rating, beacause missing HDR support. many user send mail ask for it. but nothing i can do, beacause platform limitation.
