I've run into a bit of annoying issue with Plex and my AppleTV. Whenever I try to play a video with HDR10+, the video doesn't play. But if the video uses regular HDR10, it plays just fine. From what I can see, this is a known issue with Plex, and doesn't seem like it will be fixed soon. Yes, HDR10+ is supposed to automatically fall back to HDR10 if HDR10+ isn't supported, but for whatever reason, Plex doesn't do that. What I'd like to do is convert any HDR10+ videos I have to use HDR10 instead. That will keep Plex happy and I can still watch HDR videos in HDR. My TV doesn't support HDR10+ anyway, so I don't mind that I'm losing out on it.
I'm not sure how complicated this would be, but from my understanding, HDR10+ is just metadata in the video file, which sounds like it wouldn't be necessary to re-encode the video..? Does anyone have any suggestions?

HDR-10 is just a bunch of tags.
HDR-10+ additionally adds (potentially per frame) adjustments.
=> HDR10+ is really just HDR-10 with dynamic metadata
