Though I see great shadows and blacks on my photo viewers (Xnview and Photoshop) I have lousy details in my blacks and shadows when viewing movies or playing video games. Usually you can see how a black goes to a lesser black and eventually to other detail. All I see instead is like a blob (with an actual outline) and then something else.
I have tried various video games and also various media players including: Windows MP, VLC, GOM and PotPlayer.
I have attached a photo here taken with Windows' Snipping Tool, but, of course, it does not really give you the exact results as I view them.
