Microsoft Edge Canary learns how to scale video using AI

The Microsoft Edge browser on the Canary channel has a new experimental feature called Microsoft Video Super Resolution that allows you to upscale videos below 720p using artificial intelligence and your GPU. To enable the function, go to the page edge://flags/#edge-video-super-resolution.

Microsoft notes that one in three videos played in Edge is 480p or lower. To improve the viewing experience and make text more readable, the company has developed AI-powered video upscaling technology.

Microsoft Video Super Resolution requires an NVIDIA RTX 20-series (or higher) or AMD Radeon RX 5700 (or higher) GPU.

Official system requirements:

  • NVIDIA RTX 20/30/40 or AMD Radeon RX 5700 to RX 7800 series GPU.
  • The video being played must have a resolution lower than 720p.
  • The device must be connected to a power source.
  • The height and width of the video must be greater than 192 pixels.
  • The video must not be protected by DRM technologies such as PlayReady or Widevine. The browser will not be able to process and scale such videos.

If your computer meets the requirements, you will see an HD icon in your browser’s address bar.

Microsoft is also working on support for laptops with multiple GPUs. Currently, for Video Super Resolution to work, you must force Microsoft Edge Canary to run on a discrete graphics card.
