It can be very annoying when the Instagram reels suddenly increase their brightness.
Many of us have encountered this problem while surfing Instagram.
Even when our phones do not have auto-brightness turned on this problem can arise.
Some videos will automatically have a high brightness even when you have adjusted the brightness.
That is because they are HDR videos.
Why Do Some Instagram Reels Get Brighter?
Sometimes while using Instagram brightness of the reels automatically increases while watching it.
Even after disabling auto-brightness, this problem can occur at times on Instagram.
This generally occurs because the reel was recorded in HDR format.
This causes the brightness to be affected by the dynamic quality of the video.
After the reel is finished playing Instagram will automatically adjust the brightness to its prior position.
HDR videos are naturally brighter than other videos which makes them feel bright even when the auto-brightness of your phone is turned off.
Except for the reels where the video itself had been recorded in the HDR format all other videos do not have this problem of auto-brightness.
You can watch those without any headache or annoyance.
